Excellent cruise, very polite and helpful staff, the trip was well worth the money. The food at the stop over was very nice, and you are given plenty of time to visit the local shops. Would highly recommend this trip for families of all ages.

We were there in mid September during the mating season and saw no less than 25 or 30 whales that day. Fabulous weather, great experience. The whales were so close to the boat when coming up and "blowing" that you could feel the mist and smell their breath. The staff told us going out that we may or may not... More

What an awesome day. I had booked on for the Sunday morning tour but on ringing to confirm on Saturday was told that there was a severe seasickness warning in place for Sunday. Although I don't get seasick, I decided that it sounded like it would not be the best day for good photos, so swapped to Monday afternoon -... More

We get the Groupon voucher for whale watching with this company and keeping trying for 5 days and the trips are either full or cancelled. Was quite disappointed to be unable to join the tour

Thank SirSeng
SWWhaleWatch, General Manager at Sea World Whale Watch, responded to this review

Hello SIrSeng I am sorry you could not experience a Sea World Whale Watch tour. Unfortunately during the time you had available to go whale watching there was 5 days of high winds and rough seas that made it unsafe to conduct whale watching tours. Whale watching is a wild nature experience so we are at the mercy of the... More

We did this tour in Sept 2015, the staff are lovely and very helpful, the boat very comfortable and well above the others we saw out on the water. Saw whales and dolphins, all in all very impressed and had a great day. Best value is for the seaworld and whale watching pass to get a decent discount that also... More
