Great news: The weather forecast for the 26th of December looks fantastic, so we will have great conditions for our Boxing Day Cruises! ☀️

And due to popular demand we have added two extra cruises departing from Darling Harbour and Manly.

If you missed out before, here is your chance to be part of one of the most exciting days on Sydney Harbour and beyond as we watch the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race on the harbour and then follow the fleet offshore and head down the coast along the eastern beaches of Sydney.

Our Whale Watching season may have finished, but Boxing day and our Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race cruises are now only 2 weeks away!

Boxing Day is one of the most exciting days on Sydney Harbour, and there’s no better way to enjoy it than on one of our Boxing Day cruises departing from Circular Quay, Darling Harbour and Manly.

Join us on December 26 as we get amongst the action of the Rolex Sydney to Hobart yacht race, with front row seats watching the start in the harbour and then chasing the fleet out of the heads as far down south as Maroubra!

Friends and family of race crew are most welcome! We attempt to work back through the fleet once out of the harbour to say a final farewell all those with loved ones on boats heading south.

Does this include gift vouchers or only bookings?

Our season may be coming to an end next weekend, but that doesnt mean we are not having some great cruises still!

Here are some great breaches captured today by one of our regulars Mark plus a bonus breach from a couple of days ago we didnt get to share with you yet!

One more week to go, with our last cruises of the 2023 season heading out on the 12th of November.Image attachmentImage attachment

We were back out whale watching again after sea conditions had calmed down enough with both Thursday and Friday wiped out by strong winds and large waves!

We spent some time watching this mother and calf frolic off the northern beaches with both of them tail and pectoral fin slap their way back towards Antarctica.

2 more weeks before the season ends, so get your whale fix if you have not had one yet...!

An impressive display of head lunges kept us in awe on our whale watching cruises today!

The wind and waves crept up during the day, which quite often results in some super active whales!

Unfortunately it will get much worse over the next 2 days, forcing us to cancel some of our cruises.

Everything should be back to almost comfortable by the weekend, so we should be back out there then.

A little over 2 weeks to go before the season ends!

A solid day of whale watching with quite a few breaches seen from this little calf on our afternoon cruise!

The wind picked up and somehow that seems to get them jumping.
Similar conditions tomorrow, so fingers crossed for a lot of action!

A reminder that our weekday 3hr Discovery Cruises are currently 20% off until the end of the season, which is now less than 4 weeks away.

Get your whale watching fix while you still can! 😎

We saw some fantastic tails on our cruises today!

We are still seeing some great whale numbers, but if you have not been out with us yet, you need to hurry up.

Our season ends in Mid November, so a little under 4 weeks left to go before the last whales will have passed Sydney.

We have a great weekday special on our 3hr Discovery Cruise at the moment. Save 20% with promo code weekday20
