    What to Expect
    This full-day whale-watching experience in Victoria from Vancouver meets at Westin Bayshore Hotel in Downtown Vancouver. Check-ins begin at 7:30a.m., and the tour departs right at 8:30a.m. The tour doesn’t wait for late passengers, so make sure to be on time.

    First, board a boat, and journey out on the Salish Sea. Your guide tells you interesting facts about the whales and other marine life that inhabit the water. Keep your eyes peeled for the four hours you’re out on the sea and you might catch sights of whales, sea birds, and other animals.

    Afterward, get about three hours of free time to explore Downtown Victoria. You can spend the time however you'd like. Victoria has many shops and restaurants you can stop in. Then it’s time to take your seaplane ride back to Vancouver.

    Your plane ride lasts about 30 to 35 minutes. See scenic sights from up in the air of the area, including the Gulf Islands. Your flight lands and leaves you at the Vancouver Harbour Flight Centre.

    We loved every minute of this excursion! We sat on the deck of the boat the whole time. We saw two groups of whales as well as seals, porpoises and bald eagles. The staff were very knowledgeable and shared so much information with us! They...More

    This is more of an expensive method of transportation from Vancouver to Victoria, rather than a whale watching tour. It’s almost like, “we’ll get you to Victoria and maybe on the way, we’ll look for some whales”...in our case, we were about 30 minutes out...More

    Hello Roland, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are very sorry that our tour didn't meet your expectations. We operate many different adventures from Vancouver, Victoria and Telegraph Cove. Some of these adventures do not include a whale...More

    We found the information from this company misleading in several details. 1. We were informed that the trips would be whale watching both ways, ie that if we didn't see any whales from the boat, then the second part of the trip by seaplane would...More

    Hello Penelope, We appreciate you sharing your experience with us as all customer feedback is very important to us. It is possible to see a whale from the Seaplane but we would never promote the Seaplane experience as a ''whale watching portion'' of the tour....More
