Be one of the few, not the many. For an up close and personal experience that you will never forget, see the magnificent humpback whale from the uncrowded deck. As one of the smallest vessels and a luxury sailing catamaran you will experience the trip of a lifetime. See the whales eye to eye and listen as your skipper can share his 30 years of experience with marine mammals.

Carrying only a maximum of 24 people your day will be an intimate and personal tour. The full day tour includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. The vessel is a brand new modern luxury 38 foot sailing catamaran, offering wide flat decks and room for all to see.

I had such a great day with the Blue Dolphin crew. They are very friendly and chatty and really try their best to give you the best experience possible on the day. We were very lucky to have a very calm day and also see the whales doing pretty much everything we had hoped for - acrobatics from afar, singing from right under the boat. You won't go hungry with all the food they serve - not just a full and very healthy buffet lunch which catered very well for vegetarians - but also with tea, coffee, morning tea, afternoon tea and fruit. The catamaran is beautiful and clean, and there is so much room for everyone to see the whales as well as lie and lounge around. The crew even provide cushions to make you more comfortable. There is wifi on board if you're desperate to send your photos and videos to friends and family immediately. There's a reason why there are people who come multiple times in a week and in the year. It's definitely worth paying a little extra for the full experience.
