Tripadvisor Reviews

What our passengers say about us
  • Great trip – quick to get out of the heads – we saw 4 whales heading up the coast of Australia – was great event.

  • Just like the brochure. Big boat. Great vision of the whales on all sides. Passionate knowledgeable staff.

    S G
  • 15 minutes after boarding we had front row seats to a breaching hump back whale, just outside Sydney Heads.

  • An incredible experience! The enthusiasm of the staff both the boat driver and photographer was infectious

  • Amazing! Amazing! Amazing! It was by far the fave experience of my 4 and 6 year old boys’ trip to Sydney (their words, not mine).
