  • We were in January 2016, we were 6 of our group and another couple. The crew was very friendly and professional. Being a small group, you can enjoy more! Highly recommended for those who don't want to be in a Catamaran with 100 people more.

  • With only a few people aboard, this is a great way to see penguins and sea lions. Even though you don't get off on the islands, you get very close and the scenery is beautiful! For us, all the times w...  read more »
  • We visited in November and were impressed with the sales pitch from the enthusiastic rep on the waterfront. We even cancelled a tour with one of the larger providers as this seemed to more interesting and intimate alternative. We were informed the bus would leave at 11 am and return by 5 pm. This was important to us as we had a flight at 8:30 pm. When there was no sign of the bus until 11:30 am, i asked if this would cause a delay but was told that this was normal, and we'd be back by 6. Hold on, the timings had already changed. Slightly concerned we decided we still had sufficient cushion and Cambridge the bus. Following to 1 hour 15minutes bus journey we expected another 45 minutes for the boat to arrive, by which point it was quite clear that we would not be returning by 6 pm. The captain informed us that the boat trip would take 4 hours (meaning 730 - 8 pm back to town), and seemed somewhat astonished that we had been told otherwise. We were forced to reboard the bus and return to town, having wasted an entire day and not seen any penguins. When we returned the rep was surprised that we wouldnt have made it, as the previous day's group had returned around 6. I think this company is relatively new, as the tourist office didnt seem to know about them, so maybe this was a teething problem, and hence we were simply unlucky. However, being fed this misinformation with such confidence despite knowing about our flight commitments is unforgiveable. We could have booked the early morning trip and it would have been fine. This was the most infuriating part.
