These giants of the sea once nearly hunted to extinction, it is believed in history the humpback population was once as low as 200 whales.

We enjoyed our day immensely watching the humpback whales displaying their playful activity. BBQ lunch was served and once we got past the heads we started seeing the whales . Some really good breaches and close up views. Crew was fantastic and great value for money .

Upon arrival check point we were advised to take motion sickness tablets prior to operation. This was great advice as the boat ride was quite savage. We didn’t get to see any activity in the sea therefore it was more of a lesuire cruise. Staff were friendly enough and food was okay. Plenty of seating on the boat inside and out. The indoor luxurious benches/corner sofas were very comfortable. Due to no mammal appearances Princess Cruises have offered a free revisit within the next 3 years of the purchased event date.

it was i good trip, the first 1,5 hours we didn’t se anything but for the last hour we followed one whale, which were amazing. the captain was very protective about it; didn’t scared it by speeding up, or hunted it down, the whale came to us, and almost touched the boat, that’s how close it came.

BBQ lunch delicious. Sadly we only saw 3 whales, the day before there were many more. The commentary was interesting but frequently drowned out by the engine noise. Some heaters would have been welcomed as the doors were left open. I had a hat coat and thermal top on and was frozen.
