“Wow”
Reviewed July 12, 2013

On a recent trip to the Port Stephens area my family went on a 3 hour whale watch cruise with Imagine. It was fantastic, The boat was great with only small numbers on board (maximum 50 pax) So much more personal than big multi level boats. The crew were really friendly and knowledgeable on the area and whales.I am looking forward to a return trip when the whales make the trip back south with their babies.

“A fun morning”
Reviewed July 3, 2013 via mobile

We booked this trip based on our hotels recommendation. We found the skipper knowledge about whales excellent. He was funny and he found whales. A beautiful day out on the water watching whales and dolphins. Would recommend Imagine Cruises

“Whale watching”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

After 3 earlier cruises elsewhere, on our fourth trip with Imagine Cruises we finally were able to get up close with 4 whales even though other groups had gone out on the day the Imagine skipper was the only one who persisted. Really great trip.

“Amazing dinner cruise”
Reviewed April 26, 2013 via mobile

The twilight dinner cruise was amazing- the staff were so friendly and wanted you to have an awesome time. The boat was nice you didn't feel over crowded as the group was kept relatively small. We LOVED the boom net "hammock" at the front of the boat we could have stayed there all night and it really added to the experience. Dinner was delicious (BBQ seafood) and we really liked that food was plated up instead of a buffet style. The views were breath taking in the bay with the sunset on one side and the moon reflecting on the other. And a small added touch, free use of fleece blankets and jackets, made the trip that much better. Overall amazing and unbelievable value for your money!
