We had a wonderful afternoon whales watching. We were late in the season but still managed to see some whales, dolphins and sea snakes. The crew were wonderful and very friendly and the best hosts. Thoroughly recommend this experience

Just to see the whales jumping off the water is a breathtaking experience. Add this to the very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable crew, always on top of making the whole event impecable, delicious canapes, great service, and you get a perfect afternoon out in the ocean. Though we went when the whale season was coming to an end, we still managed to see a few blowing and jumping around. We even got to hear their call through a "water microphone". Goosebumps all the way. Thanks for this!

Took us a long coupla hours to find whales but when we did, wow. We had two bulls doing a ridiculous number of pec slaps, even tail slaps and breaches. It was spectacular. When the staff are impressed, you know you got your money's worth! Speaking of staff, there was a medical situation which I thought they handled brilliantly. All round great arvo despite trying not to hurl from sea sickness

A magical trip from start to finish. All eyes were on the horizon to spot for whales for the first half hour, then shortly after we spotted our first one, not far away. The skipper John then spotted two together, 10 mins later. We followed them, completely in awe of these mighty creatures, just diving and playing in the water, having fun. Shortly after, we saw another 3, but then we “hit the jackpot” and found a mother and baby together. What a beautiful sight. John told us the mum was trying to teach her baby to use its pectoral fin, however he was splashing his tail instead and everyone was laughing saying baby whales are like children, testing the boundaries and being silly. As mum & bub played and frolicked, we moved quietly alongside them for over half and hour. We watched them slap their fins, glide gently in amongst the waves, slap their tails and roll over numerous times. What a privilege it was for all on board to spend so much time with these beautiful, gentle giants. All the crew were friendly and helpful, offering us food & drinks throughout our trip and Johns knowledge of whales was fantastic. We can highly recommend this tour.
