We were lucky with yet another Humpback sighting on our afternoon cruise, and we were joined by a playful pod of Dolphins on the way 🐬

Over the next few weeks the activity will be getting more and more exciting as the northern migration gets into full swing. So come and join us on the ocean and see for yourself.

With our sightings today, it’s a good sign that the numbers are increasing and we hope for an even busier time next week! 

The weather looks like it is going to hold us back over the weekend, but as soon as the conditions improve we’ll be out there! So be sure to keep an eye out for us and we’ll do our best to find the whales for you 🐋Image attachmentImage attachment

Great news: The weather forecast for the 26th of December looks fantastic, so we will have great conditions for our Boxing Day Cruises! ☀️

And due to popular demand we have added two extra cruises departing from Darling Harbour and Manly.

If you missed out before, here is your chance to be part of one of the most exciting days on Sydney Harbour and beyond as we watch the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race on the harbour and then follow the fleet offshore and head down the coast along the eastern beaches of Sydney.

  • 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.
