    The staff was nice and the tour was very well organized. I really enjoyed the boat trip even tho the weather was not as sunny as hoped... but of course it was no one fault :D We were even able to see a dolphin and, since it wasn't even the good season for that, i found myself very lucky and happy! The only appoint i can do is that there was no enough english... all the explanation about the dolphins and so, where all only in chinese.

What To Expect

Home to 29 species of cetaceans (whales and dolphins) - an even more impressive fact when you realize there are only 60 species in the world – it's no wonder Taiwan's waters are a fantastic whale watching location. Cruise along the east coast in the hope of sighting a number of whale species including killer whales, humpback whales and sperm whales. Spot a tail splashing into the sea, watch them launch themselves out of the water or send jets from their blowholes. Not to mention the abundance of dolphins you're sure to sight. With everything from bottlenose, Chinese white, spinner and Risso's dolphins which dance in and out of the waves in large groups just feet from your boat. Watch these incredible creatures with the beautiful cliff coastline as your backdrop - it's a truly magical sight to behold!

    Awesome experience! We saw many dolphins and they played around in the ocean. Unfortunately, we don’t see any whale but the dolphins are so cute. Hope that next time we can see the whale that up close as we do with the dolphins.

    Incredible experience. Managed to cruise along with a school of tropical spotted dolphins for about 15 minutes. The guide made sure we felt informed and safe and made an extra effort to explain in English just for us.

    due to bad weather, morning sea trip was not possible, but the tour operator rescheduled it to the afternoon at no extra cost. tour group have to first attend a short video sharing session to learn more about the different species of dolphins before we headed to the harbour. we got introduced to the two most common species of dolphins. after a choppy 40mins boat ride, we managed to see a group of spinning dolphins, but no sight of whales (it really depends on luck). overall a wonderful experience. Take note: the boat ride can get really choppy, advisable not to come on a full stomach.

    They should rename it dolphin watching and not whale watching. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our time even though the waters were extremely choppy. The guide was passionate and knowledgeable with her sharing.

    The staff were very nice and were very accommodating in picking up/ dropping off passengers. We got to see a lot of dolphins near the end of the boat trip which was totally worth it :)
