great afternoon out, lucky with weather as we could get all the way down to Cape Naturaliste and we spotted about 8 whales at different times. They were all heading South so we were lucky to have seen them before they disappeared around the Cape on their way to Antartica. The boat is clean and comfortable, the Captain followed Whales that were spotted but didn't get in close, leaving it to the animals to approach us. The marine Biologist was very knowledgeable. all the crew were charming and accommodating.

Loved every minute of it. The crew were amazing and friendly. Saw dolphins and humpback whales, 2 mums and their babies. They were playing and put on an awesome display. So happy I finally went along and had the chance to experience the magnificence of the ocean

take warm waterproof clothes and soft shoes to maximize your experience

It was the experience of a lifetime as we saw Blue Whales

Fantastic experience, could not recommend it enough
