your experience

Get ready for an exhilarating experience that will amaze everyone, young or old. Fill your bellies with a hot breakfast or a BBQ assisted service buffet lunch onboard; then set off to fill your hearts with the antics of whales in their natural environment. With multiple outside viewing areas, you have a good vantage point for admiring both the whales and views of the harbor. Don't forget to unwind in the inner lounge area, or refresh yourself with a beverage from the licensed bar (at your own expense).

Accompanying you on the cruise will be an experienced staff, who will ensure that you have the time of your life. Lend an ear to the live commentary to learn a wealth of facts on whales, their migrating patterns, and behavior. For example, did you know that the southern hemisphere humpback migration this year is estimated to be around 36,000 whales, that too with an average of 11% rise per year? Considering that these creatures were nearly hunted to extinction 45 years ago, this is nothing short of amazing! Take this chance to ask any questions you may have and sate your curiosity about the remarkable sea life.
