Prince of Whales Whale Watching
The very best of whale watching in Victoria and Vancouver, British Columbia is piloted by Prince of Whales. Our team, operating with respect for all habitats and species, leads memorable eco-adventures sighting incredible Orca (Killer) Whale pods, Minke Whales, Humpback Whales eagles, sea lions and more. Tours depart from Victoria or Vancouver every day in the summer months and from Victoria in the winter.

With the largest fleet of eco-adventure boats on Vancouver Island, we are able to offer the greatest variety of options. From a 3 hour tour to a full day adventure which can include a stop at the world famous Butchart Garden or travel between Victoria and Vancouver - or both, the Prince of Whales offers more opportunity than any other company to see Whales and all of the great creatures that inhabit the Pacific West Coast.

This company offers both zodiacs and boats with a deck/indoor area. Unless it is a really nice day, I cant imagine the zodiacs arent rugged to take for 3 hours. It was freezing in the wind, and we went out in May. We didn't see any whales, but that is no reflection on the company - they are there or they are not, not much to be done about that.

Went out today and didn't see much of anything. You want to blame the tour company, but you can't. It's the selfish animals that refused to show themselves that are the real problem. The staff was knowledgeable and seemed to try checking various places to see whales, but it just didn't happen. We saw a few seals/sea lions and a couple of bald eagles.

No matter which company you choose, do your best to pick a day with low wind. The wind creates a lot of chop in the water which slows down the progress of the boats. This means they will probably visit less places in order to make sure they have you back in 3 hours.

Some companies offer guarantees whereby if you don't see orcas, you can go on standby for free at a later date. This company does not offer that. In our case, it wouldn't have helped.

As for the boat, we took the Ocean Magic which has a downstairs indoor section and an upstairs outside deck. Taking one of their zodiac boats in this weather would have mainly been awful, so we were happy about our choice. The Ocean Magic also has bathrooms and a snack bar that is open briefly during the trip.
