We had a super awesome whale watching adventure and would recommend Geeth for anyone interested in this tour. He and his crew were very attentive and special mention should be made that he is not just out to get money but respects the animals and gives them their space and respects and adheres to the rules and regulations. They were... More

It was a great and incredible exciting to see the enormous whales on the open sea! We saw also some turtles and manta rays! The staff was very kind and explained us lot of stuff about whales & ocean life, offered us a breakfest and nausea pills before the trip started! Everything was perfect and I would highly recommend this... More

The crew on board were experienced in siting whales, steering the boat to best viewpoints and also informative. Water and snack were included. Long trip - approx 5 hours nut worth ever minute when we saw 40metre blue whale appear 6 times.

We booked through our agent for the Whale watching with Geeth and found to be a right choice. They sent us someone to pick us up from our hotel and there we were inside a boat waiting for the whales.. As its a big animal the boat has to travel deep inside. So its almost 1 hour to 1 and... More

Geeth is a Rastafarian who loves the sea, his wind blown curls and sunburnt face says it all. And he has a knack of spotting the whales and understanding their behaviour in a way that helps the tourists get better views and better photos! You may need to go far into the sea, and spend minutes on end waiting for... More

Geeth and his team were extremely friendly. We were picked up and returned to our hotel as part of the fee. We received a pack lunch of banana and cheese sandwich upon setting off. Unlike most of the other boats who chased the whales, we sat a little further away and got the best views by far. You can tell... More

Had a great price and were astonished about how the crew took good care of us : sea-sickness pills offered, a cup of tea, lunchboxes, a postcard and a leaflet on whale characteristics, and Geeths friendly explanations Today the sea was calm and it didn't take more than 40 mn before we encountered our first 3 blue whales out of...

I really recommend this tour with Geeth. I had a great time, we saw blue whales and the staff was really nice and friendly. They offer breakfast on board and a bottle of water. It was a nice tour with sun and magic experience.

Overall the trip was great. It was a nice day but the sea was very rough and we were a little bit unlucky but there's nothing anyone can do about that. We saw a couple of dolphins on the way out of the harbour and after about 4 hours spotted one blue whale which was all the whales we saw.... More
