Booked a whale watching cruise followed by a sea plane return to Vancouver. Turned up to be told that we need photo ID for the flight - WHICH WE HAD NOT BE TOLD BY VIATOR - so the trip was ruined. Thanks Viator.

Our captain persevered and found a humpback whale. He stayed with the whale which swam parallel to our boat until it had surfaced three times. The crew was friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful..JJ

Die Tour mit Boot und Wasserflugzeug ist ein schönes Erlebnis. Da das Wetter allerdings sehr stürmisch war, waren viele Gäste von der Seekrankheit betroffen. Dafür kann das Unternehmen natürlich nichts, aber der Kapitän hätte bei diesem Wetter langsamer fahren müssen. Ich fand es teilweise beängstigend. Erst als es einigen Gästen schlecht ging, drosselte er die Geschwindigkeit etwas. Sehr gut war der Rückflug mit dem Wasserflugzeug, das ist ein tolles Erlebnis.

Ich hatte diese Tour sehr frühzeitig gebucht. Zu dem Zeitpunkt wurde leider keine Kinderermäßigung angeboten. Hätte ich die Tour später gebucht, hätte ich ca. € 30,- gespart. Auf dem Voucher stand als Kontakt Prince of Whales Whale Watching. Dort erhielten wir allerdings nur die Bordkarte für die Bootsfahrt. Zum Rückflug mit dem Wasserflugzeug konnte man uns dort keine Auskunft geben. Auf meine Bitte machte man eine Kopie vom Voucher, so dass ich noch etwas in der Hand hatte für den Rückflug. Auf der Bootsfahrt haben wir Orcas sehen können, allerdings aus sehr weiter Entfernung. Im Vergleich zu anderen Walbeobachtungen war das eher enttäuschend. Obwohl es zu der Zeit in Vancouver sehr heiß war, war es auf dem Boot sehr kalt, man sollte sehr warme Kleidung anziehen, die man dann allerdings in Victoria mit sich herumtragen muss. Das Verhältnis zwischen Zeit für Walbeobachtungen und reiner Fahrtzeit mit Höchstgeschwindigkeit hatte ich mir ausgewogener vorgestellt. In Victoria angekommen sind wir dann erst einmal mit unserem Voucher zum Seaplane Harbour gegangen. Nach Rücksprache mit anderen Kollegen konnte die Dame am Check-In dann unsere Buchung finden und bat uns, eine halbe Stunde vor Abflug wieder zu kommen. Der Flug mit dem Wasserflugzeug war sicher ein Erlebnis. Ich persönlich würde diesen Ausflug nicht noch einmal buchen, sondern eher eine kürzere Whale Watching Cruise und separat einen Sightseeing Flug mit dem Wasserflugzeug über Vancouver. Die wenig aussagekräftigen
