Russ, Pete, and Selena were our whale watching tour guides. They did an amazing job of making us comfortable, they kept it lively,and were very informative. They took us 1 1/2 hrs out to chase the only reported whale siting that morning. They displayed passion, commitment, and dedication to their job. My wife and I were on our honeymoon trip, and were rewarded.! Recommend them to anyone.
Fantastic Whale Watching

This was a wonderful experience. The crew was friendly and took the time to talk to you and give you information. They give you jackets and gloves. Light snacks are available for a donation. We were able to see multiple sightings including an Orca. The captain went out of his way to take us to where the Orca was spotted and stayed there longer than other boats in the area. It extended out trip time, but everyone one aboard thought it was worth staying. We all had a wonderful time playing lookout and telling the crew where we saw the whales. Would highly recommend this cruise.
Very good

Tons of Whales

We had a whale of a time. Whale watching trip towards the end of August. There were 20-30 Humpback whales all around the ship. Lots of whale's tales. 6 Orca whales also joined the party. Plus a bunch of lazy seals.
So sad.

Is there any way I can get the money back from this tour? My husband got very sick the morning of the the tour. We didn't make it and couldn't give 24 hr. Notice. Is there anything you can do? Thank you, Saundra Lentz. Will wait to hear from you 😊
Amazing day!

Many tours available however this operator was top notch. They really cater to their customers. Spent extra time on the water looking for different pods of whales. Saw 2 to 3 pods of orcas and at least 6 humpbacks. Knowledgeable staff makes the experience memorable

The trip was amazing from start to finish, helped by a sighting of a humpback, and two pods of orcas at close quarters, which was an incredible and memorable experience. However, even without these highlights, it was a great morning out on the water seeing plenty of other wildlife, including bald headed eagles, seals, and a sea otter. Captain Rod and Cydney provided friendly, enthusiastic and expert information and knowledge, as well as happily extending the trip to give us all longer to enjoy and marvel at the orcas while we were amongst them, all of which made this trip a major highlight of our vacation in Western Canada. I would thoroughly recommend Eagle Wing tours which, from the research I did and my experience on this trip, I believe offer the best whale watching experience in Victoria.
