This is Sydney’s only whale watching cruise offering a lunch buffet and harbour cruise included in your whale watch experience.

Seeing these giant mammals of the sea has the ability to change your whole view on life. The gracefulness, the peacefulness, the playfulness, the curiosity, the showmanship and the awesome power of a humpback whale is something everyone should witness in their lifetime.

Whale watching is an exhilarating adventure, seeing these incredible creatures frolicking and swimming in the ocean is an awe-inspiring treat that you will remember forever! Breaching, tail slaps, spy hopping, fluke dives and peduncle throws are all some of the great moves you may see from the whales on their migrations.

The whale population is increasing each year and this year there are 16,000 plus whales expected to migrate past Sydney, which gives great opportunity to see them as Sydney is on their migration routes. Whale watching season runs from May-November. During May - August the whales are on their Northern migration and then from mid August - September they are on their southern migration back to the Antarctic along with their new born calves, the little calves are just gorgeous.

This is the only whale watching tour operator in Sydney Harbour who offers an excellent half day tour including a BBQ lunch, specialising in whale watching tours. You will hear informative commentary and be taken care of by the fully trained and expert crew on-board. During lunch you can purchase drinks from the licensed bar and vegetarian and specific dietary requirements can be catered for with sufficient notice.

You will also receive our 100% Guarantee that if you don't see whales you will be offered a return trip free of charge for use within the next 3 years (conditions apply).

These great value whale watching tours cater to all ages and children from 5 years are very welcome. Get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures of the sea.
