Description: Fun day for adults and kids. Short cruise around the harbour, heading out the heads to see the whales up close. If short of time, or with teens, take the speed boat for the fun of it. Take snacks (crackers) to eat as you head out the heads to keep the sea sickness at bay. The whales are putting on quite a show at the moment, with plenty of full body breaches! While the behaviour of the whales can't be guaranteed, a quick look at their facebook page gives you an idea of the current activity. Perfect day out for the family. Word of warning, don't have a tight time frame - our cruise was close to four hours not three. Bookings here
