The staff were extremely knowledgeable about the whales and their behaviour. They did everything possible to ensure we had some good whale encounters without stressing the whales. We didn’t mind, given the lateness in the season, that we had to go a bit further out to find them.

Great service, nice boat and the captain made an effort to make sure we got some great viewing of the whales, despite it being end of the season.

A fantastic half day morning cruise with this small Hervey Bay family business. Nothing was a trouble to the boys & girls. Funny & witty, it was effortless to see their passion shine through for what they do for us their clientele. If you are planning to do a whale watch cruise you can't go past these guys. They may not have the biggest vessel but in this case, size certainly doesn't matter! Bigger doesn't always make for a better experience as this small family business demonstrates. They punch above their weight. Queensland, you're good to go!

We had an amazing time on the Quick cat, the staff were lovely and the boat was clean and allowed plenty of space for everyone on board. They made a big effort to make sure we got our monies worth of whale watching and were very knowledgeable about the area and whales. We learnt a lot about the whales and it was all very interesting. Will be back again!
