Owner description: Best whale watching in Albany. With the largest and fastest charter vessel operating in the area we can get you to the whales with speed and comfort so you spend more time with the whales not traveling. Sit back in our spacious cabins club lounges, with your friends and family, enjoy quality refreshments. Get those memories that will last a life time. Your enjoyment is paramount to me.

Paul was absolutely amazing. We went on board with 4 small children and nan in wheelchair and the service and facilites well suited for everyone. Paul managed to find southern right whales and countless humpbacks displaying flipper waving, tail slapping, and lots of blowing and spotting of large fins. He also took us to a New Zealand seal colony. Cannot recommend Paul and his boat enough. Thank you for a really memorable trip.

My elderly dad wanted to go on a whale watching tour and this boat was perfect for him. He can be unsteady on his feet but the sure surface of the boat, comfortable seats and easy access added to a great day. ( it has wheelchair access too) a hot cuppa, friendly service, interesting commentary and we saw heaps of whales. The scenery is spectacular. I am a local and really encourage other locals to go and enjoy! Thanks

Such a good day on the Wednesday I couldn't wait to go back the next day. So lucky I did. Then weather was even better and the whales were everywhere. Really special experience. Thinking of going for a third time. Fingers crossed the weather is good. Definately recommend for young and old. Great experience. Thanks to Paul & Eve........

Perfect winters day, cold but sunny, rug up. Excellent boat, plenty of room for everyone to see whales and take photos. Great to have choice of comfortable seating enclosed down below or out the back and on the top deck for an even better view.They are amazing creatures. It is just a wonderful experience seeing Humpbacks up close and they appear so relaxed. The boat powered out and we were there in no time enjoying the whales with a hot cuppa and a muffin. Friendly staff and everyone enjoyed themselves. I would recommend Albany Ocean Adventures to everyone.
