The Marine BIG 5!

Our Marine Big 5 trips gives you the opportunity to spot the ocean’s Marine Big 5, which includes, sharks, whales, dolphins, penguins and seals. The on board marine biologist will be on hand to teach you more about the amazing animals that visit our shores.



Every year from June to December, the Southern right whales arrive to mate and calve. You may witness mating displays, breaching, tail slapping, spy-hopping and much more.
