  • Everything is very well planned. The crew does everything for the physical well-being on board. So there is fruit, breakfast, lunch, coffee, tea and a dessert. All are very friendly and accommodating. On each side of the boat there are "scouts" so that no whale or dolphin is missed. Be sure to note: The swell is very strong, even though it was said at check-in that the waves are not so high today. This may be true for experienced sailors, but not for tourists. Be sure to take a tablet against seasickness beforehand! With us on board, half the boat had to hand over and after 1-2 hours. However, the trip went 8 hours. I can only guess how the people concerned fared. Therefore, it is essential to prepare. Then you will experience a great excursion.

  • Very well organized pet friendly tour! Were picked up early in the morning at the hotel. Boat trip lasted up to about 2 hours, so a full day! Have seen several dolphins and whales, even right next to the boat! And that without hunting them. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • The crew was so knowledgeable! We stayed a respectful distance from all the wildlife we came across. The food was great, tea hot, and the whole process was very smooth. They even had a crew member on board with a giant telephoto who shared pictures with everyone at the end. I can't wait to go back and see the crew again!
  • This was an amazing experience, very very enjoyed. I would say this is by far the best whale watching in Merissa. We was the first boat to leave the harbour, the first to see the whales, which we had seen dive down and come back up about 3-4 time before any other boat had even found them, but the time the other boats came they was so many all trying to get a glimpse it was quite unreal watching them all racing about. Our crew was most respectful of the whales and didn't bother chasing them with all the other boats as the whales get scared. Also seen dolphin's and turtles, team where very knowledgeable and food was spot on. Worth it!!!
