Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Educational, fun and exciting.

Incredible trip! We saw so many whales throughout the whole trip. Glenn and Montana were great guides. Always prefer a smaller company, who acts respectfully towards the wild life. Loved that the group size/boat was small. Would 100% recommend!

Glenn and Montana ran a fantastic tour - super safety-aware, so respectful of the animals, really informative, and clearly love what they do. We saw some gorgeous humpbacks, two turtles, a pod of bottlenose dolphins, heard about some of the Indigenous history of the area - I am keen to come back to do some free diving / snorkeling in the future! Thanks for such a great tour guys :).

It was a perfect experience!
I really dreamt about seeing whales and i saw maybe 20 whales jumping in that morning. The guide was really nice with us and also gave us a tea with a cookie. He also answered to all of our questions.
I was afraid of not seeing whales or only see one a little on the surface, but i left very satisfied. As the boat was not a big one, It was very easy to move and the whales went under our boat. We also saw a very big group of dolphins swimming right Next and under our boat.
It was a perfect experience!! Really worth it, thank you 🐋

I went on the first whale watching tour for the season and what an opener it was!
I highly recommend these guys, they are fun, knowledgeable and take safety very seriously.
This was my first tour but it won't be my last. I was lucky enough to see a few whales, pods of dolphins and a turtle.
These guys will look after you and the whales will take care of the entertainment!

This was the first activity we booked when we decided to visit Australia with our kids aged 10 and 7. We thoroughly enjoyed it as a family - we saw leopard sharks among lots of other fish, missed the giant turtles though. Glenn and his crew have a deep understanding of the area as well as snorkeling, ensuring everyone is safe and has a great time. Love the video Glenn creates at the end of the session - making the activity super memorable!

Just a quick note to say thank you to Wild Byron and to recommend this trip. Glen and co are knowledgeable, respectful, accommodating, great fun and all round perfect hosts.
The trip out on the boat was speedy and felt safe (even to a sea-fearer like myself) and the wildlife you can see at Julien Rocks is terrific.
My children are 10 and 14 and loved it. We saw turtles, sharks and all manner of fish I am not qualified to name. Five stars!

I have been diving with Glenn and Wild Byron for more than 2 years now. His knowledge of the ocean and bar is by far the best. I've always felt safe on the boat trip, and he takes care of his passengers, ensuring that it's a comfortable trip for everyone on board.

His guides are lovely and ensure everyone sees the beautiful wildlife while snorkelling and are always safe. He is passionate about the location, its heritage, and its meaning to the traditional owners.

Thank you, Glenn, myself and the Pressure Project. We love taking our students out for freediving courses and fun dives on your boat :)
