I've lived in Newcastle all my life and have travelled extensively around the world. This tour will not be forgotten. Dom is a great guide - knowledgeable, clear with what to expect, communications before and after the tour and also great humour. Cannot recommend this highly enough.Pete MackenzieTrip Advisor

Went on the Encounter Tour on the state of the art Atmos boat which was very safe and accommodating. Had amazing seats yet still plenty of adventure. Saw amazing wildlife and learnt so much. Dominic the tour guide was extremely knowledgable and knew the best spots for seeing whales.Johnathon KTrip Advisor
Thank you for an amazing trip. Dom was a great guide and very knowledgable. We were privileged to see a beautiful mama and baby humpback as well as dolphins and New Zealand fur seals. Loved every moment and would definitely do it again.Sally RoscoeTrip Advisor
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!Natalie AbeleTrip Advisor
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 🙂Nyssa LinkFacebook
