Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a wonderful day whale watching, turtle spotting and we we saw some dolphins too. The crew were friendly, helpful and informative. The boat was spacious enough to move around freely and the food offered was freshly prepared on board and tasty. I have recommended this tour to friends and family and I can't wait to go again. What a wonderful way to spend a day. Loved it!

What a great day out, terrific crew, very knowledgeable and helpful, the food was awesome, fresh baked muffins on a rolling boat, pretty amazing.
And then there were the whales, how amazing to see these gorgeous creatures in their natural habitat, we got to see mum and bub frolicking and bub learning to be a whale, having a great time., and that was just one sighting.
Highly recommend this tour.

It was a perfect day! There was 17 whales, dolphins and turtles! The crew was fantastic and shared tons of knowledge about the whales! The potato salad was 5 stars, the pumpkin salad was 5+ stars and they had the best raspberry muffins I’ve ever tasted. I will definitely be back on board soon.

We had an awesome day with the crew on Kalinda. Saw about 19 whales 🐋. We had good weather and certainly can't complain about the food. It was so yummy. Well done chef. I would highly recommend this company for any charter. Maddi the Marine Biologist was very helpful with great knowledge. Thank you all you made it an awesome day to remember.

Had the best day out with Townsville Whale Watching! Saw several mums with their calves and some with their escorts! Also saw a pod of whales tail slapping and fin slapping and heard them expelling air from their blowholes! Just amazing! Also saw a whale breach in the distance! Our crew were friendly and very informative and had Morning and afternoon tea and a scrumptious lunch! Can’t wait to go again next year!

Friendly crew, saw the whales out and about but obviously not so close…would have liked to have spent more time out with the whales vs lunching/anchored. Bring a good zoom for the camera and your sunscreen!

I had the most amazing day on the charter with the guys from Townsville Whale Watching! The water was quite choppy, but that didn’t stop the incredible experience of seeing whales, dolphins and countless sea turtles! The food and service was impeccable, and the love and knowledge the captain has for the ocean and it’s creatures was inspiring! Definitely will be booking again with this company - the staff were friendly, and definitely provided excellent service! 😊 would give 10 stars if I could!

What an amazing day! We were so lucky, a pod of about 7 whales came right up by the boat. The crew were great, very relaxed. Highly recommend.
