GENERAL QUESTIONS

What if the weather is bad?

  • We monitor the weather closely.  If we have concerns about the weather and your safety prior to the day of your tour - we will contact you to either delay or reschedule your tour.  If you do not hear from us - the tour will go ahead as planned.  For the record ...... the whales prefer a bit of swell, wind & rain!

When do the whales arrive and leave?

  • Our lives would be SO much easier if we had that answer!  Generally, they start moving into the bay around June-ish and leave around late September - early October-ish.  After 13 years of operation - we still aren't sure of all the variables that impact upon their migration - but we do know it's a well kept secret - along with how many are going to show up!  Our season of July, August and September is generally a pretty safe bet - all going well.  You'll obviously have better odds in August as its the middle of the migration season!

Can I go on one of your tours if I have limited mobility?

  • If you want to come on one of our tours - our crew will make sure you can!  Please contact us to discuss how we can make this happen.

I have dietary requirements, do you cater for that?

  • Certainly do!  Just let us know and we'll cater to your needs.

Do I have to book online?

  • No you don't.  Our online booking system is available as a convenient option.  If you'd prefer to talk to one of our staff, please don't hesitate to call.
