I wish I could give it more than 5 stars! This was so amazing! We were on a family vacation with our 12 and 14 year olds and thought this would be a fun way to see the island but I though twice at the thought of spending close to $400 total on a 30 minute experience. I’m so happy I decided to do it anyway, although the reviews were very positive, I truly didn’t expect it to be as great as it was. Everyone was so friendly and helpful from our check in at the little airport to the pilot (he totally made the flight and was SO nice to our kids). Seeing Victoria by air is an experience I will never forget.
It was a very enjoyable flight. It was only when we boarded the plane that we found out we could have bought headsets for an audible commentary or at least given a map to give us some idea of where we were flying over but none of these were offered to us at check in which would have made the flight even better .
The guides, Val, shanna, John snd then Captain Bill - we’re knowledgeable, informative and entertaining. My husband, son and I had a great time. We saw a lot of Orcas, seals and Ollie the otter. I’m glad our trip was cancelled the day before when it was windy. Our day was memorable.
Guide showed up at pick-up hotel on-time, was very informative and courteous through-out the tour. Very accommodating of what we wanted to see and timing. Got us back to drop-off hotel on-time. It was a very good day.
The crew was awesome and very knowledgable; especially Marcus and Maria. When my daughter was cold; they were quick to bring her a hot chocolate and a jacket!! Would recommend to all friends and family!!
