Quinn and his Co are excellent and tried their very best to increase our chances on witnessing sea wildlifes throughout the cruise. We saw couple dugongs, stingrays, sea turtles, sea snakes and dolphins. Appreciate their efforts to stop the catamaran to pick up trash and...More

The Shotover is a graceful catamaran with a viewing area for everyone - from netting slung between the hulls to shaded benches. The morning animal viewing is run enthusiastically and we saw all the promised animals. Highly recommended adventure around the bay.

Our family of 4 went on the 1/2 day tour and saw dugongs galore, dolphins and turtles. The catamaran is gorgeous - 360 degree views, nets to lie on over the water. Worth doing just for this. Kids loved it.

We booked for the day cruise which was 5 hours not 3 hours as advertised and were then advised that the Sunset cruise was thrown in for free. This has to be the best value cruise in Australia and not only that both Quinn (our...More

This was a great cruise, staff were super friendly and knowledgeable. The boat was great and the scenery superb. We were lucky enough to see alot of wildlife, but would have enjoyed it if we didn’t.
