I cannot believe the good reviews as the trip we went on was an ordeal. We left at 7.30am with the packed breakfast in a box (despite most of us having packed breakfasts from our hotels) and we were out on the sea until 3pm!...More

We took Blue Water for a whale watching cruise. The cruise was good, better than other cruise boats we saw. They have more staff spotting for marine activity on the cruise than other companies and therefore you see more. The only negative comment I would...More

Very nice trip, slightly more expensive than others but worth it as faster boat and less crowded. Very nice and helpful staff on boat. My 7 year old got seasick and they were very kind and helpful. Would recommend them

We really enjoyed the tour with the Blue Water Company. We saw many whales and dolphins along the way. The boat captain was very respectful and mindful of the animals, maintaining a good distance and yet still allowing us to see it well. Highly recommend

The team on the boat were sharp eyed and very helpful. The boat itself was very comfortable and we felt very safe. The whole set up came across as very professional.
