The 2hour cruise was enjoyable from start to finish. Great views of bays and the cruise ship at anchor backed up an excellent non intrusive commentary by Ros. With the complementary Coffee and biscuits and cheese it is excellent value.

The whale watching season runs from May to November so you'd be cutting it fine. Visit the Cat Balou website where you can contact them and ask if tours are still running at the end of November.
We hope to visit Eden from UK 9 November 2016. We are interested in a whale watching cruise. Is there a cruise on this date and if so, at what departure time? Can we book from UK by e-mail?
