Whale Watching In Victoria British Columbia

Whale watching in the Strait of Georgia is an experience I will never forget.

There’s something quiet and serene about the Pacific Northwest.  At least, that’s how I see it.

After exploring Seattle and the San Juan Islands, we traveled to Vancouver Island in British Columbia.

While in Victoria, we decided to go whale watching.  This adventure was inspiring for many reasons, thanks to Eagle Wing Tours.  The guides are truly passionate about what they do.  I’m inspired by those who leave this world better than they found it.  The captains and naturalists are true to their word.  As a result, we didn’t complete our whale watching adventure until we sited what we were out there for.  The wildlife.  From sea lions, elephant seals and sea otters to dolphins, orcas and humpback whales, we saw all of them.

From the looks of it, you wouldn’t believe we took the sunset tour.

This is the Pacific Northwest, after all.  It’s plagued by overcast skies, along with rain and cold temperatures.  But, we didn’t let that get us down.

    These pictures were awesome! I wish we would have seen whales like this when we were in Alaska!

      Thank you Wanda! My husband and I love to travel and explore like locals. We’re always amazed what we come across with doing little research and going with the flow. But I’ll be honest, sometimes it causes mild arguments!
