Incredible experience to share with your family! We booked our whale watching adventure with out of the blue adventures after doing quite some research on other local whale watching companies. It was an easy choice with “out of the blues” 5 star rating which didn’t prove to disappoint! We had the BEST day and actually can’t wait to go again for this seasons whale watching.

Best whale watching tour in the Byron shire (and probably in the whole of NSW). Can't recommend this more highly - the staff go out of their way to make sure you have the best possible experience with the whales. The skippers are super experienced, putting you in the best location to view the whales (making sure the whales are also safe and not disturbed) and the onboard marine biologist is super knowledgable which adds so much to the trip. The opportunity to see these incredible creatures in the wild is so special, especially while being able to learn more about them. Can't wait to get back out there!

My wife and I had the most splendid day. We arrived at the boat and were greeted by the very handsome captain Dean. The weather was a little rough but we were never worried in the very safe and comfortable boat. The captain really knew how to handle the big boat through the bar. Once we were out in the ocean we were soon greeted by a beautiful bunch of whales, woooowweeee did it take our breath away. Such majestic creatures, their beauty and elegance is something to see. One of the large mammal breached and nearly jumped over the boat, absolutely amazing. Unfortunately after an amazing few hours we returned safely through the bar guided by the expert captain. We said thank you to the very knowledgeable staff and returned back to our accommodation with such a vibrating excitement of what we had experienced. We can not recommend this trip enough. I’ve already booked again. 10/10 we had a “whale of a time” Thank you.

Absolutely blown away by our experience with Out of the Blue Whale Watching. We had the most incredible day. The staff and the captain were extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly! And the whales! Wow! It was so amazing seeing them breaching and swimming so close. Very, very happy with our tour. Couldn't fault these guys! Highly recommend and would definitely book in again.
