“very friendly but proffesional crew”
Reviewed September 16, 2013

The only bad thing I can say was the bus pickup, auto door didn't work, neither did the handbrake which we unfortunately found out while the driver was in hotel picking up others.Also he could have been a bit more friendlier. Apart from that an exceptional day out. We were taken right down to the beach, greeted by the very friendly bubbly Stephanie, not a long wait before Skipper Cameron came to pick us up in Sealegs a boat with wheels to go on the beach, no need to get wet. When we arrived out on the boat we were helped on board by the crew, and met Belinda another of the crew a little more shy at first, on our way out we were given nibblies, and drinks altho not alchoholic you could take your own and they kept them in the fridge for you, no trouble to get them out for you when needed. The nibblies and drinks were available all day, I loved the way the crew found the whales but didn't annoy them just stayed back but close enough for photo opportunity. We also seen sea snakes and a turtle. A baby an her mother the baby being only 3 days old. The crew answered any questions anyone had but there were few as the crew were very informative the whole day Also we had some young ones on deck, whom got a little board after a while as it is a 4 hour cruise, but the girls had activities for them an sat with them to do the activities. The girls made you feel very special and came to visit and chat with everyone on board and not just a quick hello how are you going it was with interest and stayed for a while with each guest. Skipper Cameron also came down with an echo sounder so we got to listen to them while watching them. It was a fantastic tour and will recommend it to all I see, reasonably priced for a 4 hour tour with drinks and snacks.

“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We had a trip with Cameron, Stephanie and Belinda on the 30th August. Within about 10 minutes of being out, we saw the first lot of whales and it didn't really stop after that. We saw quite a few pods of mum, nanny and baby and some couples as well. Cameron was great, he didn't chase the whales but waited for them to come to us.
Great value for money, a whole afternoon on the ocean. Great nibbles, Stephanie and Belinda made sure everyone was given attention and never needed for anything.
Sunset on the way home was an added bonus.
Would definitely recommend this trip for anyone going to Broome!

“Well worth it”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Cameron and Stephanie were welcoming and knew so much about the whales. Really happy that they didn't chase after mothers and calves who weren't interested in hanging around the boat. We had a great day and would definitely book their boat for another trip out.

“Fantastic day out off Broome.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had a wonderful Day of whale watching on Trade Winds... The Boat is exceptionally clean and stable. The Crew are very Friendly with a good knowledge of Whales. We saw heaps of whales, which came incredibly close to the boat even though we had pulled up a good distance from them. Saw females suckling their young and males Breaching. There were too man whales to Count. Cameron the Skipper made us feel safe, informed and entertained. The trip is good value finishing with a beautiful sunset on the water... Do it.
