The respectful way the Tasman Venture Whale Watch crew conducts the whale watch experience; cutting the engines a considerable distance from the majestic whale pods and waiting for the whales to approach the boat in their own time. Mothers and calfs came right up to the boat and as heard from a little 3 year old boy who expressed every body's thoughts in the crisp silence "OH MY GOODNESS!!"

We saw many whales. They liased with other boats to find whales and took us there. The captain and crew made sure we didn’t miss out on anything. A good afternoon tea and nibbles later was provided. A great experience. A highly recommend.

We had an amazing experience and saw so many whales. Staff were wonderful, caring and so friendly. They went above and beyond making sure everyone had a great experience and interacted with everyone. Whales were fantastic moving all around the boat putting in a show. Would recommend anyone going on this trip

The Covid restrictions were escalated on the day of the cruise yet the crew did a great job to protect us and explain their plans. The boat was kept clean with one of the crew constantly wiping surfaces. We had a great experience with a lot of close in whale sitings, we saw numerous breaches and roles. The boat was a great viewing platform
Wonderful experience, thank you.

Seeing lots of whales was wonderful, just wish they had come closer. The seating was very uncomfortable. The afternoon tea was very nice except for the hot chocolate, it was awful. The crew were very friendly and helpful and the commentator was fantastic. All in all it was a great day.
Lovely experience
