Amazing nice trip where we were only 8 guests on board. Bi had our children with 11,12 and 14 years and they think this trip was at least as exciting as the whale watching. We were very close to the big Albetrosser and the skipper had answers to all our questions. On the way back we also saw fur seals and dolphins, which was a great pleasure for the children of the drill.
This experience was everything we hoped it would be and more. We saw lots of birds, many really close up. Our guide, Gary, was very knowledgeable and amazed us with immediate identification of all the birds we saw. The bonus was seeing lots of young seals on a rock and a very large pod of dolphins..We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and would highly recommend it.
The eater was rough heading out to view whales. Recommend motion sickness medication 1 hour before departure. Eat light The rough seas only for 20 - 30 min of trip Sit in Back of boat as well. Loved the sightings Dolphins were so entertaining. 5 stars
Great trip even if the birds were a limited in number. we did get to see a few species up close. Excellent skipper too who knew his stuff.
Perfect conditions, took heaps of photos. Skipper knew lots about the different bird species.
