Full description
Looking for a whale watching experience you'll remember and want to talk about for a long time? Crusader 1 is limited to 22 passengers,  therefore offering you a personal day out on the water with unobstructed views of these inquisitive majestic animals. Be in awe of the spectacular breaching, close encounters, magical songs and tail slapping of the humback whales. Get up close and personal with these gentle giants of the sea and encounter pods of dolphins and turtles. The biggest advantage of whale watching on Crusader 1 is that you'll always have that rail side position ready for that perfect photo moment. Crusader 1 is an open deck vessel, very safe and allows full walk around access even to the bow of the boat where you can watch the dolphins play and follow your path.

    The crew were lovely and so knowledgeable. The skipper was amazing and was able to use his vast experience to put our boat in just the right spot, so when a pair of male whales decided to surface, they did so about 5 meters away - much to the surprise and delight to all of us on board. Totally amazing. I highly recommend this whale watching activity to everyone. Without the Crowds was amazing!
