How long is the trip?

The Thrill rides are of 30 minutes duration, but the skipper may also stop for a quick swim depending on weather conditions or to check out unexpected marine guests who may drop in for a visit. The Whale Safari and Sea Safari are of 2 hours duration. Plan to arrive at the departure location at least 10 minutes before hand.

How Wet will I get?

We also recommend sitting on the inside aisle seats for fewer splashes. Electronic equipment and valuables will be placed in our on board locker. For the Whale Safari and Sea Safari we provide Burke jackets to keep you warm and dry in cooler months. Dry bags are also provided to all passengers on these tours for your camera and any other valuables.

What should I wear?

If conditions are favourable in the summer you might get the opportunity for a swim so wear your bathers and bring a towel.
