I booked for Friday, they rang me at 9.30pm Thursday night to say there was no cruise that day. Booked us for Wednesday, arrived, boat overloaded so couldn't get on. Transfered us to Thursday, my fingers are crossed. Won't be booking with them again,

Excellent boat, just the right size to get close to the whales. Steve (the tour operator) and Nicole were friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. They did a great job of finding lots of whales that swam right up next to the boat.

Wonderful experience seeing these majestic creatures up close. The crew were very informative and went to a lot of trouble to make sure we all had a great time, they were also humorous and entertaining. We will be going again!
