Five Star Whale Watching - Downtown: $55 for a Three-Hour Whale-Watching Excursion from Five Star Whale Watching (Up to $110.88 Value)

Earth’s mammals share certain commonalities, such as a four-chambered heart, cute and cuddly young, and repeated failed attempts to steal flight from the birds. Bond with ocean brethren with today’s Groupon: for $55, you get a three-hour whale-watching excursion from Five Star Whale Watching (up to a $110.88 value), taking off from Victoria Inner Harbor.

Five Star’s veteran captains, crews, and onboard naturalists guide excursions through Pacific waters frequented by pods of killer whales and a supporting cast of marine all stars. For three hours, veteran captains steer 35- and 40-passenger catamarans through the brine, inviting passengers to plant their person on any of their four viewing platforms to spot whales hunting for Victoria salmon or practicing the pirouettes for their synchronized jazz routine. Besides killer whales, oceanic sights may include any number of salt-water junkies such as seals, otters, and dolphins. Passengers maintain homeostasis with the aid of heated cabin, an on-board inventory of haute-couture jackets, and free guzzles of steamy hot chocolate. Tours leave at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. daily.

Five Star Whale Watching Ltd.

The Salish Sea hosts one of the larger killer-whale gatherings on the planet. Home to three large pods of fish-eating resident orcas and pods of transient orcas that hunt for larger mammalian game. Recent years have seen a boost in the population of Southern Resident Killer Whales, with the birth of nine baby whales since December 2014, bringing the total population in the area to 85 known individuals. This is the largest growth in population since 1977, with an average rate of only three babies born annually.

Five Star's captains give passengers a glimpse of this underwater entertainment by charting courses through the sea atop stable catamarans outfitted with four separate viewing platforms. From these lookouts, guests may spot the black and white killers, as well as minke, gray, and humpback whales and other marine life. Between sightings, crews keep parties comfortable within the heated cabin by supplying them with complimentary coffee, hot chocolate, and liquefied Herman Melville novels.
