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.

It was raining which cannot be controlled by the staff. We still enjoyed the cruise and commentary. The staff were very friendly and dealt well with other customers who did not want to listen to the staff members safety advise.

Last cruise of the season. Fabulous afternoon. 9 whales sighted, 2 of them breaching. Seals were fascinating & fun to watch as well. The crew were all great. Would recommend to all.

Seamless operation by the crew and captain. Felt really safe and enjoyed the day aboard their boat. Saw a range of sea life including whales and enjoyed viewing the coastline from the water.

Another fantastic whale cruise with the WCC team at the beautiful Wilson’s Promontory……super weather conditions all day helped us thoroughly enjoy the day. The Captain and crew got us onto whales for nearly the entire cruise. So much so, we stayed out later than scheduled (with everyone’s agreement) as a single juvenile insisted in circling the boat for over 30 mins to play.
We had breaches, tail slapping, muggings and spy hopping…the full Monty. Would totally recommend the cruise and a huge thank you to the crew.

Brilliant tour. Outstanding value and very informative. An absolute "must do" despite the sunburn I was stupid enough to attain!

Our Phillip Island Winter Whale watching tour was a great success. We saw two separate groups of humpback whales, numerous dolphins swimming and jumping right beside the boat, and dozens of seal pups playing in the water at Seal Rocks. The water was quite rough at times but we are OK sailors and did not become unwell. The staff are very attentive and knowledgeable, and they served up some delicious treats for us. The design of the boat makes it quite easy for everyone to get a good view, from in or outside

We went with our kids and they both loved it. Captain was very skillful and brought us very close to the seal rock where we saw hundreds of seals in their natural habitat doing what they were best at: surfing, sunbathing, socializing and diving. The staff on the boat was friendly and knowledgeable about the animals. We would definitely do it again in the future. Even if you are not a huge fan of the seals, the ride out from Cowes to the seal rock is worth the price itself!
