Enjoy live commentary & learn more about these giant mammals

The on board whale expert will enlighten you on all the whale movements like tail slaps, breaches and more. If you are lucky, see baby whales learn important life skills through playtime from their mothers. 

Spot Humpback, Southern Right, Orca and Minke whales in the open seas on board this whale watching cruise from Sydney. These magnificent creatures put up a fantastic show with fluke dives, peduncle throws, tail slaps and more, completely oblivious to the fact that they are being watched. It’s as natural as it gets; there are no rehearsals and no replays! Learn from the on board expert marine biologist about whale behaviour as well. 

Whale watching season in Sydney begins in May and goes on till November. From May to August, Humpbacks and other whale species pass Sydney as they migrate northward before winter arrives. These mammals swim from the Southern Ocean past Sydney to reach the warmer climes that are suitable for breeding. Later, these whales migrate back with their new-born calves towards the Antarctic feeding ground, and pass by Sydney again!

A morning departure from Sydney Harbour ensures you are greeted by roving views of the harbour and its attractions, giving you ample photo ops with the Opera House and Harbour Bridge as you move out into the open seas. 

Spot pods of these gigantic mammals ranging from Humpbacks, Southern Right, Orca and Minke Whales. The showstoppers are the Humpbacks though, who will take centre-stage.

If it’s not your lucky day and you couldn’t spot a single whale on your trip, you can avail a free cruise with the operator during the same season.
