Whale Watching Sydney
At Whale Watching Sydney, we have been watching humpback whales off the coast of Sydney for the past 25 years, so we know the great feeling that people get seeing whales up close.
Our experienced and knowledgeable staff look forward to welcoming you aboard our custom-built, fast and spacious vessels equipped with Active Ride Control to smooth out the bumps at sea and multiple open deck platforms for easy viewing.
You will see some of our most famous landmarks as we cruise through the main reach of Sydney Harbour towards Sydney Heads and the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. From here you will witness these magnificent mammals migrate past Sydney’s beaches and rugged cliffs in the biggest mass migration in the world.
Our 3hr Discovery Cruise provides the full whale watching experience enabling you to spend more time watching whales in their natural habitat from onboard our brand new vessel. Fore and aft outdoor seating and large windows throughout internal areas ensure optimum viewing from all areas.
To further enhance your whale watching experience, informative commentary is provided by our Marine Naturalist. No need to worry if you do not capture the perfect whale photo, our onboard photographer will have that covered. Cruise includes complimentary tea, coffee and biscuits. More substantial snacks and drinks are also available from our onboard refreshments bar.
