watching whale is one of my highlight for S.africa trip. Brett is really cool guy and he made me not scare to be on the boat ;-) and the price is really seasonable. Bua from Thailand.

Sent to e-mails to company to organise trip. No replies. Got up early and headed to dock to see if could go on 10am trip. No one there even after waiting 45 mins from 9.30am till 10.15am. Dissapointed.

Do not miss this trip. Just being out on the ocean bouncing across the waves in the rib at high speed was exciting and thrilling enough, with the different sights, scenery and wildlife, but when Brett ( the owner) found hundreds of dolphins, two whales,...More

Hi, we recommend the 60 min Trip and no, this does not replace an actual walk in the Heads as the trip is water-based. We can be more accurate with our recommendation if you tell us when you intend to visit?
