KING GEORGE SOUND SAFARI
My friends and I (10 of us) recently hired Captain Mark for a King George Sound Safari 6 hour cruise, and if you are looking for a way to spend a special day out with friends, I would highly recommend contacting King George Safari.

We were there to celebrate my "27th" birthday, and we enjoyed an awesome 6 hour cruise. Come lunch time, we dropped anchor just off Goode Beach in protected waters for a barbecue and a couple of cold drinks, before we set off on the next part of the tour.

Mark made it an interesting time out, and we were able to see up close the old whale chaser, Camp Quaranup, out into King George Sound, where we saw the oyster pots, some sea life, and it was amazing looking at Albany from the ocean.

I totally loved the day out, and am excitedly waiting for my chance to go on a whale tour with King George Sound next month (July).

***** TOTALLY RECOMMEND KING GEORGE SOUND SAFARI,

Must do in Albany
What a great morning cruise we had! We had a great time exploring King George Sound and the beautiful surrounding areas of Albany. Captain Mark provided interesting facts along the way on the history of the region. He made everyone feel very welcome and was a great host. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend.

Brilliant cruise
Fantastic day for a cruise with Captain Mark and his King George Sound Safari. Had the best time, fantastic photo ops, glassy water and amazing weather. Mark is larger than life, fun, entertaining and he's extremely knowledgeable about the local area. We shared the cruise with a lovely fun family which only added to the perfect day... Really can't rate King George Sound Safari and 'Captain' Mark any more highly.. His reputation proceeds him, every local business person we have spoken to and mentioned our cruise have just had nothing but praise for Mark which is just fantastic to hear. I can highly recommend Mark's Safari... 5 stars from me.. Cheers Mark for a fantastic cruise. G
