A Magical day

A magical day whale watching. Starting with a scrumptious morning tea. The crew make sure that your whale experience is the best it can be. There is plenty of time to enjoy any whales we encountered. Lunch was really nice too. Second time with Freedom 111. Would definitely go with them again.

This is definitely a "MUST DO"

Despite it being a very grey & rainy day, we had a great day! The owners, Sue & Keith, did their utmost to ensure we had a brilliant time. The crew were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful, the food was great, and Keith traipsed all over the bay to make sure we saw as many whales as possible. I'm very keen to go again and would recommend this trip to anyone wanting a fabulous day out!

Amazing Whale watching on Freedom 111

We started the day on Freedom excited and ended the day exhausted, exhilarated and in awe of both Freedom and the whales. We had an amazing day seeing more whales than I could have imagined. I experienced whales so close we could almost touch them. They are inquisitive and so awesome. The crew were friendly, helpful and informative. Morning tea scones and profiteroles, lunch salads and warm chicken wings with ham, afternoon tea cheese crackers and fruits. I will come back to enjoy a day with Freedom again. Thank you to the crew for a day I won’t forget. Chris M

Perfect day!

This was honestly one of my best trips ever. Keith and crew are amazing, they do their utmost to make you feel really comfortable (they even had sunscreen!) They seem to have a very good sense for the whales and their behaviors, we saw more than 30 whales on our day trip and some of them just 5-10 meters away playing around the boat. Keith shared a lot of information on the whales as well. A really unique experience. Besides that, food was really good and plenty all day, you could taste the home made touch! Thanks for a wonderful day 👍
