YES! It feels so great to finally get to see some whales again! They were a bit shy on our first two cruises, but were very excited to see us in the afternoon 😆

Plenty of them out there with easily 20-30 spotted over our 3 cruises, so we should have some more great cruises over the next 4-5 weeks before the season ends.

Tomorrow's cruises are all booked out, but we just added some additional departures next Friday and will be heading out over the weekends as well.

Book online at www.whalewatchingsydney.com.au or redeem your Dine & Discover vouchers by calling us on 1800 326 822.

Wow! So spectacular 😍

In anticipation of our first cruises this weekend here is another throwback to a great trip from a couple of years ago.

Weather forecast is just about perfect as all this rain will have eased by Saturday & Sunday and we are expecting some moderate westerly winds which are PERFECT for whale watching as waves will stay pretty small, but whales tend to put on a bit of a show! Especially with the number of mothers and calves we have off the coast at the moment!

You heard it here first, but we are predicting some breaches!! :)

Our midday cruises are now sold out, but we still have some room on our 10:00 and 15:00 cruises.

Here is a throwback to almost exactly one year ago when we came across this little humpback putting on a show not far from the harbour entrance!

We can't wait to take you whale watching from this weekend again and as our cruises have been selling fast, we just added a 3rd departure at 10:00am as well! 😎

Some more tomfoolery from the same pod of 4 we came across yesterday between Bondi Beach and Bronte. :)

7 days to go until we can finally take you whale watching again! It should be a great 6 weeks of whale watching with the southern migration being in full swing now, with hundreds of mothers and calves cruising past every day.

We will have to wait another week until we can take you whale watching again, but here is some drone footage we got just then of a pretty relaxed pod of 4!

We spotted about a dozen whales not far from Bondi Beach, which means we should have some excellent whale watching once we are allowed to take you out again.

First cruises are heading out on the 16th of October and you can book online at www.whalewatchingsydney.com.au.

And yes, we do accept Dine & Discover vouchers. Just give us a call on 1800 326 822 to redeem them.

See you all out there very soon! 😎
