This tour exceeded all expectations. We arrived as a family of 9 (some Aussie, some international), including a senior, an infant, a toddler and two children (8 & 12), we also had varied dietary requirements and English literacy, but we all agreed this was the best and most memorable experience. The highlight was the breathtaking, up close and personal experience with the beautiful whales and their calves, with detailed commentary from the crew. We've been on whale tours in NZ and Patagonia, but this was exceptional. At times, the whales were just a few metres from the boat and wow, they really put on a show! We also enjoyed some kayaking with the kids (even bubs) and loved the tubing. The snorkelling was OK but there wasn't much to see, but playing on the white sand beaches and dunes was fab. Now to the crew- they were knowledgeable, hospitable, friendly and professional. The day ran perfectly, as it was well organised and coordinated, but we never felt rushed. The staff went out of their way to cater to all of our needs and helped everyone so we could simply enjoy and take it all in. They thought of every small detail to make the day extra special such as taking candid photos of our family and sending them to us, providing extra special treats for the vegetarians/vegans and kids, and helping when our toddler was feeling a bit seasick. Honestly, every single crew member was exceptional, brought value to the experience and clearly loved their work, which made this a stand-out tour for us. All of the food was awesome. Truly an unbeatable and memorable day for all ages and we cannot recommend it or thank Tasman Venture enough.
