Great trip !

Really enjoyed the cruise. Comfortable ship, good choice of drinks & snacks included in price. Knowledgable guide who is obviously passionate about marine life. We were lucky enough to follow a mother and calf for almost an hour. Highly recommend the Fantasea cruise to all.

Whale watching

We had a wonderful afternoon on Fantasea whale watching cruise. We were lucky enough to follow a couple of seperate groups of humpbacks on their migration up the coast. A drink and snack was much appreciated as part of the price. Crew and marine biologists helped with explanation of the whale's activity and behaviour. Great vantage spots on several floors on board the boat so it didn't feel crowded.
