We joined the very friendly professional crew on a whale watching cruise and we weren't disappointed! We saw a mother and calf as well as other whales. The boat was first class and really looked quite new. The best one I have ever been on I would highly recommend going with this boat, over others we saw.

My partner and I enjoyed our morning whale watch tour. The boat was exceptional, comfortable seats and staff always maintaining the cleanliness and OHS standards of the boat throughout the day. I really admired the attentiveness of their customers. We were lucky enough to see dolphins and whales. The information content is fantastic, very informative. A great tour we really... More

We took Mum to look at the whales and had the VIP package. Skipper Adrian and host Rob looked after U.S. It was a great experience. We saw six whales in two locations with the second location having whales that were jumping out of the water and rolling over splashing their pectoral fins. Absolutely awesome. It was a fantastic experience.... More

The Spirit of Migaloo is the name of the sea world whale watching vessel. It cost 3.5 million dollars and has all the luxuries you can Imagine.

3 whales out playing around our boat for the entire time we were out. The boat crew were brilliant, people feeling sick every where but boat crew were so professional and caring, well done Captain Thomas and your crew a reel big tick.

Did an afternoon trip and managed to see 3 whales (including a breach right next to the boat) and a large pod of dolphins. That said with 20,000 whales passing here during the season it is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. You are pretty much guaranteed to see whales and if not, unlike some companies, they will...

Saw many dolphins, whales and sharks, along with many other cute critters!! Got to feed the Dolphins at the show and shake hands/fins too! Great day out, learned a lot about marine life as well. Now that I have children I would love to go back and take them, they would enjoy it so much!

Nice boat, lovely crew with lots of whale action. Very enjoyed but can be a bit rocky in the waves. You can see the shoreline so seasickness change is greatly reduced. We got wonderful closeups of the whales.

What an amazing experience from start to finish. This trip saw us enjoying the company of 5 whales who had us in awe for the whole time. The crew were knowledgeable and entertaining and kept us updated on the whales and their behaviours and I can say it was one of the most amazing experiences we have ever had as... More
