Fantastic views of 3 humpback whales interacting with up to 50 Bottle-nosed dolphins within a 3 hour tour. Helped by gorgeous weather and our knowledgeable guide Justin. Unforgettable once in a lifetime experience!

Friendly staff. Handled Covid restrictions well. Luckily saw whales !!!!!!!only problem Not allowed hot drink outside of the Heads - maybe a cup with a sealed lid would solve that one. Apart from that an enjoyable trip. Look out for specials and discounts as full price was maybe a little high.

Absolutely loved this! Right from the start the staff were lovely, very friendly and helpful. Bit of a rough sea but again the guys kept us informed and safe. We hardly got it of the Heads when we spotted whales. Absolutely fascinating! We saw so many whales and the mothers are so protective of their calves. The finale was a young juvenile just breaching for about 40 minutes non stop. We lived it. Very clean safe boat and really great value for money. None of my photos do justice to the spectacle of the young whale and mother breaching!

We booked the 2 hr whale watching tour. The boat was clean and the staff was welcoming. We saw 2 pairs of mother and calf Humpback whales..Kids do feel sea sickness sometimes..But the boats are equipped with sickness bags and tablets. Overall a great tour.. Really enjoyed it
