The entire experience was excellent. Great communication pre-trip, engaging interactions on board, a very well-designed boat and fortunately it was a sunny day with beautiful blue skies and we saw a group of orcas as well as some bald eagles, sea lions and sea otters. The boat was fast and the wind felt cold so wrap up well. Wind breakers gloves and caps were a welcome offering. All in all a fun morning and a must do in Victoria.

The crew was wonderful, we saw around 15-17 whales 🐳 and also other habitants of the ocean :) definitely recommend for those who’s having their first time on the island. Please arrive a little bit earlier than check in time if it’s your first time. It took us a while to locate the check in desk as we didn’t quite know where to go.

This whale watching trip was absolutely fantastic. We saw humpback whales, an orca, a bald-headed eagle and a lots of other wild life in an amazing environment. The naturalists Russ and Jane provided lots of background and were able to answer all our questions. This company provides a great experience and is taking environmental protection very seriously.

We had an excellent experience. We saw many whales and an orca. The background given by the naturalists Russ and Jane was very interesting, often funny and led to lively discussions. Good Covid protocol. The scenery was absolutely amazing.

Russ, Pete, and Selena were our whale watching tour guides. They did an amazing job of making us comfortable, they kept it lively,and were very informative. They took us 1 1/2 hrs out to chase the only reported whale siting that morning. They displayed passion, commitment, and dedication to their job. My wife and I were on our honeymoon trip, and were rewarded.! Recommend them to anyone.

Fantastic Whale Watching

This was a wonderful experience. The crew was friendly and took the time to talk to you and give you information. They give you jackets and gloves. Light snacks are available for a donation. We were able to see multiple sightings including an Orca. The captain went out of his way to take us to where the Orca was spotted and stayed there longer than other boats in the area. It extended out trip time, but everyone one aboard thought it was worth staying. We all had a wonderful time playing lookout and telling the crew where we saw the whales. Would highly recommend this cruise.

We had a whale of a time. Whale watching trip towards the end of August. There were 20-30 Humpback whales all around the ship. Lots of whale's tales. 6 Orca whales also joined the party. Plus a bunch of lazy seals.

Is there any way I can get the money back from this tour? My husband got very sick the morning of the the tour. We didn't make it and couldn't give 24 hr. Notice. Is there anything you can do? Thank you, Saundra Lentz. Will wait to hear from you 😊

Many tours available however this operator was top notch. They really cater to their customers. Spent extra time on the water looking for different pods of whales. Saw 2 to 3 pods of orcas and at least 6 humpbacks. Knowledgeable staff makes the experience memorable

The trip was amazing from start to finish, helped by a sighting of a humpback, and two pods of orcas at close quarters, which was an incredible and memorable experience. However, even without these highlights, it was a great morning out on the water seeing plenty of other wildlife, including bald headed eagles, seals, and a sea otter. Captain Rod and Cydney provided friendly, enthusiastic and expert information and knowledge, as well as happily extending the trip to give us all longer to enjoy and marvel at the orcas while we were amongst them, all of which made this trip a major highlight of our vacation in Western Canada. I would thoroughly recommend Eagle Wing tours which, from the research I did and my experience on this trip, I believe offer the best whale watching experience in Victoria.

I'm very happy we choose Eagle Wing Whale Watching tours and the 12-passenger speed boat. The speedboat ride itself was exhilarating, on top of seeing orcas, a humpback, sea lions, and a sea otter. This tour company was well worth paying a little more for, and I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
