    The whales are far away and we can only see a bit of the action here and there even in an one-hour duration. This is not really what we expected. The boat was so wobbly that many felt sick and vomitted.

    Although I've made many sea trips, this was so rough that I and several other passengers became so sick that we could not even rise from our seats to view the whales that were sighted. I have never before been seasick.

    It was great, manage to watch the whales but it wasn't so near, that was the only disappointment. However, it was still a great experience.

    Some whale sightings but very far away. Just luck of the draw on the day I suppose. The narration over the loud speaker, however, could have been much louder and clearer, couldn't hear most of it. Boat excellent.

    Unfortunately we did not see any whales. Seemed to be late in the season

    We really enjoyed Hillarys Boat Harbour, it was a beautiful day, but the whale watching was a little disappointing. We were not allowed on deck until we reached the whale watching area. We were blocked into our seats when we were allowed and it took some time to get out, meanwhile all the prime watching spots were taken and of course they (watchers) didn't move the whole time. We didn't see a thing as we were not tall enough to see over their heads. We were disappointed for our interstate visitors. Luckily we enjoyed the rest of the day enjoying each others company.

    unfortunately not enough whales in the area. the crew did try and track think was 3 pods but being a under water mammals can not judge what is going to happen. the crew were friendly and informative. but would do again

    Being Sunday there was a large crowd with lots of kids, and being short I could not see very well through the ranks of people who ran over as soon as the sighting was announced. I waved my camera about to see if I could capture a shot of the whales way in the distance, I thought we would run into more pods but we didn't so I felt seasick for little or no reason... but I know it is unpredictable.

    Hilary's boat harbour was pretty, the shops and restaurants were lovely to browse around. The aquarium was beautiful and well worth a visit. The boat trip to see the whales was nice and the crew were very helpful. We did sight a few whales briefly and saw them in the distance,it was a shame we didn't see them close up.I think if you just did the whale watching it would have been a disappointing day trip. The fact that there were other things to see and do at Hilary's made it a lovely day trip.
