We chose Sea World Whale watching for a few reasons and we are glad we did. Firstly we have been on a cruise with these guys a few years before and had a great experience and secondly, we are very choosy as to the environmental aspects of operators. This trip was exceptional from the moment we walked into the building... More

The only whale watching operator in GC which conducts its whale watching business from a catamaran. So its safe, comfortable and spacious. And because they limit the number of passengers on board, you don't have a crowd on board trying to squeeze for a place to catch a glimpse of the whales. The only thing is that they have 1... More

I must say the staff were exceptional from walking up to the counter to book our 4 tickets to getting on the boat and then finding the whales, the young lady I think her name is Grace on the microphone for the whole trip was nothing short of brilliant in her commentary. The whole crew was extremely friendly and very... More

All I can say this is 5 star the service you are offered on board is better than most 5 star hotels. The staff all genuinely care about every single person. The seating so comfortable. The knowledge of the staff great and very informative. We saw two whales and hot up really close and was amazing experience

A very professional trip. The staff gave lots of valuable information right from check in and including throughout the trip. Take a hat, sunscreen, camera and a warm jacket or jumper. I took sea sickness tablets too. The boat was very clean and looked new. The staff on board were excellent, they were very informative and helpful. We saw two... More

This was the first time I have ever been on a whale watching boat and I wanted to get back on again! This trip was incredible - we saw several breaching whales, pods of dolphins, huge turtles, and flying fish. The girls on board were extremely knowledgable and always had everyone's safety and comfort in mind. This was a mind-blowing... More

This is a professionally run outfit on a boat that is in immaculate condition. Make sure you book in advance as it is extremely popular and be aware that there are two types of tickets. One that includes entry to Seaworld for only a few dollars more. And you can use that on another day, it doesn't have to be... More
