Exceeded all our expectations. Great catamaran and very knowledgeable crew. We got really close and personal to the whales and we even got a spectacular breaching off the stern of the boat. Money well spent and it's one item off our bucket list.

Outstanding opportunity to view both whales and dolphins. We got very close to both, but because they came to the boat (the Captain at all times complied with the regulations). Beautiful boat, excellent staff and commentary, and great service.

Just ring the guys at Amaroo they will tell you if whales are in the area yet. They are very helpful.
