Golfing at Olympic View Golf Course

This beautiful championship course is rated in the top 35 in Canada. Gardens abound the challenging 18 holes with many lakes, rock outcroppings, and even a few waterfalls. Each hole has a personality of its own, making for an exciting game that favours no specific shot, other than accuracy due to the tightness of some fairways. This is a must play while visiting Victoria

Whale Watching

“Turning heads since 1985” is much more than just a catchy tag line. It is also a description of what Five Star Whale Watching has consistently done with innovative vessel design and attention to the passenger experience. While you can never guarantee a wild animal in their natural habitat, whale sightings in June are common.  Experience the beauty and majesty of the Orca whale in its natural habitat.
