If you are looking for a unique, laid back way to see the coast of Georgetown, Penang, look no further. Blue Whale Cruises took us out on a dinner cruise for sunset over Penang and it was fantastic. Eileen, the owner, pays close attention to detail and serves up one heck of a dinner. There was so much food we... More

I went on the full day Monkey Beach Cruise. The boat leaves from Straits Quay at around 10am and returns at around 3pm. We were welcomed onto the boat by friendly crew and given a welcome drink which was refreshing. My partner and I chose to sit up the front of the boat on the way to Monkey Beach. The... More

When we meet , I tell Eileen that my brother in law is allergic to sea food, Eileen... More

A must do on a visit to Penang as it capture the beauty of the island. Watching the sunset from the boat is something special. A lovely meal was made by the genuine and lovely Eileen who gave us a local history lesson and first hand knowledge of the island. Overall an excellent experience, well worth every penny. Definitely recommended.

Eileen and crew still working their magic on Blue Whale Cruises. Don't leave Penang without enjoying the delights of a sunset or daytime cruise. Food excellent. Highly recommended.

Taking a boat trip in Penang with Eileen's love and care is a must for visitors, particularly children. either you do it at the beginning of your stay and it gives you an overview or at the end, a kind of round up! Eileen has a special gift for children, to make them feel at ease on board!

I read about Blue Whale Cruises here on Trip adviser, and sent Eileen an email. She responded immediately, telling me she would be in touch when she had the numbers. Two weeks went by before she got in touch to say she had a group waiting to sail. Originally the dream child of her husband, he died three years ago... More

We enjoyed a wonderful evening cruise along the Penang coast which afforded fabulous views and a picture-perfect sunset. The scenery from the boat was simply outstanding and I was amazed at how different the landscape looked from the water; it certainly provides abundant photographic opportunities for those 'extra special holiday snaps'. The cruise itself was worth every penny (or RM)... More
