Oh, my WHALE! We are (almost) speechless 😱

The wind and swell had picked up since our morning trip, but so did the whale activity. We've been seeing a lot of active calves lately (which we love) but it's always spectacular to see an active adult and that's what we had all afternoon!

A 12/10 trip as described by one of our regulars who comes most weekends! 😎

Weekend whale vibes!! 🤘

Our trip started out slow, very windy conditions made spotting whales a little more challenging than usual. But the perseverance of the passengers and crew paid off when we came across an active cow and calf pair!! 💥

We spent the rest of the trip with the pair before returning home 🐋

It was worth the wait. Thank you for being patient so we could see this.

Outstanding

We found ourselves a little pocket rocket with this calf this afternoon 🚀

We spotted the action as we were leaving Sydney Harbour and stayed with this little guy for almost 40 minutes as we cruised south together 🐋

We then headed north to see what else we could find after our little pocket rocket ran out of fuel. We spotted a few distant splashes and we managed to watch a couple more groups before heading home 😊

i saw them off north head yesterday

We had a great time

We loved watching this calf spend more time out of the water than in it on yesterday's whale watching cruise. We should still have good numbers of whales pass Sydney before things are starting to quieten down towards the end of November.

So if you thought about going for a cruise, now is your chance before they are gone again until 2021.

Booking mine for next week! 😍

Any idea why the beast goes in head first - rather hard?

Em Fulton should we?

Beautiful❤️

YES!

We found this little head-banger of a humpback whale just off Manly Beach this afternoon! 🥳

We saw it breaching from miles away and had our fingers crossed it would keep going by the time we got there. Not only did it keep going, it literally breached circles around our boat for the entire time we watched it! 💥

Remember, weekday cruises are currently 20% off with promo code: Weekday.

Book online at www.whalewatchingsydney.com.au if you want to see something hopefully as amazing as this 😎

  • My experience was amazing I say Whales breaching it was fantastic. And the crew on the boat made my experiences a great and safe place to be.

  • Weather was a bit miserable, but the boat made it comfortable. The crew had their finger on the pulse out there and when whales were spotted by a sister boat, we were taken quickly to a perfect viewing spot. The whales repeatedly breached, including a double breach from the pair. We got great photos and finished the voyage pumped.

  • The boat, crew and overall experience was fabulous! Whales were promised and wow we were blown away, we can’t believe that we saw whales breaching and tail slapping so close we felt at times we could almost touch them.
    This crew have perfected the tour with an onboard Marine Biologist and happy, easygoing but safe attitude.

  • Once we got out of the Harbor, we started seeing whales. They were jumping and feeding and just cruising along side the boat!! The crew were all super friendly and helpful and kept the trip fun and interesting.

  • Must to do with kids. Amazing experience with kids. Must to do if in Sydney. There is big difference watching whale compared to other animals as the shear size of whale and they move is magnificent.
