Fantastic day out, lots of whales. Well organised, friendly crew. Good morning and afternoon tea, delicious lunch. Children well catered for, great family day. Great information regarding the whales, close up encounters. Would recommend to everyone.

Lynn W September 2020

Fabulous full day tour. Exceptional in every aspect. Highly recommended. The boat was clean and safe, skipper had a great sense of humour as well as a thorough knowledge of whales and the area. The girls were friendly and attentive to the needs of every one. Food provided was great.

Joanne M October 2019

What a fantastic day - saw a few different whales throughout the day. Crew were brilliant and very knowledgeable. Lunch was great too.

Peter S September 2019

The boat is an ideal viewing platform and the crew go out of their way to make the trip a good one. The skipper's commentary is full of information and the deckies are all-round good helpers. The food was first rate too. It was so good I went for two days and was not disappointed, with plenty of action and sightings on both occasions. Highly recommended.

This was a great trip. We saw some many whales, tail slaps, breaching. The boat was just the right size, they take a max of about 48. You have plenty of room to move about and everybody could see the action. The crew were very knowledgeable and friendly. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. I can't recommend it enough.

West D September 2017

Absolutely wonderful experience, saw so many up close whales interested in swimming around the boat. Keith and the team were marvellous, they were informative and knowledgeable. We had some lovely tasty treats and lunch was to die for, the food was amazing. We can't wait to return.

Benjamin M August 2017

This trip was amazing. We must have seen 40-50 different whales total in the trip. This included ones breaching, coming close to check out the boat, some popping their head straight up out of the water, and even a mother/calf together. While this can't be guaranteed they are wild animals, the crew and boat were first class. The food and drinks were plentiful and very good. The crew was knowledgeable and very helpful. Finally, it is a beautiful boat that I'd recommend to anyone.

Graham M August 2017

Trip was amazing. We saw so many whales!

Marcus H August 2017

What an amazing day. I couldn't recommend highly enough and the additional time spent on the water ensured that we never felt rushed and could soak up the whole experience.

Gary H August 2017

Whales came right up to boat. Saw many many whales and dolphins. Great day. Great crew. Good food. Small group on boat made it very enjoyable.

Jim A September 2016

This tour was fantastic
The operator and his team running the boat were fantastic and would have to rate one of the best whale watch tours to go on
