Many thanks to the crew that took us out , they were totally professional and very friendly. The catermaran was well suited and equipped with a bar and snacks ,it was not crowded so there was plenty of room and we were allowed to move about above and below deck. We headed out to sea but didn't see any whales then as we headed back we saw 2 water spouts indicating that there were whales just below the surface, the skipper headed back out towards them and yes we saw 2 small young whales break surface , what an amazing experience it was, we enjoyed it so much. We recommend this tour to anyone and we will be back next year!! Thanks again.
We did see whales! We motored out of the harbour for 5 minutes saw 3 whales on the surface a little way off and motored towards them and they dived before we could get close. They we stayed in the same spot for an hour waiting for them to surface which they did for a couple of minutes. The worst thing was just staying still when we could have cruised along the coast line a bit a perhaps seen some more further on. Other boats doing the whale watching were doing this not just staying still.
The crew seemed more intent on serving drinks than anything else. They gave us a talk for about 2 minutes about the whales. The boat was tatty. A lot of money for not much enjoyment! The crew were all very polite and cheery but I am afraid that didnt make up for everything else!
The tour was great! We had opted for pickup which was convenient. We saw a dolphin and a whale. Our captain took us closer to the whale once we spotted it. Tour was supposed to be for 2hrs but we came back in 1.5hrs. The trampoline on the front of the ship was a nice surprise! Overall, it was good!
