Nice and fast service on the flight there and back. We saw 23 orcas on our whale tour! And got a bunch of hours to walk around Victoria! Lovely day highly recommend :)

It is of course a matter of luck whether you actually see whales or not. We were lucky enough to see at least a single orca and a gray whale.

Great day especially the whale watching where we were lucky enough to see whales breaching multiple times.

Very well organized and we actually saw whales several times.

Well cared for, still free time to look around in Victoria.
