We had an excellent day out on the Tasman Sea. The weather was perfect, the ocean was perfect. We saw hundreds of dolphins and we lucky enough to be able to see the seals up close. The staff were great, very friendly and informative and a great lunch too. Highly recommend this cruise. Thanks for a great day

It was unfortunate that it was a dull day as we didn’t get to see the turquoise blue waters of the bay but we could see the interesting rock formations and white beaches on shore. However, the boat was very comfortable, the crew were knowledgeable and entertaining and we were given a delicious lunch but would have appreciated a small bottle of water. It was a pleasant trip but a little long.

Could not have been better, crew, comfort, excellent lunch. Whole day was outstanding. Such team work, excellent knowledge of the wildlife and sealife . The history of the area too. 4.5 hours flew by. We would definitely do that trip again and will also be looking at more tours with the same company. Made our trip. Thank you
