We saw dolphins in the river ... and we saw two different types of dolphins in the ocean. It was just amazing to watch the bottlenose dolphins surfing in the waves at the beach. And it was just as amazing to watch the common dolphins further out in the ocean jumping out of the water and playing. The tour group... More

Saw lots of dolphins. Morning tea included in tour. Crew very friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The boat is very clean and appeared well maintained and presentable. Was a terrific way to spend a morning. Great value for money.

We saw dolphins! Lots of them. Morning tea was provided. It was basic: tea, coffee or juice and biscuits; but adequate. Given the location: a boat; it was perfect. The boat was comfortable and the crew knowledgeable. Strongly recommend this activity.

Friendly from the booking call and the entire experience. Informative talks thru the trip that we enjoyed immensely without being too much. Clean vessel. Great coffee. AND followed dolphins that was a delight. Highly recommended.

The Amaroo is great for a cruise offshore to see lots of dolphins and various seabirds plus a ride on the very new boat. Then back into the lake for some smooth cursing back to the wharf. Dolphins are amazing and staff very knowledgeable and friendly. We're looking forward to whale watching season June/July.

A fun morning, plenty of dolphins to see. The crew were friendly and knowledgeable, and it was clear that they cared about the dolphins. I'm not a good sea traveller, so took a travacalm tablet as soon as I got on board, but had no problems with seasickness even when the waves became a bit choppy. There was plenty of... More

My wife, toddler and i went on the cruise. 10/10 for the cruise and crew but the gaps on the handrails were too wide to let our little by herself.
