On the wY back dolphins joined us as did albatrosses and other birds. An OK lunch back on land then... More

There's probably good reason for this cruise being so highly acclaimed and winning tourism awards year after year. I thought this would be overrated and overpriced but I ended up really enjoying myself on this cruise. Essentially a fairly small and agile speed boat + lots of fun turns + great scenery + dolphins, seals and sea birds. The dolphin... More

Title says it all . Great boat, small numbers and a crew who enjoyed what they did and let it show. both on land and on the water. We were blessed with excellent weather. but regardless the trip would have been an experience to remember

Fantastic tour! Fairly priced possibly even underpriced. Recommended to me prior by a former local, I pre-booked several weeks prior and am glad I did as it seemed quite busy and I have heard they do book out. The weather was perfect, while most people rugged up my partner braved it in a singlet, spray jackets were provided but water... More

views are lovely but subject to weather; sea can be very rough and makes the trip unpleasant and disappointing.

Not the cheapest excursion at $195 per head, and we did have second thoughts, but fortunately we made the right decision and booked a day cruise. And what a day it was, citing and interesting from the introduction to the days events before boarding the bus, till the very end when we returned. Unlike some tour operators who only offer... More

The crew are great in knowledge of the area, the bird,fish and animal life, the history and getting their message across in a humorous way. The boats are comfortable with everyone getting plenty of chances to take photographs. The landscape is spectacular- whilst the trip is expensive it is well worth it - a must see if you are on...
