Latest Update

Great Friday whale watching

Friday 30th January 2015


It has been another wonderful day whale watching with great sea conditions and fantastic sightings of semi-resident sperm whales - Tiaki and Manu. There was also a report of 500 dusky dolphins feeding closer in shore which is always a treat to see. Yesterday we had a blue whale pay us a visit which was a great surprise for all, passengers and crew alike. Have a wonderful weekend :)
