Everything went very well. The pick up was on time and the boat trip was amazing. We were not too many people on board and could move around quite easily. The guides were very informative and fascinating us with detailed information. We did not by far see all animals mentioned in the description of this trip. For me this was fine as it depends on nature. I mention it to manage expectations of persons who are still thinking whether to book or not. We came close to penguins and whales and had enough time to take pictures and to enjoy these great creatures. We did not have time for lunch and headed back straight after the two hour boat trip. Water and a snack was offered on the way back to the harbour. therefore 4 instead of 5 stars.
Saw some copper sharks up close & personal, great whites are not in season at shark alley. However it was nice to do the experience overall and see some kind of sharks, something is better than nothing. The team was very nice and the experience was safe.
Animal and eco friendly environment, they explained a lot of things during the boat time and managed to see some whales really close, without being aggressive. I would highly recommend them.
Saw several mother southern right whales with their babies. It was too short though at 2 hours in the boat (including going and back) for the 2 1/2 hours drive there and same back!
Excellent trip but 4.15am pick up was unnecessarily early! It could easily have been 30 minutes later as we hung around for over an hour.
