Our tour last year was so outstanding we came back and stayed in Eden for the school holidays this year, and brought extended family along! We were not disappointed. Another outstanding experience and very professional operation on the cat balou. If there are whales out there, cat balou will find them... Or perhaps the other way around!
What can I say FANTASTIC , FANTASTIC , FANTASTIC , one of the best experiences I've had. The friendly staff and great people. The whales jumping and splashing , couldn't of ask for a better morning out. LOVED IT.
"Perfect day with the whales"
We spent three and a half hours this morning on a Cat Balou whale watching cruise. The weather was perfect - sunny, no wind and calm seas. We had barely left the bay when our competent hosts on Cat Balou, Gordon and Ros, had located whales. Across the morning we were able to observe several pods of whales willing to show their tricks for the cameras. On the return trip we found some Dolphins who raced along side the boat at amazing speed. While Gordon tracked down new whales, Ros provided an excellent commentary on whale species and the history of whaling in Twofold Bay. A thoroughly enjoyable, perfect day.
"A totally magnificent experience"
What a fabulous way to spend a morning - cruising the crystal blue waters of what surely must be the most beautiful bay in the world, watching adult and baby whales seemingly jumping for joy, and so close that we could feel the spray...and then there were the dolphins, seals, pelicans, gulls, albatross also keeping us company...not to mention the Cat Balou's friendly hosts who not only shared their knowledge but were only to happy to patiently answer the ongoing questions that only a child can throw at you! Would highly recommend it and will definitely be doing it again!
"Eden is the best place for whales!"
Stunning old style working harbour and old fashioned town. The Cat Balou Cruise ship and family operated boat with a crew of three. Comfortable boat indoors cabin and viewing deck. 25 years of whale spotting and experience. Knowledgable and educational about Eden and it's history. Then whales are spotted with binoculars. Over 20 whales spotted over the three hours and dolphins. Coffee and tea on board. The most glorious morning.
