Cruising Alaska, July 2007 - Victoria-Seattle-Whitehorse
We tied up to the Victoria dock at 5:30 pm. We had researched orca viewing excursions, but decided not to book anything until we saw what the weather was like.
This morning we booked the ship's excursion, which is operated by Five Star Whale Watching. It's interesting to note that all
of their tours cost $89 except the 6:30 departures which are aimed at cruise ships - they cost $115 for the same tour.
Our catamaran pulled away from a dock among some very cool floathouses at 6:25 and headed for San Juan Island on the American side of the strait. As you can see from this photo, there's a lot going on in the Victoria harbour.
