Everyone worked very hard to make this trip successful. It was the longest trip they had to locate the whales. Really enjoyed it.Reviewed by: Susan T, October 2012
We saw 2 pods of orcas (over 20 individuals)
Very knowledgeable staff with detailed family trees of the orcas
Excellent captain, with keen sense of safety.
Brilliant trip! We had Orcas with us for most of the time across the sound as they were going the same way as us! Close up to Sea lions and great weather! ThanksReviewed by: Alun R, September 2012

This tour was one of the highlights of our stay in Vancouver! The weather, the boat, the captain and crew were informative, and we saw so many whales! I highly recommend this tour.Reviewed by: patricia e, September 2012
We had such a good time and saw so many whales. My two daughters loved the trip - the water was not too rough at all, the staff were so helpful, and the scenery was amazing. Highly recommended.Reviewed by: Michelle A, August 2012
What a fantastic tour! Very well organised with an expert on board the boat and the captain made sure to orient the boat so that both sides had chance to take pictures of the sights - including an impressive show from the orcas! Highly recommended.Reviewed by: Darren F, June 2012
It was raining in Vancouver, but the shuttle driver was right on time and did a great job of getting us to the harbor.
The day looked like rain, so we were in the enclosed boat - we were not cold at all as a result. We saw a number of Orca's. The crew was very helpful and knowledgeable. The smaller size of the boat made it possible to move with the whales.
We had a great day.
Tour is very well organized. Unfortunately, we didn't see any whales, but overall experience was great. I would recommend this tour for personal experience.Reviewed by: Mariana A, October 2012
This was my first time whale watching. It took as around 2 hours to get to the whales but when we got there, there were a couple of them that showed themselves regularly. It was a great experience. We took a scenic route back to the harbour, which was just beautiful.
Shuttle picked us up on time and brought us to Richmond. The driver was friendly, funny and gave us bits of information along the way. Registering in their office was fast and friendly.
The naturalist Joan, who accompanied us on our trip was really nice, kept us informed and answered all our questions.
It was a great way to spend half a day and I would definitely do it again.
