Extremely informative. Although the whales weren't doing particularly photogenic stuff, we did get some good sights and it was rather impressive. The guide was knowledgeable and the free tea was nice.
The departure point was easy to find and we enjoyed learning about the owners of the expensive houses on the waterfront as we passed them.
The tour offered good value for money; after all, I booked it because it was the cheapest one I could find, and upon booking, the US-based call centre operator (we did a next-day booking) was really friendly, great to deal with. The option to pay in either AUD and GBP was a nice touch too.
Literally, the only negative thing I can think of is that the skipper opined that global warming was a myth. Overall, an extremely good experience and I would recommend to friends and family and readers here.

super relaxing looking at the deep blue seas and blue bodies of the humpbacks. on the previous day, the orator-on-board mentioned 7 sightings. we had endless sightings you would never believe whales are facing extinction, plus, 2 breach (whale jumped COMPLETELY) out of the water.

Absolutely fantasic trip. The skipper had everything very well organized. The skipper and co gave fantastic commentary and even a tour guide of the local waterfront houses on the way out of the river. My family enjoyed the experienc and would do it again.

Rough weather and seas, but the trip was okay. Saw plenty of whale activity, a couple of breaches, tails, awesome. I'd do it again at the $76 price, wouldn't do it again for $90 odd.
