Paul and Karina made us feel very welcome. Paul was extremely helpful right from my initial enquiry and very, very knowledgable. Saw a southern right whale and her calf which was fantastic, later dolphins and even an impromptu informative talk from a local fisherman which was fabulous. Hot drinks and muffins were a welcome respite from the chilly weather and... More

20 September we went on a cruise with Paul and Karina. What an experience. Great customer service, hot drinks and warm muffins, stunning scenery and interesting information about the ocean, wildlife and local history. To top it off two southern right whales at times choosing to come within a few metres of the boat, and dolphins riding the bow wave.... More

Went out with Paul on the warm, comfortable boat, not far out we found two Southern Right Whales, look like a Mother and Baby. Followed them around in difficult sighting conditions. Nice morning tea with muffins and biscuits. They also gave us a voucher for a discount on a meal purchased at a nearby hotel, a great added bonus.

The crew is professional and service is great. Ya, coffee and hot chocolate and muffins and cookies are provided free during the cruise. But sadly the great service and excitement was marred by no sighting of shakes although we did saw a seal and 2 dolphins. Will go back again if passing by the region.

We recently cruised out of Albany into the bay to watch whales, aboard the Ocean Adventures catamaran. The Skipper was very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas, and managed to find 3 southern right whales, and a humpback with calf. The hostess on the cruise was very pleasant, and made sure everyone was looked after. I would recommend this cruise

Mum and I did this tour on Saturday August 13th for her 70th Birthday. It was the best day ever. Staff are very friendly. When mum found out she had been given the tour for her birthday she was worried she wouldn't be able to get on the boat, but the boat is wheelchair friendly. Paul and his team are... More

A wet day, but well worth it. Very comfortable craft, informative commentary from skipper Paul, great whale spotting and refreshments from Karina and close up views of lots of Humpbacks.

A brilliant trip!! Paul and Karina were so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and welcoming the feeling on board was great before we had left the habour. And when whales were seen, Paul's expertise and experience ensured the boat was perfectly positioned for breath taking views, whilst respecting the whale's 'personal space'. Well worth every dollar - Thank you.
