Spring Tide is the Best!!! They were Very Organized and Promt with their Passengers and Departure Times and Arrival!!! The Luxury Ocean liner was Clean and Update!!! The Captains, and Guides were Extremely Knowledgeable and Very Professional, and Kind!!! Excellent Customer Service, and we got to see a Great Deal of Orca Pods and The Majestic Hump Back Whales and Seals!!! I'm Sure the other Whale Watching Company are Wonderful, but Spring Tides was the one I choose and I was Very Pleased, and I would definitely Recommend them!!! Excellent Experience and Wonderful Time!!!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š

I had the most magical time on the Spring Tide boat today. The crew was outstanding. Morgan, who checked me in was friendly and warm. Heather, the Naturalist on the boat, really made the trip. She has so much whale knowledge. It was so helpful to hear her commentary while we were watching the whales. And see whales we did! An incredible display of Humpbacks for over 2 hours. Ian, the captain did an amazing job of finding the whales, and then gently manoeuvring the boat into just the right spots. I would highly recommend this tour operator! It was definitely the highlight of my trip.
