Whale Watching

Whale Watching

There is nothing quite like the majestic, free-flowing movements of the whales of the sea. Beautiful mammals who breathe the same air we do, by magnificently breaching the surface to create a spectacle for the world to see.

Now while we cannot promise you that we will be able to show you whales on your voyage with us, we can confirm that we have had decades of experience at sea, searching for these animals and that you are in very good hands.

Our skippers will do their utmost best at all times to ensure that you have a magnificent charter experience and that no matter the circumstances of what you get to see out on the water, your trip is not only enjoyable but memorable and something that you would do again in an instance.

Our skippers know their limits and will keep a safe viewing distance from these gigantic animals once they have been sighted. All skippers aboard the vessel are completely proficient on the best practices for locating marine life, and thus it is essential that you listen to your skipper’s instruction at all times for your safety and that of those on board.

We Cannot Wait for you to Climb Aboard, so don’t forget to BOOK Your Next Sea Voyage with OUC.
