What to expect
  • Board an open-air zodiac-style vessel at the Victoria harbor and settle in for your 3-hour whale-watching cruise. These boats are equipped with bright yellow inflatable collars and a stable design that cushions your ride and guarantees maximum buoyancy even if the sea conditions are rough. These specially powered boats can cover over 100 miles in one trip, maximizing the distance you can travel on your tour and the amount of time you are ultimately able to spend viewing whales and other marine wildlife. On your 3-hour cruise, travel along the protected waters of Haro Strait and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, making stops at several points of interest. The boat will be positioned parallel to the animals, so you can enjoy fantastic photo opportunities. All the while, you will be fully entertained and educated by the industry’s best marine adventure guides. All passengers must wear a Mustang Survival flotation suit for their entire cruise. These suits are designed to protect from cold weather and use closed-cell foam to offer flotation in the event of an emergency. There is a large inventory of flotation suits of varying size and can accommodate all ages. There are also changing facilities and lockable storage on board for your convenience.

Lots of humpbacks!
Oct 2021 • Couples
We went out with Mark, a very seasoned guide and tenured cetatian expert. We saw lots of humpback whales, including plenty right up close on the Zodiac. He also took us to see sea lions on the way back to Victoria.

A Whaley Great Experience!
Totally recommend. It was brilliant fun! Zipping across the water at speed was much more up our street than a sedate cruise. We were certainly out with the elements and had 4 sitings of humpbacks. Jasper was knowledgeable and informative. The 3.5hrs went by really quickly. Make sure you have warm layers underneath the huge dry suits and although hats and gloves are supplied the wind whipping around your face is colder than you might think! A fabulous experience and wonderful to see whales are close quarters.

Bucket List Experience!
Oct 2021
We went with Prince of Whales on the recommendation from a friend and we are so glad we did. It was really an amazing experience for us. Our Captain, Jasper, was so knowledgeable about the whales we saw (both orcas and a humpback), and the speedy boat ride itself was quite fun. This is something we would definitely do again.

Do this when you visit Victoria!
It was so beautiful, I actually wept. Besides Mother Nature giving us the best conditions, Mark was a wonderful boat captain. Mark shared just the right amount of facts, quiet to enjoy the sights, and personality. We felt safe and secure but it was exhilarating and fun. Highly recommend.

Amazing adventure in the ocean
Sep 2021 • Family
It was so much fun, and a real adventure. Me and the kids (10 and 11), we really enjoyed our time onboard. We saw *a lot* of whales and orcas: more than we ever expected to see. They were very close. If was a real and breathtaking encounter with sea animals. We were happy to watch them, because they are absolutely amazing as they swim and jump.

Our captain, Mark, was like a hero from a movie. We will remember him forever. He did everything in his power so that we could see orcas, whales, and sea lions. Great speed (who-hoo!) and smart tactics. Brought us back safe and sound.

Definitely recommend this tour to everyone who wants to experience an adventure in the ocean, and to see amazing creatures who live on our planet.
