An awesome day of whale watching out on the Tasman. Great conditions, awesome tail-chucking humpbacks, and happy guests.

Looks like more of the same from mother nature over the weekend. Come on out and bring the family and share in the action.

It was a picture perfect day for whale watching today!

Here is our flagship vessel Ocean Dreaming 2 meeting up with a couple of humpbacks off the eastern suburbs of Sydney.

Next cruise departs in similar conditions tomorrow at 11:00 from Darling Harbour and 11:30 from Circular Quay.

I wanna go on that boat

A quiet watch got briefly spicy with this great tail throw that was, although impressive, a little too close to the photographer. Hope you enjoy the pic anyway.

Catch you all tomorrow, fingers crossed for some more action from our blubbery buddies.

Great to see some sunshine again after a couple of miserable days here is Sydney.

We caught up with a whale who was.... asleep... for a little while just floating on the surface not going anywhere.

He did wake up eventually and had a close look at our boat before starting to swim north again.

The weather looks great for the next few days, so we are looking forward to more sunshine, and of course, more whales!

Another great day of whale watching with plenty of breaches in the afternoon. πŸš€

As we said in our last post, sloppy sea conditions seem to get the whales excited and those were exactly the sea conditions we had for the day! πŸ˜…

We may have some more photos for you soon as our photographers are still sorting through hundreds of shots they got today!

Fingers crossed for tomorrow's cruises!

Another great shot from yesterdays cruises sent in by one of our regulars @wongymark1 (look him up on Instagram)

Similar day today with slightly sloppy sea conditions, which quite often brings out the best in the whales, so fingers crossed for more breaches! 🀞

A great morning for action out on the Tasman. A little bit of chop meant it was party time for these two pods on our AM cruise. 🀘🀘 ... See MoreSee Less

Today we watched two humpback whales off Maroubra and Bondi Beach, but we still have some great video to show you from our whale an dolphin encounter from yesterday, so we will go with that instead.

This was one of the best interactions between the two species we ever had with them playing with each other for more than an hour!

You just never know what you will see on a whale watching cruise! We have been doing this for many years and still get to see something we have not seen before!

Who knows what we will get tomorrow?!

Next cruise departs from Darling Harbour at 11:00 and Circular Quay at 11:30 tomorrow.

YAY, we got our first breach this afternoon! πŸš€

We watched 3 whales just off Manly Beach and followed them all the way to Long Reef.

It was a great cruise as about 50 Bottlenose Dolphins came over to say hello to the whales and all sorts of chaos ensued with tail slaps, pectoral fin slaps, dolphins leaping over whales and close encounters as they were zigging and zagging all over the place!

Hopefully more of the same on our next cruise tomorrow!
