Step aboard a specially designed whale watching vessel and set sail across the deep blue waters of Sydney Harbour in search for whales. You will cruise from the calm waters of the harbour, out past Sydney Heads. The most common visitors are humpback whales, often with calves, and southern right whales. Killer whales and the even rarer albino humpback have also been spotted in recent years. The vessels all have extensive outdoor areas, for the best viewing opportunities, some with 360 degree viewing decks. Departing from Sydney, choose a Port Stephens day tour including a dolphin watch cruise. These cruises in the pristine waters of Port Stephens on the central NSW coast often sight dolphins, seals and sea birds.
