Customer Reviews

Amazing day out with a very charismatic and knowledgeable guide. We spotted Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales which were awe inspiring sights. In the way back we watched a Great White shark get chased away by seals. To finish an amazing trip we ran into a pod of humpback dolphins. Well worth it! - Christopher Davies

Very well organised and informative trip. Saw 4 whales and a great white shark hunting seals and being chased off by the seals - amazing! - Mark Lovell

Very good service, we saw whales as advertised. Special consideration given due to our 8 month old baby. - Stanley Olech

Schöner Ausflug. Wellen waren leider zu hoch, so dass es draußen vor der Bay zu gefährlich war. Sicherheit zuerst, daher Abbruch und zurück zur Bay. Dort haben wir Delphine und ganz viele Robben gesehen. Leider keine Wale. - Marion Hessel

One of the the best experience is SA we were able to see whales from very close the staff were friendly with a lot of knowledge, we saw dolphins. - yonatan butbul
