we are visiting victoria, vancouver, and seattle the week of may 26. i'd like to go whale watching, but i want to go on the tour that spends the least amount of time traveling TO the whales. i don't want to boat out for 2-3 hours into the ocean, watch whales for 30 minutes, and then boat back for 2-3 hours. is it possible to see whales and only travel for about an hour one way?
which whale watching tour would be closest to accomplishing this goal? i'm thinking victoria. unfortunately, we cannot go to tofino which might be the quickest tour. we would also like an enclosed boat. thank you for any advice!
