We loved our trip, Thank you All! Despite the cold weather, we received a warm welcome, and experienced a thrilling day at sea! The staff was friendly, the service top notch and the warm soup afterwards was a special bonus. We would highly recommend this excursion!

A wonderful experience! We saw whales and their calves, checked out the activity around the shark cage diving boat, went to see a "stink of seals" (my own collective noun ;) ) . We also saw many birds and rafts of penguins out fishing. The guides are very informative, and answered all the questions. Life vests and protective jackets are provided, together with coffee and muffins before hand and lovely soup afterwards.

Staff were wonderful, professional, friendly and very informative. Very well worth the time and cost and would highly recommend. Only negative in booking, due to its title "Whales in Hermanus" we understood you to be based in Hermanus. Thankfully we noticed timeously that your location was Gansbaai which was an hour's drive outside Hermanus.
