OUR VESSELS

All our vessels are in full AMSA 1C Survey and carry all appropriate safety equipment.

TRUE BLUE

Our custom-built 16 metre Super Sea Cat with three unobstructed 360 degree viewing decks.

 

She is powered by 2 Cummins engines and a genset. We are committed to minimising our impact upon the environment, our engine emissions are extremely low and our fuel burn is also very efficient.

She has comfortable indoor lounge cabin seating. She also great whale watching vessel as she has complete walk around lower decks allowing you to get so much closer to the whales. With an upper deck enabling a great vantage point for photographs.

 

True Blue was built by Broadwater Engineering as a full ocean going vessel making her tough design perfect for ocean going whale watching.

 

She has separate Ladies & Mens toilets plus tea & coffee facilities.

EXTREME

The newest boat to join us!

 

We purchased her late 2020 to operate from Merimbula as she is a shallow draft RIB and the Merimbula sandbar has become very shallow. She is currently being painted and waiting for new engines to arrive in the country. She is spacious -14 meters in length and in survey to carry 50 passengers. With four 300hp Yamaha engines she is fast, comfortable and fun!

 

She does have an onboard toilet and a canopy to keep the sun off. But you may get wet from salt spray and you will probably get cold from the wind - but rest assured you will have a smile on your face - it is invigorating!  We have had a smaller RIB in the past and know that they are fantastic for whale watching - the whales love them - so can't wait to get her in the water for the 2021 whale season!

BUBBLES

Bubbles is our Sydney based boat, a 23.5 metre modern, fast, powered catamaran. She was built by Gold Coast Ships in 2013 for use as a whale watching and snorkelling vessel in the Great Barrier Reef.

 

She is in AMSA 1C Survey for 100 people and carries all required safety equipment. We purchased her in early 2020 to add to our whale watching business. She is roomy, comfortable and has plenty of outdoor viewing areas.

 

With her four separate outdoor decks she has lots of great vantage points to photograph whales from. She has a large downstairs cabin with comfortable seating and galley. Her comfortable lower indoor cabin is also great if the weather is cold or wet. Her upper deck has complete walk around access, with seating on both the forward and aft decks. There is plenty of space to relax and view whales and dolphins from.

She has four toilets each with hand basins and an onboard galley with tea and coffee facilities.

Bubbles is available for private hire. She is perfect for your summer Sydney Harbour function.

 

She has easy access to the water with a submersible swim platform and with her many outdoors decks lots of space for you and your friends to gather.

 

In Sydney we trade under Go Whale Watching.
