4 star rating: Recommended December 2014

The trip was very good. We saw whales, dolphins, seals, and penguins. However, we did not see any sharks.

The arrangements to pick up and drop were comfortable. The time of the trip was changed to full day. I.e. 9 am to 6 pm. And lunch was not included.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2016

A long way to go from Capetown. The boat ride was great fun but didn't see a lot of marine animals. But it was a beautiful day.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this August 2016

We where looking forward to spending some time whale watching however, once we saw a whale then the crew seemed more interested in getting back to shore - they said they were worried about the weather however, this was fine. They tour guide was not informative but spent most of her time texting unprofessional. It could have been fantastic but the poor hospitality and rushed approach meant it was a complete disappointment.
