We did the Ocean to Plate Taster and had a great day out. We were looked after by Rod and Sim who knew the boat, the itinerary and the area like the back of their hand. They helped us catch snook, Tommy Ruff, and blue swimmer crab. With Rod taking care of the Razor Fish, which were yummy. They cooked up the food for lunch, on board the boat and not being a full seafood eater myself, everything was delicious! Time near the oyster farm was great, more secluded from the elements with beautiful waters and plenty of wildlife to observe. We enjoyed the boat itself with plenty of space to essily move around, it was clean and has the amenities you need. Thank you to the both of you.

Had a brilliant trip seeing 2 mothers and calves so late in the season was awesome. Also dolphins, sea lions and Elvis the eagle gave us a really enjoyable cruise. Rod was really friendly, knowledgeable and answered all our questions

After COVID cancellation 2 months ago we were lucky to get the last day of the seasons cruise. Owner Rod and his 2 delightful daughters, plus first mate Jia looked after the passengers very well. There was still one Mother and calf in the Bay and we spent a pleasant 30 minutes watching the calf moving back and forth to feed. The Boat was comfortable and roomy. We could go upstairs or onto the bow. Other highlights were the Dolphin pods, seals and Sea eagles. The cliffs had unusual formations and the sea was a range of Beautiful greens and blue. Our Captain Rod had a lot of information about the Whales.We wish this young family and crew all thebest for the next season.

Had a great cruise yesterday - didn’t take long until we saw two whales and their calves in Fowler’s Bay, it was great to see them and so close. We stayed for a long time so had lots of time to see the whales and learn about them. After that we went around the other side of the bay to view the seals and dolphins and saw some spectacular scenery along the cliff face. Lots of knowledge was given to us by the crew and a cup of hot chocolate and biscuits too! Well worth doing if you are in the area. Well done EP cruises on a great experience 👍
