The best money I've ever spent on the Goldie! Picture me: expecting to see a fin miles away and happily so. Not even close. During this literally JAW DROPPING two and a half hour cruise we saw DOZENS of whales. When you arrive they snap a family photo on the dock (available at the end for $20). They'll also offer you the chance to purchase various photos of the whales the photographer has captured during the cruise. Once we boarded the boat there was a limited free coffee, tea and biscuits bar. During the cruise the small cafe also serves paid cold drinks (including beer) and chips. The tour commenced in the chanel with a jumping shark. Excitement from the word go! Once we ventured into the Coral Sea our first finned friends were a Mama humpback and her very new floppy finned calf, basking around as it explored it's new world. What a way to commence. Once we said farewell to the happy family even ten minutes or so we made contact with a blowhole, waving flipper, dorsal fin or splashing tail. We even saw a breech or two. These beautiful and majestic creatures were everywhere and happy to say hello. Obviously every experience is different but, honestly, I would have been happy seeing only. The fact that we saw so many, so active, seems a blessing indeed. So, if you feel the same, book and enjoy

It’s great to be in the open ocean but not as amazing as I thought it would be.Far from those photos on the promotions maybe its one of those slow days but its a fun day anyway specially for our kids. I’m not considering doing it again.
