A perfect day for whale watching. A perfect boat to experience it. Took the 10am cruise. The boat was full but didn't feel overcrowded. We saw several dolphin pods and two beautiful whales. We followed along as the headed south and appeared several times got done great photos. Wonderful, knowledgable and very friendly crew. Highly recommend this adventure.

Whether it was because the timing was perfect with the whales migrating north, combined with perfect weather, I'm not sure, but it was a truly amazing experience for both my son and I. There were whales everywhere around us, both close and far. Spouts of water were visible toward the horizon and pods of three or more whales appeared and... More

The whale watch was done in the morning and after that we went to the Sea World in the afternoon. The ship is big and comfortable. There is a viewing deck at the front and top of the boat. The...

Tickets were easy to buy. When we reached we were immediately shown the board that said "light seasickness conditions" for our trip. Check in was smooth. Boat left on time and all along the way we were given very clear instructions as to what to expect, where we should sit, why we needed to be in our seats at certain... More

What an amazing experience. We are locals but decided to do it in memory of our Belle on the 4th anniversary of her passing. She would have loved it. I can say my son and I loved the experience. The boat is stunning and state of the art. The crew were fantastic and thanks to the Captain who kept us... More

Beautiful boat, skilful Captain, knowledgeable , friendly and helpful crew. We were told it may be a little bumpy but it's a very stable large catamaran, purpose built for whale watching. Slow when it needs to be, around the whales and fast when following a sighting. We got some really great sightings of these beautiful creatures. What we must remember... More

We did the first day of the season and it was awesome. Whales in minutes and one did the tail walk like Michael Jackson. Adrian the skipper and crew awesome. Thanks so much for an experience we will never forget.

Fantastic whale watching outing on board this class above Sea World 3 deck cruise boat. It was very clean, stable & fast. Informative video screening on board as we make our journey out to the waters. However, the sea was rough on that day. Can't escape the sea sickness although I took the pill, Nevertheless, we managed to spot dolphins,... More

SeaWorld Catamaran Cruises are most comfortable and upmarket. You are almost guaranteed to see whales. My experience has varied from having rough seas to a more calm trip. The cover on the top deck is in the shape of a whale tail (to scale). I have always seen whales on each trip I have been on. The staff have always... More
