Here are some more fantastic photos taken just off Manly Beach by one of our regulars over the weekend!

Whale Watching Sydney Do you think there are still likely to be sightings on the very last cruise of the season (Nov 14th)?

Gail Campbell - the whales were breaching in Sydney!

Clinton Christopher Runturambi pretty please 🙏

Adventurous day of whale watching with this little calf keeping us company not far from the harbour entrance on our 12:40 express cruise. 😍

Impressive pictures taken by one of our resident whale addicts Mark 😆

Some more photos from a truly epic day of whale watching taken by one of our other serial whale watchers Adam.

A definite 10/10 in anyone's book with a mother and calf breaching for the entire time we watched them!

Lets hope we get a few more trips like this before our season ends on the 14th of November!

Happy Monday everyone! :)

We had a big weekend of whale watching with some very big breaches indeed! 😳

This shot was taken by one of our regulars Mark onboard our 3pm Express Cruise on Sunday afternoon. 

Still good numbers of whales, which we should have for the next 2 or 3 weeks before the season slowly winds down. 

Our next cruises are heading out this coming weekend, so if you have not had your whale fix yet, get in before they are gone until May 2022.

Throwback to a very good day of whale watching a couple of seasons ago with a very entertaining mother and calf keeping us company!

After a few days on the sidelines we will be back out there tomorrow and are definitely hoping for something similar as there are still good numbers of mothers and calves coming down our coastline.

It was absolutely amazing! We’ve been very lucky 🐋

Bit keen sitting in a rubber dinghy.

Are you guys going to contact people who had cruises booked during lockdown or do we need to call?

Wow that looks amazing. Xx

What if it gets nudged by a whale?

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.

Excellent pics 🙌 But your interpretation of the whales' behaviour as "shy" and "excited" is anthropomorphism - I.e. attributing human emotions to wild mammals.

Amazing humpback whale 🐋 🐳!!

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.
