    Very convenient pickup and drop off at my hotel. I had a reserved seat on the bus. Brent was very knowledgeable about the area. We had a wonderful sunny day which made everything more enjoyable.

    The crew was kind and knowledgable. Catamaran was big enough to be safe and comfortable for a young kid. The washrooms were clean. The photos that the crew took were a really a nice thing to include in the package.

    Feeling lucky to have a a clear day for our 2nd visit to Butchart Gardens. Awesome place full of spring bloom, color, and variety. Friendly staff and CVS Tour driver was courteous and knowledgeable of Victoria history. The gardens are a feast for the eyes.

    We went on a morning boat and had such a good time. Yes, it was cold but the team was extremely prepared with coats, gloves and hats and I cannot say enough about our naturalist, Lily. She was extremely knowledgeable about all the wildlife and the area. I’m a person with a million questions and she just knew absolutely everything and was so good at explaining things in a genuinely enthusiastic and entertaining way. Orcas were the highlight, Lily was a very close second! Money well spent!!

    Our driver, David, was so excellent he gave us many many tips for restaurants and other things to do around Vancouver. Bishar gardens was stunning and it's lovelyness with thousands and thousands of tulips in bloom.

    Book it!! This company went above and beyond for our small group. We came from a cruise line and after docking, we weren't able to get off the boat for almost 2 hours later. They let us go at a later time and sent someone straight to the dock to pick us up, instead of us having to meet at the storefront. They didn't have to do that, but it was amazing of them that they did!

    Matias was an EXCELLENT tour guide. He made sure everyone was having a great time, took us to see sea lions and seals, and made sure we got to see some whales. Unfortunately, we didn’t see much of the whale (just the back and tail, but that was no one’s fault. He made sure everyone had gotten their pictures when we stopped before taking off again, had tons of knowledge of the animals and their habits. It was one of the best tours we had! I'll def be back again.

    Word of advice, they do provide thick coverall-type jumpsuit to wear, but if you are going when the weather is going to be cold, bring gloves and a warm beanie. A mask/scarf that covers your mouth would be great too if it's raining, otherwise the rain does sting a little but it's bearable.

    Since we were only ashore for a short time, we decided we'd need help finding our way around, Richard gave us the most interesting and in depth history of Victoria, while showing us all the beautiful city. Can't thank you enough!

    Our driver was Andy and he did a great job. Very knowledgeable and helpful. The ferry ride was interesting and scenic. Butchart gardens a real delight and,yes, we could have spent longer there however tour organisers have timetables to keep. Plus we were to have time in Victoria and most of the passengers were going back to Vancouver that evening making it a really long day for them. Our night at the empress was excellent and worth it. We had plenty of time next day to check out Victoria and we had a flight back from downtown Victoria to downtown Vancouver

    We had an absolutely amazing experience with SpringTide. Every one of their staff members were so friendly and helpful, we were smiling from start to finish. We were lucky enough to see Humpbacks, Orcas and even a Gray Whale! Not to mention all of the other amazing biodiversity that the area has to offer. What really made the experience special was the knowledge and excitement from the Captain and Crew, they really welcomed us into their world and helped us appreciate the magic of the Salish Sea. You cannot visit Victoria without going on a tour with SpringTide Whale Watching!

    We enjoyed out trip very much! It was a cool, windy afternoon but we dressed warm and were able to warm up inside out of the wind before venturing out again. We spent about an hour watching a Grey Whale coming to the surface and diving. Magnificent. We also saw sea lions and harbour seals. The captain and crew were friendly and knowledgeable.
