Every whale-watching adventure may be different depending on the day’s marine activity. The cruise often starts with visits to the small islands off the coast of Victoria to begin the exciting search for whales. Listen as your expert crew explains the surrounding marine ecosystems of the Pacific. Learn about the important food chains in each area and the types of animals found there. Often, the crew will pull kelp on board and give you a chance to touch, feel and taste where many of the food chains begin.
This exciting whale-watching cruise is conducted on a boat designed specifically for whale watching, and provides a smooth, swift and stable ride. Enjoy the indoor and outdoor seating areas for great panoramic views. This tour is fun for the entire family!
The tour was well organized!
The guides were friendly and answered all our questions !
Highly recommend it
Location was convenient at the Empress as we were staying right across
The crew were very knowledgeable about the animal life.
I had a nice tour with Five Star Whale watching. They were professional and I liked the boat, because when it gets cold you can sit inside. Also at end of trip you might be tired and you can rest. Was not a great sightings day, but we did see three Killer Whales one was a baby. We saw one meinke whale far off. No guarantees with nature, but I had a very good trip with them. Highly recommend this company.
We were able to see several sightings of the L Pod family. It was very exciting.
