We had an awesome day on the cruise with BBQ. The crew are friendly, approachable and very good at getting their jobs done with no fuss. It’s obviously a professionally run business and the crew make what they are doing look effortless. We loved the trip over and back and the food was fresh and refreshing. We were pleased with what was on offer and the portions were good sizes. The beach itself is immaculate and the water was beautiful but we couldn’t go past the ride on the tube... go hard or go home!! Would definitely go again and also recommend to everyone for either groups or couples or families. We can’t wait for whale season to book a trip with them again.

We hired whole cruise for our group and staff was amazing by all means. We had special food requirements which also has been taken care. We all enjoyed it more than we expected.

We had the most amazing time! My daughter (six) and I decided to go last minute and boy are we glad we did! Kayaking, biscuit, sandcastle building, cricket, swimming - everything you need for a perfect day including seats and shade gazebos. The food was simple but great - you do get a prawn (singular) but after a big morning of non stop fun, you’re just happy to have lunch served and a full belly! Shout out to the incredible staff - fun, friendly and accomodating, nothing was too hard to arrange and all staff were only too happy to answer my questions. We will do this again and again - worth every penny and many memories were made! Thank you Whalesong tours for one of our most favourite days to date!
