Best whale watching in Albany. With the largest and fastest charter vessel operating in the area we can get you to the whales with speed and comfort so you spend more time with the whales not traveling. Sit back in our spacious cabins club lounges, with your friends and family, enjoy quality refreshments. Get those memories that will last a life time. Your enjoyment is paramount to me. Hope to see you soon Paul Guest Master of the vessel "Silver Star II"

The sea and coast around Albany are so beautiful and you get such a different perspective by exploring by boat. The granite cliffs are just stunning. We saw about a dozen humpback whales which was very exciting, plus Indian yellow-nosed albatross, black-browed albatross, an osprey,...More
