Fabulous morning whale watching !!!

Wow these guys are sooo professional and knowledgeable, they knew all the things we wanted to know about the whales. They were friendly and nothing was to much trouble. We went out they soon found where the whales were kept a proper distance away whilst switching the engine off and letting us all enjoy these beautiful mammals. Then started up again and went to another area all up we say 4 close up and about 13 in total.

Whale Watching

Great informative staff. Really managed to get into the thick of the whales whereby they showed us everything that they do in the wild. (that's the whales not the staff) Even privy to the Sea world and Spirit boat ushering a calf and mother back out to sea.

Great trip

What a great trip! We saw 5 whales, including a mother and calf. We were very lucky that two whales were curious about the boat and swam underneath us and came very close of their own accord. I felt the boat kept a respectful distance whenever possible (unless the whales approach us obviously!). Commentary was great, very enthusiastic and fun. Coming back we saw a pod of dolphins and a sea turtle as well which was a great bonus. The boat did feel a little full to me (not safety wise, just enjoyment wise) and sometimes it was hard to see the whales due to people crowding in one spot. Overall we really enjoyed our trip though.
