Boat-based whale-watching gives one the opportunity to experience these magnificent Southern Right Whale up close. A trip on our registered whale watching boat almost guarantees an unforgettable encounter with these awesome creatures. Our vessel, UNATHI, takes 36 passengers, ensuring good viewing from both the upper, or lower viewing area. The vessel is fitted with on-board toilet facilities, and is child friendly. Our "smaller" boat is the choice for the tourist who prefers a more exclusive experience. We do not make use of a PA system on board, in order to contribute to our motto of non-disturbance for wildlife as well as tourists.
