We had such a great time on this cruise - the staff were great, even with so many people being sick (TAKE SEASICKNESS MEDICATION, EVEN IF YOUVE NEVER BEEN SEASICK BEFORE. There's a lot of waiting around for the whales to surface and if it's choppy, it will get to you! Also think about not feeding your kid a large piece of cake RIGHT AS the skipper is telling you not to go hard on the coffee as there is choppy water where we're going - then acting surprised when he vomits all over the chairs downstairs.) apart from all the people ignoring the staffs directions to spew in bags provided and instead putting all of the toilets inboard out of order, this cruise was fantastic. We saw so many whales, babies, mothers, breaching whales, all of it.
The boat was large and roomy, we hardly had to hustle with other people of photos. Sometimes the staff member with the microphone was too busy taking photos to tell us about whales breaching until after it had happened, but if you watched out yourself you can catch heaps of action. Great value too, as we got an online deal. Our cruise went from 10am -1pm. Top is the best for viewing, though front deck is nice too (after you get out to sea it opens up).
Free drink for spotting a whale, which we did but didn't claim - should have taken the late tour!
