Gang_Q, Oct 2023
Everything was perfect except for the wrong address of meeting points.The experience of watching four whales play,roll and even call up close is exhilarating and impressive.
Great experience in Jervis Bay
Winny_S, Oct 2023
Very nice and easy going bunch! Great staff and crew! And we were in luck, did see 2 pairs of mother and calf in the bay that day!!!!
It was ok, the whales were far, but the boat captain made all efforts to take us to see them
Livia_T, Sep 2023
The staff were attentive, spoke to people on the boat, they offered jackets to those who were cold. Only disappointment was that we didn't see the whales closer. Also, the photo on the tour website shows a big boat but the trip is on a small boat.
Afternoon adventure
Diana_L, Sep 2023
We had an amazing time thanks to Wayne, Paula and Pary who were most helpful and informative. They ensured that everyone was able to see the dolphins (a bonus) and the whales. An incredible afternoon!
The best day ever!
Alicia_F, Sep 2023
Beyond expectations, amazing crew, getting close to the most awesome, inquisitive and beautiful beings. A pod of 8 or 9 entertained us for about 40 minutes. Thank you for one of the best experiences of my life!
JiaMing_L, Sep 2023
Lucky enough to have 2 whales come up close. Captain and crew were very friendly and fun. Would book again!
Bad service
Shruthi_S, Sep 2023
We travelled from Melbourne to do this activity, and we couldn’t not to see any whales. We hope for a free trip to see the whales again. Unfortunately, that was a miss too. Highly disappointed and I do not recommend.

Ryan_S, Aug 2023
So up close and personal with the Whales, it’s was a fantastic experience! And the boat itself is very accommodating. Staff were great!
Great Crew
Patricia_I, Aug 2023
Unfortunately, for us, this was more like whale-glimpsing rather than whale watching, despite the crew's best efforts. They were wonderful and stayed out longer than scheduled to allow us time to see a couple of minor sightings in the choppy water. However, wild creatures will follow their own routines. The crew made the trip enjoyable in any event. I would definitely use them again if I were in the area for another trip.
Do not miss this!
Amanda_L, Aug 2023
An absolutely fabulous experience! We saw whales and had dolphins bow surfing with the boat. The crew were friendly and informative. A not to be missed experience, highly recommended.
A fantastic experience
carole_s, Aug 2023
wonderful time, the staff were great. We sighted a number of whales some close to the boat and on the way back we had a pod of dolphins that escorted the boat back to the wharf. Fantastic time

Thank you Carole for your review. I will pass on your comments to the boat crew
Great experience
Dibha_B, Jul 2023
Seeing the Whale. It took us a while to spot one so I almost had no hope of seeing them but suddenly one of the whale jumped out and it was the exciting moment. After that we were able to spot few more of the Whales. Along with the Whales, the thrill of being in the middle( may not be exactly middle but quite far abit from beach) of the sea was the experience itself with the big waves in front of you. This was our first experience but was very much worthy. Oh and Yes the staffs in the cruise they added more value to our experience.

We went there for the 1 pm cruise, but there was a mechanical failure so the cruise didn't happen. We drove almost 200km from this.
Response from Host, Jul 2023
Please accept our apologies, for the mechanical failure but passenger safety is paramount.
Great experience
