Sea King Adventures Guest Comments
Here is a comment from one of out tour guests from Rome,
read her whole blog with pics from the tour
"the best part of it was that being over there we met Captain Ron of Sea King
We had considered taking one of the bigger whale watching tours
from the inner harbor, but when we saw Captain Ron's set up in Fisherman's
Wharf, we knew it was all coming together.
40 people crammed onto a huge zodiac, all strapped in
OR just P & I on a small 10-seater with the only owner-operated tour in
Emelie shares her video about some Dall's Porpoises they
saw bow- running the next boat
Easy choice! We were so lucky that Captain Ron decided to
take us out, even though it was just the two of us... well Bro, the dog (who
made awesome company), had to come too... (ya can't leave the dog locked in the
shop, people.) It really made it an unforgettable experience. With Ron's
knowledge of the sea and our ability to just ask him questions and make him stop
for photo taking... it was just awesome. oh. and i mean... we saw freaking
killer whales, my friends!!!!
here's a tidbit about Sea King Adventures. If you are ever in Victoria, i not
only recommend going out with Captian Ron, but I also would go so far as to try
to dissuade you from going on one of the more commercially available tours...
it's just that much better. Plus you get to leave from fisherman's wharf and you
can probably squeeze in a fish n' chips before you leave... i hear Barb makes a
