    I had the greatest experience whale watching today, with Prince of Whales. On board the Ocean Magic 11 was a comfortable, incredible viewing experience sitting up top. Jeff our captain new exactly where to find us a fantastic viewing of a hand full of Orca Whales I believe not far from Race Rocks. Lindsy, one of the on board guides was extremely friendly and knowledgeable and kept us well in formed on what kinds of whales we watched.
    I would highly recommend choosing the Prince of Whales for your whale watching pleasure!

    I highly recommend this excursion to the San Juan/Gulf Islands to see the resident Orcas. We went on a flawless warm July day. We were introduced to members of J and L pods who treated us to a thrilling choreography of paired dives, spy-hoping, rolls, breeches, fin-flaps, tail flashes, and much frolicking, on a calm sea with majestic Mount Baker for a back-drop. We watched more than a dozen whales all around us for at least 90 minutes, at a distance that was not encroaching on their activities but was close enough to see it all. I fell in love...Read More

    The first trip we did on a rib-boat, but it was very foggy and we didn't spot any whales (not their fault of course).

    We got a second trip for free which we took the next day on the bigger boat. We saw a flock or killer whales on that trip.

    I would recommend the bigger boat because it's more stable and more comfortable. It's better to take pictures and the guides tell you a lot about the whales. The rib-boats are fun, but with 400 bhp not that fast.

    I had so much fun on this tour!
    Not only was the boat ride fun, but the guides were so smart!
    The staff were all friendly and made this a great experience.
    We saw so many whales! We got to watch the whales play for so long!
    Everyone not only had time to take wonderful pictures but sit and enjoy the whales.
    I would recommend this tour to everyone!

    Several years ago my sister and I went out on a tour with Price of Whales and had a fantastic time (Would have loved to take my wife, but she is not much of a boat person). For our trip out we did not see any orca's, but did see a humpback (I think that's what it was?). Regardless we had a great time - the staff was incredibly friendly, the ride was great - any day out on the water is a great day.

    It would have been nice to see some killer whales, but we totally understand that you can't seem then 100% of the time.

    Would definitely go out with...Read More

It was nice to know this boat had restrooms and a snack bar... and a inner seating if it was too cold for outdoor viewing.

If you want to remember your whale watching experience for a long time.. pick these folks !!!!

I fell in love with these graceful creatures and their home-turf. All the staff had deep knowledge of the geography of the region and the ecology and behavior of the Orcas, and they shared their passion for the well-being of this iconic Northwest species, including the main threats to their survival. They made me want to learn more about the whales and spawned a commitment to actively campaign for the end of their captivity in aquariums around the world and for measures that would protect their habitat in the Salish Sea. july 11, 2014
