Starts with a cruise on Wallis Lake leading out through the headlands. The crew were friendly and extremely helpful. We saw many many whales close to the boat and viewing for everyone was good. An excellent trip which I highly recommend.

Very good crew. Commentary is interesting and not corny. Whale spotters increase the chances of seeing whales from the Amaroo. Highly recommended.
