Sam, the owner of the company, is a fantastic person! When you are in Huskisson, just visit his office and trust him! No matter if it is a dolphin watching, charter or whale cruise! We had an amazing experience with the "Hidden Secrets Tour" and we can greatly recommend it!

We spent five days in and around Jervis Bay and purchased the Eco Whale Watch cruise. It was the tail end of the whale season, so we knew we were taking a risk of not seeing any whales, but wanted to get out and experience the bay nonetheless. Bad news first - we didn't see any whales, but were able... More

We were originally scheduled for the Dolphin cruise - offloading a heap of Red Balloon vouchers - and booked the Dolphin tour online. Shortly after we were contacted by Dolphin Watch and were upgraded to the whale cruise instead, which we gratefully accepted. Come the day of the cruise we were presented with some fairly challenging conditions out on the... More

Have written hundreds of reviews with all being factual and fair. There are review that have gotten 5 stars rating but all of them post experience review. This is my first time writing a review without going for it. Purchased 6 tickets for 6 adults and 1 infant from Groupon where the cruise operator has advertised the whale watching cruise... More

Thank you for your review. Our communication skills have really let us down here. From the first contact that we had, we thought we were clear as to what our schedule was for the date that you provided. We could see that what you were after and what we had to offer were different. This is why I called you... More

What a sell out. We didn't see anything. They said there was a whale, I think it was 500m away. And because of that we did not get a refund or a second try to see some dolphins. I understand that its not sure you see these wild animals but just be fare. We pay a lot of money, if... More

This cruise sounds like it didn't go to plan for you but thank you for your review. However, a couple of points we should make; We did have sightings of 4 whales on your cruise - 2 mothers and their 2 calves. National Parks & Wildlife have a 300m exclusion zone around Whale calves that we must respect. On your... More

The whales decide to be seen or there those days we go... We were a lucky day with around 10 whales, stating 5 minutes after we left. Mostly mother playing with cub. The staff have useful information and the boat was ok, respecting the animal, not tooo close.

We went whale watching with Dolphin Watch Cruises on 5th Nov. The crew were fantastic and while searching for whales were quick to point them out. Once we were outside Jervis Bay the sea was a little rough and that added to the fun of the search. We saw a few whales but had to move back into the bay... More

My husband and I had an awesome time with Dolphin Watch Cruises today on their morning Whale Watch Cruise (approx 2hrs) Weather and sea conditions were fabulous only made more spectacular by seeing a whale breach in the shallow waters of the beautiful Jarvis Bay.
