Five Star Whale Watching
Join Five Star Whale Watching for an adventure of a lifetime – an experience that you will never forget! As Victoria’s longest-running family owned and operated whale watching company and first catamaran company, Five Star has positioned itself at the forefront of establishing Victoria as a world-class destination for whale watching. Setting the bar high for the local whale watching industry, it has been inspiring and educating visitors since 1985, introducing them to the wonders of the Salish Sea and the resident orca whales.
Five Star's high-speed expedition catamaran is the only vessel of its kind, offering the most stability and best platforms for viewing. The crew of on board marine biologists will guide you with expertise on the whales and the waters in which they live. With the highest repeat customer base and number one ranking on TripAdvisor, you will certainly leave Victoria in awe and longing for return. As their esteemed “local whale guru” Ron Bates (researcher) so eloquently states, “Nothing prepares you for the first sight and sound of a killer whale or whales coming out of the fog. They just sail along so confidently and with full knowledge of where they are and what they are doing. Maybe someday we will understand more.”
Come for the journey of a lifetime! The Five Star office is conveniently located at the Fairmont Empress hotel, next to Miniature World.
