About This Attraction

Prince of Whales – Vancouver Whale Watching Adventures

As one of the largest whale watching and ecotourism companies in British Columbia, Prince of Whales Whale Watching takes it’s role in environmental stewardship seriously. Many of their vessels are some of the most environmentally-friendly vehicles afloat, ensuring that while guests are enjoying an ocean breeze and the thrill of spotting whales breeching the water’s surface, that the environment remains protected and safe.

Boasting a fleet of over ten vessels including the $3.5 million Salish Sea Dream, their most environmentally-friendly vessel to date, the company continues its efforts to protect and educate, providing an ocean-going experience that will be hard to forget.
