Important Information

As whales are wild animals, sightings are not guaranteed. However, our experienced and attentive crew ensure that you have the best possible chance at finding the whales.

It is one of our most frequently asked questions! “What if we don’t see whales” – If on any tour whales are NOT sighted, passengers are entitled to go on our next available tour free of charge, or if they would prefer to go another day they can choose to have 50% off their next full price whale watching tour to be redeemed within that same whale watching season.
