Had a fantastic morning with Dom on the CoastXP. This was our 4th attempt to see some whales after 2 lots of bad weather and one lovely cruise but no whale sightings. Each time our cruise was cancelled or no whales seen Dom always made it easy for us to rebook for another day.

Dominic is an absolute treasure and so knowledgeable and fun on the whale watching boat. I am from Newcastle but loved seeing our coastline and the whales, dolphins and seals of course from a different perspective!! I would do the experience again in a heartbeat. So much fun!!!

Coast XP was great. Communication was professional and so easy to organise. The experience was modern and heaps of fun! Great day out on the water and we saw whales and loads of dolphins. Have already recommended this trip to a few friend. My boyfriend and I loved it.
