We did the sunset cruise a week ago and had a fantastic experience. Smooth sailing, whales put on a show for us, great music, snacks and staff fantastic. Highly recommend you all do it. The highlight of Broome, second to the sunsets

My partner and I did a whale watching trip on Thursday 12th July 2018), and have to say it was a magnificent day out.
The boat is lovely;
the crew were both informative and friendly;
the platters of cakes, fruit and nibbles were delicious;
there was plenty of tea and coffee (plus alcohol for those who wanted it); and,
YES, there were plenty of whales.

A great morning that I would heartily recommend to locals and visitors alike.

We went on the Starsand yesterday and had such a wonderful day! The boat itself it stunning, she is a real beauty with lovely teak and a great size for a fun group. The staff were really great, Bruce our captain was professional and interested in sharing his knowledge with us and Rachel was just a super happy and a joy to have on the trail with us. She prepared a lovely lunch and everyone had more than enough to eat and she managed to do all that and keep us safe with Bruce in some quite bumpy waves on the way back from Rotto. We got so wet sitting on the front and we laughed and laughed and laughed with the other thrill seekers. There is plenty of room at the back should you need a dryer place but I recommend the front of you want to have a really great sailing experience. This trip leaves you 2 hours on the Island. We had plenty of time for a stroll, swim and to eat breakfast as the trip leaves at 7.30am. If you want more time on the island then catch the ferry but for us the highlight was the sailing. We just loved the boat and I would suggest if you don't like adventure it's not for you. But if you have a love for living and fun definitely give it a go and you wont regret it. Thanks again Bruce and Rachel what a great team and for all your hard work. Happy easter all.

Paid for my partner and I to go to Rottnest for his birthday. I thought it would be nice to go for a bit of 'luxury', how wrong was I! Very uncomfortable journey that took 2 hours to get there. Only got 3 hours on land and then was served a very poor lunch. Save your money and get the ferry, at least you know exactly what you're going to get with that!
