The dolphins were beautiful and it was lovely to see the little babies with their mums. I knew I would enjoy it but never expected to have... More

I took my 16 year old granddaughter on a dolphin cruise last weekend. What a wonderful experience. The staff at the counter were chatty and very friendly. The boat was shiny and new and plenty of great seats to see everything. Morning tea was wonderful and all the crew were knowledgeable, helpful and very friendly. We saw so many dolphins... More

My wife, son and I went on the whale watching cruise and it was a fantastic trip. The crew were great and very knowledgeable. It cost $80 each and was worth it. There is a river cruise as well for $35. You need to check at the jetty or phone ahead to find out what cruise goes on what day.... More

Today we traveled on the Amaroo for a whale watch with myself, my partner and our three year old son. The crew on board the boat were courteous and welcoming while on the boat, and knew everything there was to know on Dolphins and Whales, including where to find them! The boat is new as of July this year, and... More

Great experience with a professional outfit. New boat is very comfortable either downstairs covered in Check before booking if unsure of the weather. Seniors discount applies. It took a while to find the pods but once located stayed with them for good viewing for everyone. Lake cruise going out & back was a bonus.

We had a fantastic morning out with Matt and the crew on 9th July. The crew were friendly and knowledgable, the boat was comfy and clean, and we enjoyed the antics of 2 different dolphin species and a pod of humpback whales. Thoroughly recommended.
