Weather was great. We were offered a discount instead of guaranteed whale sighting and we were happy just to cruise out to sea but ended up seeing about 8 whales close up and a couple of Dolphins too. The whales were very active thrashing their tails and putting on quite a show. Julie gave us an informative narrative and Matt... More

Wonderful friendly and knowledgable crew took us on a thoroughly enjoyable cruise. Plenty of whale action even though it's getting towards the end of the migration. The crew worked hard to ensure they delivered on their whales guarantee. Absolutely recommend Amaroo and her crew.

Just been on awesome whale watching cruise from Forster NSW. 24 metre catamaran with guided tour down the harbour under bridge linking Tuncurry and Forster. Commentary all the way by Kerry and views of coastline,oyster farms, islands. Close views of both whales and dolphins. Glorious weather.

My wife and I boarded the vessel on Sunday morning on our way out of town we saw about 5 pods of whales with lots of mothers with their young and then they took us to see dolphins. Morning tea was supplied and a great day.

Guaranteed to see whales and wd did. We saw at least 10. The boat is very new and comfortable, the guide is knowledgeable and doesn't talk too much. We followed the whales and saw lots of mothers and babies. We didn't have to go far to catch up with them.

We had many hump back whales playing and breaching as close to the boat as you are allowed to get. If you are around in the right time of year it's a must.
