Beautiful weather was the highlight of the cruise.

Beautiful weather made it a great sunny day, but I believe they allow too many guests on the boat. I found it difficult to see most of the action due to people pushing in and just not having any basic respect, if I were to recommend I would recommend someone to take a smaller tour to enjoy all the action.

Great experience, crew were amazing, highly recommended.

Over 3 hours at sea seeing whales, great memories, thanks Whale one and crew!!! Weather was great but the sea a little choppy but our Skipper did his best to keep the ride smooth and dry! The girls in the crew were very happy and engaged with the passengers!

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience

Thoroughly enjoyed this experience, the crew were very friendly, helpful and informative, we had a bub with us and staff very helpful, however, we were not told ahead of time that there really was no room for a pram, but it was no drama in the end as we stowed the pram away. We will definitely do this again!
