    Great experience in seeing whales (mother and calve) in there nature habitat. The trip was great value for money, well organized, crew were very friendly and the boat was spacious.

    Epic afternoon... the waves were choppy so made for a more exciting ride. So much fun, my face was sore from laughing so much. Like being on a roller coaster for two hours. Saw three whales at the end which was great but thoroughly enjoyed it even if we didn't spot any! Would recommend anyone to do it... one of the best experiences you'll do in Sydney.

    My main reason for writing in is to say a massive thank you to our tour guide, Cheeks. He is hilarious, chats with everyone and is genuinely just such a joy to be around... even at 7am. He was amazing, give the man a raise.
    As for the trip, Port Stephens is beautiful. Sand boarding is an experience you'll never forget (mainly because, being English, you'll never have seen so much sand in your life).
    My advice for people thinking of going on this trip? Do it! And take a swimming costume and get in the boom net while on the dolphin boat cruise.

    I had a fantastic 4 hours Whale Watching Cruise on 29/10/2021, on board of Jerry Bailey ship.
    The whole process from checkin, lunch, commentary and disembarking was flowless and very welcoming.
    Clarissa and her team was very friendly, looking after elderly passengers and always with the smile.
    The boat was very safe with experienced Skipper, who navigate it us exactly to the spots , where we could see the numerous whales frolicking in the waters and some spectacular breeches as well.
