What you can expect

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.
