Greatly recommend

The weather was great, so quite a bit of luck. We also got to see humpback whales, amazing luck again. The whole tour is a string of amazing views and breathtaking sights. The guide was very informative and was able to answer all the questions that I had. Great experience, would definitely recommend!

Awesum

We had a great trip. All 3 parts of the trip were good and we had a very good coach driver who spoke about the power station and wildlife. Would recommend the trip.
