Hi Tony, Thank you for your high recommendation. We are glad that you enjoyed the cruise as much as the awesome whales sighted! Please come join us again next year!
We had atrocious weather with huge swells. Despite this the experienced staff were very knowledgable and helpful to those not feeling well. Definitely take sea sickness tablets in rough weather. We saw five whales who were having a wonderful time with mothers and calves breaching....More

A great way to spend an afternoon- informative, exciting and great photo opportunities. I have been on several whale-watching boats throughout Australia, but this was the best. The marine biologist's attempt at whale song was a highlight.
Hi Alex, Thank you rating our Whale Watching Experience as the best yet! We really care about protecting our whales and conserving the environment, if our marine biologists can have fun in between all the better! Hope to see you again next season!
We could see a mother and calf humpback whales playing very close. It was OK for elderly people to stay inside the boat and still be able to enjoy the outside views through the windows.
Hi Chi D, Thank you for rating your experience as 5 stars Excellent. Our vessel the Jerry Bailey is large enough to provide seating for all guests, inside or out to enjoy the most of whale watching from where they are most comfortable.
Today, 6/10/2017 we had a fantastic day watching families of whales playing around our boat! The closest big whale was not more than 20m away from us! Jumping out of the water, turning belly up as falling back into the ocean, the whales did quite...More
