Wow! What another great day on the water.

We encountered many pods today on our 3-hour Discovery cruise.

If you look closely in the images you will see round "bumps" these are called "Tubercles" which have large hairs protruding from them and one theory is they are for detecting low-frequency sound to locate prey and communicate.

Well that was a swell day for some whale watching! After a few days of very rough sea conditions, and probably some very tired whales, we were back out today for some tail slaps and beautiful views of our humpbacks cruising along on their way North.

After a few days rest we love being back on the water, and the conditions are forecast to be great. Come and join us for our Discovery Cruises departing from Darling Harbour and Circular Quay twice a day and see the action for yourselves!Image attachmentImage attachment

Just as expected, lots of pods spotted up the coast this afternoon aboard our 3-Discovery cruise!

We were chugging north this time and went from one pod to another witnessing whales show off they’re sheer size and power with every breach we saw.

Whales galore this morning on our 3-hour Discovery cruise.

Look at that breach!

This morning, we were met with multiple pods scattered along the coast only just moments after leaving the heads.
We're seeing lots of activity on the water lately, so come jump onboard!

Public Holidays are our favourite, and when we have 5 amazing cruises in one day, we love it!

Here are some images from our 3 Express Cruises today, we had breaches on all of them and some very active whales as the sun started setting. The Humpback Highway is seeing a lot of traffic now and we feel very lucky to have these beautiful animals swimming right next to Sydney in such large numbers.

If you'd like to join us, our Discovery Cruises even have 20% off for all of June with the code 'WINTERWHALES'

We hope to see you soon!

  • 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.
