Well, it is the middle of winter so performance boating will be slim, not that this is the performance boating center of the universe.
Good news is that it is beautiful in that area, specially on a clear day. Victoria is an incredible medium sized city that is very European culture and design wise.
I think your best bet to get to Orcas Island is to use the Washington state ferry from San Juan Island which is close to Victoria. If it is clear, consider chartering a small plane. The view from up there is unbelievable. Take a camera and post pics.
