    What to Expect
    Welcome aboard the Steep Point, the largest and most comfortable in its fleet. This luxurious 25-metre stable vessel provides an excellent platform for whale watching, with 5 viewing decks from which you can sight the magnificent Humpback, Southern Right and occasionally, the very rare Blue Whale along with Seals, Dolphins and migratory bird life from all over the world.
