This tour company is fantastic. Super friendly and informative. Our group was the only boat for miles and miles. Absolutely amazing to be along side the whales, breaching, tales and water spouts. I would most certainly take a boat ride with this crew again

Having booked this trip from the UK, I was amazed to find I could see whales from our apartment balcony in Tweed, but it was really worth going out and getting close. We saw whales, dolphins, a large ray, loved the beautiful flying fish. Adriana...More

Without doubt the best day we had on the Coast! Plenty of whale sightings with a breach just 30m of the stern of the boat and a pod swam directly at us and under the boat. Also saw dolphins and lots of flying fish. Staff...More
