Customer Reviews

We didn't see wales close to the boat or jumping. It was really sad to me because I want to see wales very much. But we saw alot of dolfins and it was amazing! - Marina

We weren't lucky that day, as whales were almost undetectable Nonetheless we appreciated the offer of a free cruise in the next days, even if we had to renounce for time constrain. This offer, as well as the politeness of personnel at the office and on the boat, will bring our intention to advertise this tour among our friends. - luigi michielin

Two years ago I did the tour with a Swedish family of friends and this time with two guests from Israel. Ashwin was our skipper on both occasions, and both experiences were amazing. Ocean Safaris is a very professional outfit, and go out of your way to make sure you get the most of whatever is on offer. On both occasions, we came back well beyond the scheduled time - the first time because they found a second elephant seal they were more excited about that even we as guests were, and because Ashwin was determined that we see whales (and we did, Brydes whales), and the second time because we came across a pod of Humped Backed whales, one of which continued to slap the water with its tail and do a half breach onto its back and because we then saw a couple of schools of dolphins which we followed for a while. We never had the impression that we were a bunch of tourists for whom they were going through the motions - they had genuine interest in what they do and are passionate about it. On my two experiences, I would strongly recommend Ocean Safaris - Dave Wilson

It was great going out there to the sea. Professional guides. Good experience. - ran shivek

What an unbelievable experience! Our guide was amazing and very knowledgeable as well as a fantastic skipper who guided us through rough seas in order to see 5 whales. Will do it again no doubt! - Christina Sardianos
