CoastXP offers a fun new way to explore Newcastle and it’s coastline. The Encounter Tour was safe, informative, and fun, and the custom-built boat was comfortable and fast. We saw whales, dolphins, and seals. I’d highly recommend this to locals and tourists alike!

Such a good experience with Dom on the weekend. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. We were seeing the whales swimming so close. Also saw a seal and dolphin on our way. Overall very happy with the trip :)
