Prince of Whales offers you a truly unique way to travel between the harbours of Vancouver and Victoria: aboard our stunning and state-of-the-art vessel Salish Sea Dream! Forgot the ferry, join our crew of professional naturalists who will provide a fun and educational perspective on our local oceanographic, geographic and cultural highlights, all while ensuring you have over a 90% chance of spotting whales and other marine mammals in their natural habitat! The sheltered waters of the Southern Gulf and San Juan Islands highlight some of the most beautiful scenery to be found on the west coast; the extraordinary approaches of both the Vancouver and Victoria Harbours provide a spectacular viewing experience; and travelling downtown-to-downtown makes this the most convenient and cost effective way to combine transit and whale watching.
Your journey will take place aboard Prince of Whales' new purpose built vessel Salish Sea Dream. She is a 23m long catamaran, capable of cruising at 30 knots and comfortably seating 94 passengers. A combination of spacious outdoor decks and luxurious indoor cabins with floor-to-ceiling windows provide unparalleled viewing opportunities, regardless of whether you choose to sit inside or out (you’ve got a guaranteed seat either way). Relax with a cup of hot chocolate from the beverage bar or enjoy the fresh breeze, you won’t miss a minute of the action!
All tours departing from Vancouver include whale watching whereas tours departing from Victoria can include whale watching or a visit to The Butchart Gardens. Give us a call or visit our website for more information."
