These guys are great. Our original booking got cancelled due to high winds and we rebooked a few days later. Although the boat isn't the nicest looking boat its a giant tin can and movement on the boat is a little restricted due to the seating arrangements I would certainly book this tour again. The guys Tim and Simon were relaxed and full of energy for the afternoon ahead. They were just as enthusiastic as their guests on finding whales. They tried their hardest to deliver and delivered they did. They have one of the quickest boats on the island for whale watching which meant when they spotted a whale way off in the distance they would still take us. We had been out with another operator who had whale sightings closer than these guys and said it was too far/not enough time.
When we eventually spotted whales everyone was delighted, they respected the laws regarding distances between the boat and the whales, although no one told the whales. They swam incredibly close to us and swam right under the boat, which you could see through the water. Truly amazing.
Of course whale sightings are the deciding factor as to whether or not the trip was successful. However I think if we had not seen any whales although it would have been disappointing the guys would have made it a fun trip. They were great at keep everyone entertained and kept the refreshments coming. Their boat also had a shade cover which was new, this is the first time I had been on a boat trip with this option and it was very welcomed. I would certainly recommend this tour to all and if we had more time I would have booked up other excursions with them.
The Whale Watching trip was outstanding. We were originally booked on Monday, but the seas were really rough. We turned around and went back. Simon offered a different tour or our money back. He didn't have to do that but they are a class act!! We returned on Friday and were treated to an amazing trip with lots of whales and lots of breeches. Simon and Tim run a great tour!!

The Whale watching excursion was totally awesome. The crew was very knowledgeable, cordial, and courteous. The gave us tidbits about the whales. Their mating seasons and their seasonal excursions. We say plenty of whales, dolphins, and turtles after following the advice given by our crew. Me and my wife were celebrating our 25th anniversary and this was one of the biggest highlights of the trip. I would fully recommend to everyone
We had no luck with whales mid-December, the season has only started, but the crew made all the effort to make the trip worth doing. No regrets.

We arrived for our tour at the scheduled time, only to be told we were an hour later and viator was wrong. We were told 3 separate times the boat was ready, only to be asked to wait longer. Once on the boat, the crew was polite, but unengaged in the process. It was disturbing to hear the captain speak about his 14 year old daughter in an inappropriate way and then attempt to engage us all in a political discussion awkward. We did see whales and seeing the island from the boat was nice, but nothing special. All in all, I would highly suggest skipping this tour!
