About 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.
