  • Well, we’re do I start. First off we simply had a GREAT experience with Tom. This guy is the real deal. Our group was amazed with the whales, birds and a very special event with a school of dolphins.....  more »
  • What an incredible experience. Captain Tom made it a really informative trip. We were so lucky to see 4 humpback whales. A mother and very playful calf, and 2 other adults. We were given flotation suits, hats and gloves to wear. My 6 year old daughter was given waterproof jacket and trousers and a life jacket. You should wear closed toe shoes. It wasn't really cold but the gloves were good for holding on. It felt very safe on the zodiac and exhilarating when we travelled at speed.
  • WOW! Captain Tom is very knowledgeable about the area and its inhabitants! We were able to see a few whales break the surface of the water and feed on krill. If you are in the area Ocean Explorations is a must do
