Five Star Fishing & Whale Watching

Always A Great Day

Always have a great day going out with this charter! They make sure everyone is taken care of, whether it's unhooking a caught fish, detangling lines, refilling bait, etc. The captain seems to be everywhere, helping out as much as the deck hands. They always make sure everyone leaves with fish!

Such an amazing experience!!

While heading out to the "hot spot" for whale sightings, we had our first encounter with a minke whale within the first 45 minutes! We continued on a little further to where we had the pleasure of meeting up with a humpback whale and her calf. Those two put on a show that we'll never forget. In the 4 hour tour, we witnessed 6 whales (3 different species) and several dolphins! The entire trip was made pleasurable by a very experienced Captain and his professional and courteous crew. Having a small bar and snacks on board also helped to complete the experience!

Excellent time for all

I took my 4 grand kids that had never been deep sea fishing and they had such an amazing experience. We did not catch as many fish as we wanted to but just the experience alone of seeing the whales and the dolphins and getting some huge fish not Pollock or Haddock but just the same we loved every minute of it! Definitely will book others!!!

Highly Recommend

We had booked the Northern Star for a private company event to take our customers out fishing. Could not be more pleased with the service on the boat and how friendly everyone was. Everyone on the boat had a great time and went home with fish.
