Amazing Whale watching tour with Dean providing an exciting boat ride and Gabrielle was so knowledgeable about the whales. Also a big thank you to Dean’s Mum for the yummy snacks! We were so lucky to see so many whales and plenty of action.

Loved watching Young calf breaching and splashing his tail around. Mum whale was massive, also saw turtles and dolphins. Staff were excellent and full of knowledge. Will head out again next year. Well worth the experience. Thanks Heaps!
