Full description
Board a comfortable vessel to travel in search of these gentle giants. If a whale is sighted, relax as the boat is put into neutral 100 meters (about 328 feet) or more away from the majestic creature. If the conditions are deemed safe by your trained crew, follow your guide into the water with a floating safety line attached to the boat. You, of course, are also welcome to just watch if you don't want to swim. Listen as your trained crew provides interesting information on the area and the beautiful whales swimming around you.

    There are two boats.

    We booked a cruise and swim with the whales. we got a high speed jet boat with 10-15min extreme cornering and wave jumping experience. followed by a 4 hour whale spotting cruise. each pod we found didn’t seem keen to hang around. we did get a swim, but the whales moved away each time. we would do it again but not on the jet boat. don’t get me wrong, this company is great and really professional and i have used them for other adventures. we just ended up on the wrong boat, out of the two they have.
