This trip is a must-do when you visit Victor Harbor. Dan's commentary is informative and interesting. The duck is a great way to see the wildlife on the outlying islands - including the birds at the conservation post, the seal colony, and the pods and pods of dolphins! Unfortunately no whales on the day we visited but the sun was... More

Dan was a good and very friendly guide and gave us enough time. The whole trip was just amazing seein the seals so close, seeing the beautiful coastline.... More

Unfortunately we didn't see any whales, but we saw lots of dolphins and pods of 10-20. The commentary was very informative, with a route around the islands where we saw seals and bird life. Rug up though, especially in the cooler months because it was very cold.

We had a great tour with Dan, he had a vast range of knowledge both historical and current. It was a great trip, saw things you would rarely see from the main land - seals and dolphins. Definitely want to do it again during whale season! Absolutely worth the money and time! Thanks Dan!

Well organised, easy to book on line, great value for money, extremely informative and above all, fun! Dan is the man, very well spoken, knowledgable and a great person. If you want to get up close and personal with Sea... More

We had a great time today with Dan our tour guide. We were lucky enough to have the boat to ourselves and the weather was great. Dan was excellent and has an amazing knowledge of the local area. We didn't see any dolphins or whales but saw loads of seals who were fun and interactive and we really would recommend... More

The operators were helpful and very flexible with our request and we were not disappointed! It was and exciting ride with a little bit of wave action and plenty of wildlife was spotted. Can highly recommend the trip to Waipinga Cliffs – it a thrilling boat ride amongst beautiful South Australian scenery with a competent and knowledgeable local driver/guide.
