    Great day on the island with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Sarg Mark was the best guide we could hope for giving us a lot of info on the history of the island. The pace was great: enough time to enjoy the different spots but not too long so we can see as much as possible. I definitely recommend (traveled with one 11 year old boy who had a great day).

Definitely at the top of my list for adventures I’ve been on in Australia! Seeing whales, discovering the island and being guided by lovely professionals in their field made it all the while + more! The crew on board were awesome and I loved how they carried the excitement all throughout the day. We were lucky enough to see many whales breach and go for a swim with some which was an out of this world experience! Big thanks to Mel, Sara and team!
