I had been looking forward to going whale watching for years, made the mistake of buying 2 vouchers from Cudo and booking wiith Oz Whale Watching. Being the end of season meant not getting to go when it suited me but rather when they had space. Told to be at the warf by 7.45am. for the breakfast cruise, they didn't turn up until 8 am and we didn't leave the dock until 8.15am. Breakfast was very basic. Headed out of the harbour straight into a strong southerly, people throwing up everywhere. This southerly was predicted days before, why we didn't head north into calm waters makes me think the crew were just looking for a way to make this 4 hour cruise into a 2 hour disaster. Had we headed north, we would have encounted the much calmer waters heading south later as the southerly winds died down. We didn't get to see any whales, but we were not offered a return trip as advertisd on Oz Whale Watching website. Infact, they hung up on me when I suggested that a return trip next seson should be offered. I was told that no return trip was given to people who had paid a discout price. When I said that it wasn't stated on their website, I was told that it wsn't not stated!!!!! Since we were only taken out for 2 hours instead of the 4 hours advertised, I think that qualifies for paying top dollar. The crew were absolutely pathetic, didn't even go to help the lady that fell and couldn't get up because of the rough swell. DO NOT BOOK A TRIP WITH THESE POPLE. Spend the time to review other companies and go with a reputable company, even if it means you pay a bit more.
