The 2hr Express Cruise is Sydney’s best value whale watching cruise if you want a quick whale watching fix but don’t want to give up on comfort.

Fantasea Catalina is an Australian built catamaran with contemporary interior décor and design. A great vessel for whale watching with two covered decks, an open front landing and an open top deck.

Reaching top speeds of up to 25 Knots, getting you from Circular Quay to the open ocean takes less than 20min, leaving almost an hour and a half for whale watching.
