Prince of Whales Whale Watching
With a large number of vessels and almost 50 employees in peak season, Prince of Whales is British Columbia’s largest whale-watching and eco-adventure company. During the summer, our high-speed, custom-built 74-passenger Ocean Magic vessel will take you across the Salish Sea for the chance to witness orcas, minke whales, humpback whales, sea lions, eagles, and more in their natural habitat.
Our tour options also include seaplane and helicopter flights, admission to the world-famous Butchart Gardens, and one-way transfers between Vancouver, Victoria, and Seattle. Now a Canadian Signature Experience, the Ultimate Day Tour to Victoria is the best way to include whale and wildlife viewing, touring Victoria’s Inner Harbour, Butchart Gardens, and a sunset cruise back to Vancouver in a day. Overnight options are available.
Whether you are a first time zodiac adventurer or a seasoned veteran, we guarantee the adventure of a lifetime. Launching from the hotel, our fleet of open-air, purpose-built, zodiac-style vessels is Vancouver’s fastest and safest way to view the city from the sea.
Adventures begin cruising along Vancouver’s Inner Harbour, then soaring up to 55 kilometers per hour while crossing the Burrard Inlet. Along the way, our experienced, passionate skippers will provide a fascinating array of information, highlighting the sights of Vancouver’s Coal Harbour, Northshore, English Bay, False Creek, and Stanley Park. With more than 30 possible points of interest, each adventure is tailored to the preferences of thrill-seeking passengers.
Available year-round, our Fly-Whales-Fly package combines a three-hour marine wildlife tour with a roundtrip Vancouver-to-Victoria seaplane adventure.
