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

I've always wanted to see whales but hadn't realised that they were an attraction of the Forster Tuncurry area- we were so thrilled when friends with whom we were staying on holiday had booked us all in for a trip. The weather was beautiful - in fact the trip was planned for the following day but the Amaroo staff had... More

We went on the Amaroo Whale Watching cruise at Forster and had the most amazing time. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the boat was first class, clean and a smooth ride for the waves we came across. We had a great time seeing the whales and dolphins & the kids had a ball. I highly recommend this to... More

We went out on 7th July 2015 loved every minute (even the life jacket game lol). With a guarantee of seeing Whales you can't go wrong. We did and we loved them. Going again when the Southern migration is on to see the babies (if we don't weaken and go out again for the Northern run). How could you not... More

Went out this morning. They found a large pod of at least 8 humpbacks very quickly. We followed them and they came so close to the boat of their own accord. It was amazing. On the way back we found a huge pod of common dolphins...I'm talking maybe 100+! They played around the boat, particularly when it picked up speed......jumping... More
