Enjoyed a beautiful day out on the water and headed towards Race Rocks but sadly saw only one quiet humpback. We did a quick tour around the islands to see the sea lions and then headed back to see the humpback one more time before taking a long time-wasting journey going out to Oak Bay before heading back to the dock. Left at 2:15pm and returned by 4:50pm. Kristen was more informative than Andrew but overall their interaction with the customers and sharing of knowledge was less than impressive. I understand that 5 Star cannot guarantee a superb outing but overall, it was not worthwhile. As we did have a lone sighting their guarantee policy was invalid. Perhaps they could reconsider as a goodwill gesture.

Really only went to one spot and then circled around for hours. Finally a hump back whale was seen. Then we proceeded to circle the humpback and waste time that should of been given to find Orcas.

Good conditions of weather and season but not any whales, the sea was really flat... Its not whales but sealions watching... the sealions looks like a joker... Victoria is not the best spot for whales, definetely.

Just a fantastic way to spend three hours. We didn't see whales, but it didn't matter. We cruised by Race Rocks, a protected marine area, and saw elephant seals (nearly 4,000 pounds each), California sea lions, Steller sea lions, a sea otter (a rare sight) and plenty of waterfowl. The boat is very comfortable, with outside seating on both lower and upper levels, and an indoor cabin to protect against cold breezes. They serve hot chocolate and coffee, there's a restroom on board, and the crew was very personable and friendly. Do it. It's worth it.
