    The pick-up provided to and fro the hotel was really good. We had sight of the whales many times and it was a really fun experience. The sea was rather choppy so people with seasickness should consider the anti-nausea pills.

  • Sze Wai 23 Dec 2018
    went there for the first day of the tour, couldn't see a single whale :( a little bit disappointing but thats nature! Do check if your chosen date falls into the refund period, i couldn't get a refund as stated but they offered a re-boarding card.

  • Angela 12 Jun 2018
    Crew was dedicated to finding a whale for us to see. Sea was calm, weather beautiful. After 1+h, then we spotted a small whale. Even though we saw only a bit from far for a few seconds a few times. we enjoyed it. Boat had enough indoor seating but outdoor seating limited though that is normal.
  • IRENE 24 Mar 2018
