We went on this tour in October and saw a number of humpback whales and large numbers of two types of Sea Lions. The naturalist taking the tour, Leah, was knowledgeable, was able to identify the individual whales that we saw, and provided information about the all the different species including the birds we could see. Above all she was friendly, approachable and clearly loved her job and enjoyed sharing her knowledge of the wildlife with us. The type of boat (covered with an upstairs viewing platform) was perfect for this type of activity and guests could shelter from the elements as we moved from spot to spot.
A wonderful tour with an excellent knowledgeable guide - Nadim - he is an absolute asset to your company. Organised, efficient and very personable - well done, Nadim! Butchart Gardens was an array of splendid colours and blooms which was both breathtaking and spectacular. Victoria was a truly beautiful elegant city steeped in history and full of atmosphere. Would definitely recommend this tour.
A definitely must do! Orca Spirit adventure was amazing! We saw lots of animals, we were lucky finding our first humpback whale in the first 15-20 minutes of our trip. Our guide Ed was amazing, funny and knowledgeable. I was a bit worried about waves, but you simply cannot feel it in this powerful boat! I will definitely go back and do it again!
Even though the ferries closed our day because of high winds you offered refund or rescheduling. We chose rescheduling the next day. Your driver also drove us around Vancouver to see a few sites and dropped us off at our request. Both drivers were friendly and informative. Good work under bad circumstances. A+
The organization of the tour was set up wonderfully. Do expect for a very long day ahead of you. Our tour guide, Randi, was very knowledgeable about the city and made the tour fun and exciting. There was plenty of time to tour the gardens and the city of Victoria.
