A great day with my mum, one and three year old. We took activity packs for the kids to keep them busy and they were able to play at the table. Both kids were free and they loved every minute!! So glad we took them. Great commentary and whales galore. The crew had so much enthusiasm for whales and helped... More

We had a great time going out ti see a few small pods if juvenile humpback whales. Got some wonderful photos of their flukes. Lunch was good - might be good to have some non fish / seafood options in addition to what is offered. Another suggestion would be to offer or have the ability to get sea sickness tablets... More

We have now been on this trip three times, and have thoroughly enjoyed it each time. On our last two trips we took Family who were visiting from overseas and they also found it excellent. Each time we saw plenty of whales breaching and playing and got some good photos. Each time the food was excellent, the staff competent and... More

Okay, My partner and I have done a number of Whale and Dolphin watches in the last few years but we had never seen Humpbacks so we were determined to try and see some. I think this was probably the best choice for doing so from what was available, but we were a little disappointed in a couple of ways.... More

It was amazing as I'm on a strict gluten free diet and they not only had everything gluten free but provided a special cake in a special container maked gluten free in fancy silver writing. I felt very priveleged. Of course the fact that they knew exactly where the many whales would be along with the informative running commentary was... More

This has to be the best for whale watchers, the skipper is so so good and will go out of her way to provide the best whale watching experience possible. The boat is a great platform, the crew is brill, the food is better than expected. This is a tourist must, just make it the right time of year when... More

Maybe my expectations are a little too high as I wasn't overwhelmed by the tour and the viewing of the whales. Yes there were whales but generally they were just quietly hovering at the water level and swimming away from the boat so it definitely wasn't up close and personal. The one time a whale came close to the boat... More

Lovely day and great weather and not too bumpy. Everything was provided including seasick tablets and lunch if you wanted it. AND WHALES!! We saw 10 or 15 different whales - mothers and babies only weeks old. They came so close and stuck around sticky breaking at us just as we were watching them. They swam backwards and forwards under... More
