Well organised and excellent boat to go out into the bay. Good, entertaining and informative commentary from the guide/host. Saw 2 groups of Southern Right whales - male/female/young. Whales surrounded the boat and were behaving normally. Excellent views and a good post trip video produced and available at extra cost -> and worth it as the views of the whales provided a better aerial perspective. Recommended

it was awesome We saw a lot of whales. The meeting point was easy to find. For those who are seasick, it is recommended to take tablets beforehand. For the adventurous a huge experience plus. Atlantic Ocean just isn't calm

A bucket list item realised! This highly skilled crew took us to within metres of the whales. The pre-charter briefing was informative and interesting. Exceptional cruise. A must-do in whale watching season.

Awesome trip. Saw lots of whales and the guides were very knowledgeable. Would highly recommend. Great value for money!

Very friendly and well informed staff! Awesome whale watching!
