Myself and a few other friends were attended to the session. Though the start location is little bit away from the main road, there are plenty of parking spaces. The team was very friendly and helpful. At every step they explained us with the stuff we didn't know about the sea life. And indeed when you see the bunches of dolphins it's something stunning... but later you gonna see more and more of them dancing and playing in the waters... and the best part was the whale watching.. The staff took tremendous effort to lets us see the best views of the lovely creatures :-)

Oh.. there was a free meal as well and some more stuff you can be purchased. The other most important thing is, the staff didn't rushed and disturb other boats. They always been so ethical and explaining us the need of letting those sea creatures to stay at their own habitats with freedom!

One thing I had on my list of things to see was the whales off the coast in Mirissa.

For a start we were on the boat for over an hour before we went on the search for whales. I’m not sure why this was the case and we watched at least 8 other boats leave before us.

Breakfast was provided together with tea and bottled water. The breakfast was average with fruit, dry cake and stale bread. This was disappointing especially after paying $115 AUD for 1 adult and 2 children.

Nonetheless we did get the opportunity to see a few whales and a couple of dolphins from afar and this was a beautiful experience.

Boat broke down half way out to the whales, left stranded swaying in the waves for an hour. Everyone around us was vomiting. We eventually were towed back to the bay, no whales, no food, just an upset stomach. Was told I would get a full refund and be able to go for free the following day, turned up early in the morning and was asked to pay full price again, didn't have the cash on us so weren't allowed on the boat. Wouldn't give us a discount, and when we argued and said we were told we could go for free he just walked away. We also wasted a whole other day waiting so we could do it again, awful to deal with, would've been happy to go with the same company despite the last attempt yet were so useless and rude. Pick a different company.

I'm really sorry for the inconvenience that you have experienced. But now the management system has changed and all the weaknesses have corrected. However once again I must pardon you for the bad experience you got and thank you very much for joining with us.

2.5hr activity for whale watching.
They put a lot of effort in the spotting of blue whale.
We were also able to watch the whale.
Also one more point to note that even though the sea was choppy but the driver was an expert.They also provide complimentary breakfast and also free wifi😀.Highly recommended

Tons of dolphins swimming near my boat, it’s hard not to get any close-up pictures of them. Plus, the staff’d ask you to come upfront whenever there’s a whale.

Can't say enough good things about this company. First off, if you think you may be sick, take something before getting on board. Especially if you have young children. Everyone is offered an nausea pill when seated. As well as life jackets for all. Then they come around with tea or coffee. They serve a breakfast of sandwiches, butter cake, and a banana. They also come around with an energy drink. Before getting back they come around with assorted fresh fruit. Staff is very aware of all passengers and are ready to help (if not feeling well. There is an option of sitting up or down. They help you to the front of the boat when a sighting is made. They also accommodate the people that don't feel comfortable moving around on the boat by passing whales on the side you are on so that you can get your pictures. A very professional company. Thank you so much!
