Are you in the mood for a whale watching cruise yet? 8 days to go until the first cruises of the 2021 season are heading out! ๐Ÿณโ›ต

Love this shot from last year with a massive humpback whale gently floating past our boat during a mugging, which is when they come right up to you and swim circles around the boat for hours. ๐Ÿ˜ 

dont forget that we are having a special on all cruises in May: Promo code Save20 gets you 20% off all whale watching cruises in May.

If you are an NRMA Member, you get another 20% off, which means you can go whale watching for as little as $40! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Here are some pictures of the very first humpbacks we saw a few seasons back! With early sightings off our coast already, signs are good for a great start this year. ๐Ÿคฏ

I have never seen whale up closes I have seen them in the distance.

As you might know, Whale Watching Sydney also operates the Manly Fast Ferry service between Manly and Circular Quay.

Our boats go past the harbour entrance dozens of times each day and we are starting to eagerly look for any signs of whales.

We have spotted 2 already in the past couple of weeks and its only a matter of days until our blubbery friends start showing up in larger numbers.

It all begins in 2 weeks ๐Ÿณ

It begins in 16 day! ๐Ÿณ

We are counting down the days until our whale watching season officially starts with our first cruises heading out on the 15th of May. 

Here is one of our favourite tail shots from a couple of years ago. Everybody loves a good breach, but a good upside-down-tailslap is just as impressive.  

One more day to take advantage of our Early Bird Special - 20% off all whale watching cruises with promo code EarlyBird2021.

Do you remember this shot from a couple of years ago? Well, it happened on the 2nd day of our 2017 whale watching season, which just shows that once our season starts, you can have amazing cruises straight away! ๐Ÿณ

You still have another week to take advantage of our Early Bird Special and save 20% on all cruises
