I cant think of many things more amazing than having a 50 ton humpback breach right beside your boat! Here is one from a few years back, which just about matches todays weather in Sydney. 

9 weeks to go until our season kicks off in mid May! 

Tickets are on sale now and you can save yourself 20% with our early bird special.

I love that, my dream is to have a trip with you

I so want to be there.

Remember when we were watching whales off the Sydney Opera House? 🐳

Typically whales dont 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 😜

I saw a dead whale in the Harbour near Rose Bay a couple of years ago. So sad. It was never reported in the news.

I have seen orcas in the harbour at times to,up near the opera house and gardens

Now there is a great photo!

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 :)

Another classic from a few years back! 

The whale was breaching maybe five, six times and it never quite lined up with the kayaker, until the very last breach πŸ₯³ 

We managed to find the guy in the kayak through Facebook and gave him the photos. What a great experience it must have been for him!

A little over 9 weeks to go until our whale watching season kicks off again on the 15th of May.

Another one missed Elyssa King πŸ˜‚

10 weeks until our whale watching season kicks off again! 😎

What better way to get you in the mood than to share some of our most memorable moments from past seasons.

How about this humongous humpback launching itself out of the water right next to our smaller vessel Totally Wild on one of our 2hr Adventure Cruises. 😳

Cant wait to experience this again....!

Our Humpback friends are almost back in Antarctica ready for their summer feeding frenzy. We said goodbye to them over the weekend as we wrapped up our 2020 season πŸ‘‹

With 2020 proving to be a year like no other, we're very grateful to have been able to spend some quality time with our whale friends! πŸ‹

Thank you to everyone who joined us throughout the season, we hope to see you again next year! 🀩

Enjoy these highlights from the season πŸ’₯

They are so beautiful and amazing g to watch ❀️

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. 😎

book online www.whalewatchingsydney.com.au or give us a call on  1800 326 822 if you want to come along for your last chance to see whales this 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 :)
