What an mazing day! Staff are friendly and informative and the boat was comfortable and just the right size (not too many people). A must for the bucket list!

The best day out with whales. The crew is exceptional and friendly, knowledgeable and always caring for their customers. Our trip was so good! We saw breaching whales and slapping tails at the surface. Highly recommend this boat, you won't be disappointed.
