The location is easy to find and pleasant. The ferry is comfortable and spacious. The crew are well informed, and share their knowledge with the passengers. The scenery in the area is fantastic. We saw lots of humpback whales. The weather was great. Just a really good day out, and excellent value.
The experience was excellent
Marjorie Glass 2 years ago

The experience was excellent, crew and guide very efficient, friendly and informative - and the whales were cooperative! Two suggestions - viewing platform too cramped to enable easy position changes - better catering required. We’ve whale watched in Canada, USA, South Africa and twice in Oz, and this vessel had the smallest viewing area we’ve experienced.

Great vessel
Johnno Damon 2 years ago

Great vessel, super stable, plenty of viewing access for photography, not over crowded, powerful boat gets you to the action quickly without being bounced overboard. Staff relaxed friendly and super informative. Myself having spent a lot of time on boats over East diving and nature watching, this trip is in my top 10 experiences, the whales turned on a good show too. Thanks Experience Oz. Bringing all my Australian visitors soon.

It was my daughter's and I first experience of Whale Watching
Yvonne 3 years ago

It was my daughter's and I first experience of Whale Watching. We decided on going upon a recommendation of a close friend. The staf and guide from AQWA were very good and the giude was very informative and passed her knwledge on tobthe people on the boat. We never expected to see so many whales on migration in the arwa near Hilkarys harbour. Displaying so many of their behavours. An absolutely amazing experience. Thank you!

Absolutely Brilliant

Absolutely Brilliant. We saw lots of humpbacks and found the tour very informative. Thank you for a wonderful day out.

As you head out into the open ocean and if you suffer from seasickness, head to the pharmacy prior to your whale watch cruise and grab some seasickness remedy.
