Determined to find Marine Life
Michael_L, Mar 2020
Great time with Paul, he made sure our experience was something to remember. He was DETERMINED to find the marine animals and of course he knew exactly where to look because we found them (Right Whales, Humpbacks, Seals, Dolphins, Sunfish, Penguins! Overall great experience!
Great Excursion
Kurt I, Sep 2019
Great boat and very worthwhile way to spend a couple hours. Paul was a friendly and knowledgeable guide and knew where to find all the marine life. Can’t believe the concentration of species we saw in just a couple hours: whales, dolphins, sunfish, penguins, jellyfish, and seabirds. And all with great views of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles from the ocean. Highly recommended!
