Typically whales don't come in the harbour, but every once in a while they do. Quite often they do a little loop around the harbour entrance and realize quickly that they may have taken a wrong turn and head out to the open ocean again.
This curious humpback stayed for quite a while and almost made it past the Harbour Bridge.
You can imagine how exciting this was for everyone onboard, especially the photographer: Just picture a breaching whale with the Opera House in the background...
One we have not ticked off the bucket list yet. Maybe in 2021 😜 ... See MoreSee Less
Back in 2017 we were extremly fortunate to see Migaloo, the famous white whale on his southern migration back to antarctic waters (where most of the whales are now, thinking about starting their journey north).
I don't think we ever shared any video from that once-in-a-lifetime encouter, so this is a special treat!
We sure have our fingers crossed to see him for a third time in 2021 :) ... See MoreSee Less
80 days until our 2021 whale watching season starts on the 15th of May!! 🤩
We are beyond excited to finally be able to take you out whale watching again, after a difficult season in 2020. Signs are very promissing for this year, so fingers crossed for one of the best seasons we have ever had 🙂
Our 3hr Discovery Cruise, 2hr Adventure Cruise and Central Coast Whale Watching Cruises are now live in our booking system.
Save yourself 20% and book before the 30th of April with the promo code EarlyBird2021.
Our 2020 whale watching season is coming to an end with our last cruises of the year heading out from tomorrow until Sunday 😢
We hope to finish on a high as there are still whales swimming past Sydney each day. If we happen to miss out (which is a possibility late in the season), our return vouchers are also valid on any whale watching cruise next year. 😎
The annual @Rolex Sydney Hobart yacht race has been given the green light and will go ahead on the 26th of December.
It is one of the most spectacular sporting events of the year with a flotilla of sleek yachts races out of Sydney Harbour, following Australia's east coast down to Tasmania.
It is equally as amazing as a good whale watching cruise and always a highlight for us at Whale Watching Sydney, so if you want to come along for an adventure and watch the start of the race in the harbour and follow the yachts down the coast, book online www.myfastferry.com.au/special-events/boxing-day-cruises/
Seats are limited due to reduced COVID-19 capacity on all of our vessels, so get in quick :) ... See MoreSee Less
