Nice day out but no whales…😂😂

The staff were great, it was a nice flat day, perfect conditions for whale watching but no one told the whales. The crew were very good at filling in the time but you could hear the disappointment in their voice that they couldn’t deliver. But I would & will go out them them again 100%

Great experience, crew were fantastic. It was a lovely few hours out on the ocean. We saw a pod of whales to the right of the boat and a mum, baby and support whale on the left. Small boat with great view for everyone. You do get a bit wet at the rear but they provide weather proof jackets. Would have been a good idea to take binoculars as the whales were about 100 metres away

Fantastic tour!

Amazing experience with friendly and knowledgeable crew. Saw multiple humpback whale mother and calves. Appreciated the respect the crew members gave to the whales - we got close enough for beautiful views but kept a good distance that the whales were comfortable enough to swim towards us.

No whales but still enjoyable

Didn't see any whales Enjoyed the boat. Small number of people and enjoy the inflatable experience would have been 5 stars if there was a whale sighting.
