We went with Good Boy Whale Watching, which was booked by our guide. We wee very well treated, especially with tasty food and drink. We were lucky enough to catch excellent views of some Blue Whales. A good choice of boat!

Our guide booked for us whale watching. For both was 13000 rupees. Tour starts at 6:30 in our hotel. On the boat was super friendly staff. We got tea, water, sandwiches and juice. Saw 3 whales. Recommend this GOOD BOY

Heartbreaking to see this boat spewing horrendous pollution into the water around the whales. This boat should be outlawed. If you care even an ounce for these magnificent creatures, DO NOT book this company until they fix this boat or take it off the water.

Good Boy is professional and uses well maintained boats and knowledgeable crew. Would encourage Good Boy to rely more on technology and less on “luck” to locate whale pods.
