Went out on the whale watching cruise. Seen a beautiful pair of whales and dolphins that stayed and played around the boat for ages. Got some amazing photos and videos. Staff were very informative and helpful. The boat was very modern and comfy. An awesome way to spend a few hours!

We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise. The boat was only a year old and had excellent seating and viewing. The commentary from Julie was informative and she had a lovely manner that was very easy to listen to. We saw many whales, some of them close up. Added bonus was the viewing of pods of dolphins in the channel as we... More

What an incredible experience! We travelled to Forster hoping to see some whales on their migration north and we were not disappointed. First of all, the Amaroo is quite a large vessel, it's well equipped and looks almost new. The crew of the Amaroo were very friendly, safety conscious and also very knowledgeable and informative about the surrounding area and... More

A flat sea, a warm breeze, a shiny new boat and a very informative and friendly crew. What else could one want? Whales, you want whales too? Well we saw a few but most didn't want to play so they were all fairly long distance views but they were there. Matt and Shane worked hard to find one that wasn't... More

From the lakes to the sea, Dolphins and whales aplenty. Julie and Matt share their extensive knowledge of the area with all aboard. Very informative. The Amaroo is a beautiful boat, the ride is smooth and powerful. The staff are 1st class. As they say " Do your self a favour" and don't miss this experience. Thank you for a... More

Had chance yesterday to go whale watching with some young friends visiting from Canada. Never been whale watching before, we were all amazed with our good fortune to be "entertained" by a pod of 3 very active Humpbacks who seemed to treat the Amaroo 2 as a play thing! Breaching alongside and diving under the boat! A truly amazing and... More
