A great trip for all ages. We had an amazing day where the weather was just ideal. Very friendly and informative guide and a humorous captain. The Australian Fur Seals are just beautiful in their natural habitat.

Best seal trip for viewing up close to seals, one-on-one guide for asking questions (not impersonal speaker), maximum 12 passengers, best value. A real highlight of our many holidays to Tasmania. This trip is just great.
