Ros & Gordon Butt have been operating Cat Balou Cruises since 1987 are the longest established whale watching operators in NSW, having conducted their popular Whale Watching Cruises at Eden since 1990. As a family owned and operated business they have gained the reputation of maintaining high safety standards, exceptional service, and value on all their cruises, as well as sharing their love of the area and nature with their passengers. They also assist various organizations with whale and dolphin research.

This vessel has been designed for optimum viewing and comfort and can carry 72 passengers, however they carry less than this number to ensure maximum comfort and viewing.
