Amazing!

"Thoroughly enjoyed this experience, the trip and the staff are excellent. We saw several Humpback whales and a couple of Blue whales, definitely recommend. Thanks guys we loved it"


A breathtaking experience

"I can't praise this tour highly enough, they managed to find 3 species of whale, blue, humpback and Southern right. Humpbacks are easily seen off the nearby Cape at this time of year, though obviously not so close as from the boat, but the blue whale was a little early in the season I thought, so I was delighted when one of the crew spotted it, a life first for me and a very thrilling moment. The largest animal ever to have lived! At all times the crew were very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and informative and the welfare of the whales was always paramount throughout the trip."
