My 4 y/o son and i booked on a tour for something different and boy was i suprised!! Not only was the vessel extremely large... It was so luxurious and very well maintained. It was my first time on a boat and wouldnt you beleive it... I got seasick!! But the crew were amazing!! Looking after me and making sure i constintly had an empty bag in front of me. And i would like to say a HUGE thank you to Carlee who took my son out on deck to see the mother and calf humpback whales when i couldnt. Apart from beibg sick... The sights were amazing, we saw dolphins and humpback whales and the price was worth the experience! I got prices from a few places and found Seaworld was the best and i can honesly say so was the experience!!! Definatly something to do again!!! THANK YOU TO THE WONDERFUL STAFF AND CREW... KEEP UP THE FANTASTIC SERVICE!!!

Absolutely FANTASTIC! It's not cheap to go on a whale watching tour, but it was great fun for the family. The crew were very professional (though boarding the boat could be better managed as the crowd didn't line up!) and we spotted many whales and dolphins on this trip!
Two Thumbs up! Make sure you go during the whale watching season.

We were there in sept with our 3 kids aged 4,8 and 9. We bought the combo package with sea world and it was a gd deal. The tour was informative and professionally presented. The whales were sighted very shortly into the tour and it was awesomely amazing as we saw three humpbacks together. After the half day whale watching we had other plans so we utilized the sea world pass the next day. The reception at the Seaworld whale watch was superb. My kids left behind a water bottle and cap, and they were quick to email me that I could collect it anytime. The staff were attentive as I have no idea how they know the items belong to my kids being a cruise with a substantial number of tourists. The crew on board were very friendly, our family was the last to board the cruise as we were lost and they waited patiently for us and were very understanding to our difficulties. It was an unforgettable trip for my family!

We went on the afternoon whale watch trip on Fathers Day. It was the most incredible experience. All staff from the initial phone call, to check in, to those on the boat were friendly professional and knowledgeable. We saw many whales and the boat was huge and gave everyone room to view these magnificent creatures. I have been on another company's cruise a few years ago and it does not even remotely compare to what Sea World Whale Watch offer.
The seas were rough but the boat large and stable and sea sickness tablets on offer if you wish.
We saw a turtle, several groups of whales very close to the boat and on the way home a whale breached over and over again. Totally exhilarating experience ! Had a coffee and cake at the venue afterwards and that was lovely too. Only negative is parking at Sea World very limited at the time the cruise goes so can be stressful.

I have attempted whale watching tours before with limited success. This one comes with a guarantee...no whales gives you a full refund.
I was not dissappointed, the stars of the show came out to play. The humpback whales were amazing.
Our trip began with a very informative large screen presentation followed by continuing narrative and directions from the great experienced and friendly staff. I particularly enjoyed listening to the 'whale-song' heard from the underwater microphone.
I would suggest that people accept the offer of Ginger tablets for motion sensitivity. Once out on the open water the swell can be challenging (Staff are very supportive for those who struggle)
The complimentary pick-up service is a bonus for visitors.

Thank you for posting your photos and letting us know how much you enjoyed the experience. It's always special when we can place our hydrophone in the water and hear the whales sing.
