It’s no secret that our little Island and its surrounding ocean are home to some of the most uniquely beautiful wildlife around, and that many travel far and wide just to be privy to some of those spectacular sights.

Whale-watching in particular is staple of Victoria, with none other than Five Star Whale Watching being the oldest (and most renowned!) of its kind in our fair city, family-owned and operated with pride from the iconic Inner Harbour.

With their small but mighty fleet of vessels, Five Star aims to provide the best experience on your next adventure – whether that be through whale-watching tours, packaged tours or even private tours.

From the famed Orcas, to Humpbacks and even Puffins and Sea Lions, there is always plenty to see out on one of their whale-watching expeditions – check out the photos below to see for yourself!

Better yet?

You could win a whale-watching tour for four and experience sights like this firsthand!

On the fence about booking? While they can never guarantee a whale sighting in their natural habitat, Five Star are confident that over 98% of the time in peak season months we will be able to show you whales in the wild!

This meaning that if the whale friends decide to play hide and seek and on the rare occasion you don’t get a sighting, between June 1st – October 31st, you’ll get a complimentary tour – weather and space permitting!

This also means that peak whale-watching season is soon coming to close, so head to their website and book online before the end of October!

You can also use the code BUZZ20 to get 20% off your next booking with them!
