Customer Reviews

I was very nervous to go out on the adventure as I was taking with my two girls both under the age of 12 - but Jaco and his incredible team were amazing. They were fun for the kids - safe - they spent time explaining things to the kids about the ocean and the seals. I would take my kids in the adventure again with this team in a heart beat. The team took extra time to show the kids the ship wreck in the bay and explain to them when is sank plus they saw a ray swim under the boat and took the time to drive after it so that the kids to get a chance to see it up close. We saw whales splashing in the bay and even saw the massive elephant seal. All of which the team took the time to let us see and chat about the animals and learn. Wow what and experience of a life time. Thank you guys !! I just love the ocean and you guys taught the girls so much on that one trip. - Gayle Botes
