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.

Would defintely recommend this tour operator. The team were friendly very helpful and had a lovely experience with the family on the water. Pity we didn't see too many dolphins but can't predict the currents and had a 50 metre restriction.

Had an amazing experience with AOC. We only did the half day but we saw whales on the way out and then caught amazing fish (which they were nice enough to package so we could take it back to Perth). Between the two of us we caught about 8 fish including an amazing coral trout. The crew were attentive and the vessel was great.

Highly recommended.

After more than a decade as others have come and gone AOC still does it best.
A great well equipped boat and a very helpful and friendly crew that work hard to get you onto the fish.
I returned to our accomodation with a bag full of snapper/ emperor/ Spanish flag fillets that meant we could eat truly fresh fish for the rest of our stay - again!
Add in a few breaching whales and a couple of cool drinks and it is a wonderful day out.

We had a wonderful time cruising out to watch the beautiful whales. Our crew were so friendly and helpful, right from the beach where we were picked up until they dropped us back again at 6.
Amy our marine biologist was knowledgeable and happy to answer many questions.
We got great sightings of some amazing humpbacks.
The food was plentiful too.

We had a wonderful afternoon with a fantastic crew. Well catered, Amy gave informative talk on the whales and the captain made sure we didn't miss out. The team really gave us an excellent experience with the sunset cruise.
Thankyou from us all

The sunset whale watching tour was insanely good on this particular day. Several whales breaching, including a very active calf, informative commentary by the team.
Plus the wonderful colours of the Broome shore and ocean, it was stunning.
10/10.
