Harbourcat - fantastic!

Beautiful day on the water - First Whalewatching tour with Harbourcat (have been on others in Sydney) Communication by Skipper Colin prior to Tour was great - actual day was brilliant, although the sightings of whales were brief we were all able to get a decent view due to the layout of the boat. Colin was very knowledgeable and happy to answer our questions - we were all encouraged to actively be looking so felt this was 'our tour'. An awesome tour with an added bonus of many dolphins swimming alongside us on the way - if you are after an added bonus, sit in the front trampoline area - you will not regret it! Thanks Colin and Harbourcat!
