Board your vessel for the day and receive a safety briefing before starting your whale watching adventure. In good weather conditions travellers will be allowed on the top-deck before departure for great unobstructed views, otherwise they will be allowed on top only after the whales have been found. Travel out onto the ocean taking in great views as you go.  Once the whales have been spotted, the vessel is allowed to move closer to the whales where it stops and the engines disengage is to prevent the whales from being injured by the propellers. Experience for yourself the astonishment of being so close to these majestic creatures.  As the whales are curious creatures, they might move up to the vessel for some 'people watching'. See a variety of other marine wildife such as dolphins and seals as you coast along the water. As you travel through the day and spot these beautiful creatures learn more about them from your crew, before they take you back to land after a once in a lifetime experience.

Brilliant trip even though we were early in the season. Our Skipper and crew were helpful and friendly, and we had a thorough safety briefing. We sat ‘upstairs’ next to the Skipper, he was very knowledgeable, stopped the boat frequently to show us and explain about marine animals. We saw Sunfish, seals, jellyfish, treated to a spectacular display from a huge pod of dolphins and then finally, a wonderful sighting of a Bryde whale and her calf. Beautiful trip around the bay with great views of the beaches. I loved that the crew are so conscientious and that we stopped to pick up large plastic litter…

Although the tour did not take place still five stars because our safety was paramount - the ocean was simply too rough to carry out the tour and the operator only had our safety in the foreground even though we were already there and he was left with the transport costs - mine Respect for this - I heard from vacationers who went out with another provider that they vomited for two hours

Fantastic!

We saw 2 sets of mother and child northern rights whales, 2 more single whales and 2 more 'breaching' further out in the bay! Along with dolphins and seals, a truly unforgettable experience, in the presence of a great crew with extensive knowledge of the area and mammals

Everything worked out wonderfully. The tickets were valid and the ship crew was nice - we saw everything we wanted, from a distance, not close like some great photos that you usually see. Was good.

Amazing experience and great knowledge, friendly stuff.
