Sunset cruise was wonderful. Well catered with drinks topped up as you wish. We saw dolphins and experienced smooth sailing out from the Marina before heading back in with great cues of the sunset from all points on the yacht. Definitely value for money.

Had the most amazing day out with Peter and Cassie. They were so knowledgable and helpful during the trip. Got to see so many dolphins and Peter made such to steer the boat towards them. Seeing Dolphins in the wild is a total different feeling. Loved the swim on a remote part

Getting aboard the Blue Dolphin is by far the best way to meet and learn about the whales of Hervey Bay. Pete and the other crew members have a great passion and respect for the animals. Due to the small vessel size, you have a great view of the whales. Pete has a ton of

Thank you for kind review. We do enjoy the whales and love sharing our passion for them with you. A small vessel and low guests numbers is a great way to experience the whales and we strive to ensure everyone enjoys the day. Many thanks, Peter
