 Our Whale Watching Tour 

Enjoy Sydney sightseeing, a BBQ lunch and whale watching on the ultimate Sydney Harbour cruise. Relax while you see the sights of Sydney from the water as you cruise around Sydney Harbour and dine on a delicious buffet lunch served on board. Then head out into the open sea to go whale watching, passing through the Sydney Harbour Heads and into the Pacific Ocean. Numbers are restricted on this whale-watching cruise, with plenty of room inside and out for whale watching in comfort on board your spacious sightseeing vessel.


Seeing these giant mammals of the sea has the ability to change your whole view on life. The gracefulness, the peacefulness, the playfulness, the curiosity, the showmanship and the awesome power of a humpback whale is something everyone should witness in their lifetime.


Whale watching is an exhilarating adventure, seeing these incredible creatures frolicking and swimming in the ocean is an awe-inspiring treat that you will remember forever! Breaching, tail slaps, spy hopping, fluke dives and peduncle throws are all some of the great moves you may see from the whales on their migrations. The whale population is increasing each year and and this year there is 16,000 plus whales expected to migrate past Sydney, which gives great opportunity to see them as Sydney is on their migration routes. Whale watching season runs from May-November. During May - August the whales are on their Northern migration to Tropical North Queensland and then from mid August - September they are on their southern migration back to the Antarctic along with their new born calves, the little calves are just gorgeous.


This is the only whale watching tour operator in Sydney Harbour who offer an excellent half day tour including a BBQ lunch, specialising in whale watching tours. You will hear informative commentary and be taken care of by the fully trained and expert crew on-board.


You will also receive our 100% Guarantee that if you don't see whales you will be offered a return trip free of charge for use during the current season (Conditions apply). We operate within strict maritime safety guidelines and in extreme conditions we reserve the right to cancel a cruise in the interest of passenger and crew safety.   In this unlikely event guests will be offered a return cruise FOC or a refund. Windy and rainy conditions are not reasons for a cruise cancellation.  If guests choose not to travel in inclement weather they will forfeit the cost of the cruise.
