We went on the Orca Spirit to spot Whales and Orcas, we were three adults and a five year old child.We found the whole experience very informative and very professional. We would repeat it again for sure and we got to see amazing views of the majestic sea mammals in their habitat. Breath taking

This tour was the highlight of our short time in Victoria, the captain was awesome and very informative. We saw killer whales, seals, eagles, and the best was a mamma humpback and her yearling calf. That calf was extremely active, he jumped, breached, showed his tail, and his amazingly tall pectoral fins over and over and over again! it was awesome!
