BUBBLES

Bubbles is our Sydney based boat. She also operates daily whale watching tours in Bermagui from August to November. She is a 23.5 metre modern, fast, powered catamaran. She was built by Gold Coast Ships in 2013 for use as a whale watching and snorkelling vessel in the Great Barrier Reef.

 

She is in AMSA 1C Survey for 100 people and carries all required safety equipment. We purchased her in early 2020 to add to our whale watching business. She is roomy, comfortable and has plenty of outdoor viewing areas.

 

With her four separate outdoor decks she has lots of great vantage points to photograph whales from. She has a large downstairs cabin with comfortable seating and galley. Her comfortable lower indoor cabin is also great if the weather is cold or wet. Her upper deck has complete walk around access, with seating on both the forward and aft decks. There is plenty of space to relax and view whales and dolphins from.

She has four toilets each with hand basins and an onboard galley with tea and coffee facilities.

Bubbles is available for private hire. She is perfect for your summer Sydney Harbour function.

 

She has easy access to the water with a submersible swim platform and with her many outdoors decks lots of space for you and your friends to gather.

 

In Sydney we trade under Go Whale Watching.

SENSATIONAL II

The newest boat to join us!

 

We purchased her late 2020 to operate from Merimbula as she is a shallow draft Tourist Vessel and perfect for crossing the Merimbula sandbar.  She is spacious -14 meters in length and in survey to carry 50 passengers. On most tours we limit this to 40 people to ensure a little more room for everyone. When fishing we limit the numbers even further to 12 anglers. With four 300hp Yamaha engines she is fast, comfortable and fun!

 

She does have an onboard toilet and a canopy to keep the sun off. But you may get wet from salt spray and you will probably get cold from the wind - but rest assured you will have a smile on your face - it is invigorating!  She is fantastic for dolphin and whale watching - the dolphins and whales love her! You will love her too - she helps you to get up close and personal with the ocean and its amazing wildlife!
