Customer Reviews

IT was a wonderful boattrip, we have Seen Whalewatching, Bulls Springboks, mother and kalbs. Nice, allreafy Go on :-) - Enrico Wolter

Bella esperienza, divertente e originale rispetto alle altre compagnie del settore l’uscita in barca a vela, più libera e rilassata. Abbiamo visto e seguito per un lungo periodo due megattere, godendone la compagnia nel pomeriggio. Assolutamente consigliata. - Fabio Sommovigo

Nice welcome, professional. Our trip was delayed 1 day for the weather without any issue... the crue is friendly and knows how to stay just enough on the background. Magnificent experience! - Michaël De Beukelaer

Whale watching was one of the most amazing experiences I had during my trip in South Africa and Romonza made it possible! Our trip was postponed to a few hours due to low tide but then everything was well managed. The boat is very nice and we were around 10 people so it was not too crowded. We say many whales and seals and we came back to the harbour perfectly on time. I definitely recommend it! - Laura
