“Whales a plenty!”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

What a great experience. Our morning whale watch couldn't have been better as we saw lots of whales and the skipper did a great job keeping the boat close enough so that we had great views. At one point, two whales swam right by the stern of the boat and surfaced not too far behind. You really appreciate their size when you see them only 10 meters away! The staff were friendly and our on-board marine biologist kept up a great commentary and was very good at getting us to look in the right spots so that we didn't miss any amazing humpback hijinx. Our kids loved it as did we.

“Excellent In Every Way”
Reviewed August 17, 2011

After experiencing a cruise with Coolangatta Whale Watch, I have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. Tony and Carol are very professional in their approach and take no chances with safety. Carol was very informative and funny with her commentary. She also told everyone to concentrate very hard on the possibility of a whale breaching for us. No sooner had she said the words and sure enough a whale breached for us about 50 metres from the boat. She truly is the "Whale Woman"
