Great excursion!!! The crew were fantastic, the boat is very comfortable and best of all we were able to see some humpbacks, porpoises and lots of other marine mammals! It was a nice sunny day which helped a lot but keep in mind that once you are out in the open waters, it does get chilly when the boat is cruising. They do provide warm coats plus coffee and hot chocolate. Our expert naturalist can't remember her name was fantastic and it was great to see how excited she got when we spotted a whale even though she does this all of the time... her excitement was infectious and it made for a more fun experience plus she really knew her stuff!!! Highly recommend this one over the zodiacs myself if you are looking for a more comfortable way to see the whales without losing out on getting up close.
Really enjoyed this cruise. The naturalists were very informative about the whales, the ecological challenges marine life is facing today. The boat was comfortable and my husband was particularly appreciative of the warm parkas they keep on board for passenger use. It was a very interesting afternoon and I would not hesitate to take another tour with them should I come back to Victoria.
our trip was exciting , challenging and fun. we saw whales at a distance. Mother nature was kind enough to give us great weather and whales to watch.Our guides were so great they are experience both in knowledge and care of the passengers. My wife was feeling sea sick in the middle part of the trip and our guide took really great care of her which I am very thankful. The trip is highly recommended I suggest you take some anti motion sickness pills prior as the waters can be roucg when the boat speeds up.
What an amazing cruise! The naturalists on board were very knowledgeable and were great at answering any questions we had. The captain did an excellent job of finding good areas to see whales and other marine animals. Highly recommend!
The cruise was amazing! It was as if the whales, sea lions and harbor seals were performing for us that day.
Had a fantastic time and the crew was great! We spent just the right amount of time at each viewing site.
This was a wonderful experience. Standing on the boat and driving to the strait of juan de fuca is a lot of fun. We saw 3-5 humpback whales, 30ish sea lions and 10-15 orca whales. One of the orcase swam directly under our boat and it was quasi underneath us. I would do this trip again! The staff was very friendly and offered us free coffee and hot chocolate.
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.
