This was our splurge trip for Victor Habor. The day we went out was very windy with very rough seas, but Oh what a ride! 2 mt waves coming right at ya! "Mum, this is the best ever roller coaster!" We got totally drenched despite the waterproof gear. Saw several pods of dolphins, plus seals & sea lions with pups.... More

had a great time on the tour today. Just the 2 of us, with a boat load of great folk from littleuns, to older folk. Very choppy conditions, but handled like a pro. Saw seals, and tons of Dolphins. It was simply awesome. We had a fantastic time, and would highly recommend. It was 42 degrees, but there was a... More

Went on the Big Duck Boat Tour yesterday and had a great time. Suitable for all ages. The crew were very helpful and pleasant. Went out to Seal island and saw several seals sunning themselves. Then we cruised along the coastline to the Bluff looking for dolphins - but didn't see any, still we had a great time. The explanations... More

A group of seven of us went on this great attraction! It was a lot of fun and you will get to see some great sea life. Highly recommended.

I think for $35 you get a great half hour water tour that is fun. We saw dolphins and seals and had an exciting ride on the waves. Took grandma and young kids, who got on and off Duck ok.

Great place to see some of the wild life in their natural surroundings. Not only did we see the Sea Lions and NZ Fur Seals, but (for the first time) we saw the bottle-nosed dolphins merrily swimming and jumping around in their natural habitat. The crew also did not hurry things up (like typical tourist attractions do normally), but spent... More

I went on the Wildlife & Sightseeing Tour where we approached some of the small islands off Victor Harbor and saw sea lions and fur seals lazing on rocks and swimming. We came across a pod of a dozen or bottle-nose dolphins that swam around and under our boat as we stopped to watch. We enjoyed the coastal scenery past... More

Had a great tour. Loved every minute of it. Dan and Bec were great guides. The seals and dolphins were great to watch. Want to go on another tour with them soon. Thank you so much for a wonderful experience.

We had the most beautiful couple of hours, scooting across the water, round the islands, along the coastline with a very capable, competent and polite 'captain'. I can't speak highly enough about the comfort of the boat and the content of the trip. Though we weren't' lucky enough to see whales, there was abundant wildlife to enjoy. Seals, seal loins,...

The Big Duck Boat tour is an invigorating experience on an expedition-style rigid inflatable boat. After departing from the Granite Island Causeway, the cruise took us to Seal Rock where lots of seals were basking in the sun. We also saw dolphins and lots of seabirds, but no whales (unfortunately). No motion sickness (my child's usually quite prone, but felt... More
