A giant adventure awaits you on this whale watching cruise from Sydney, spotting Humpback, Southern Right, Orca and Minke whales in the open seas! Get the best seats to see all the whale-action as they go about their unannounced routines of breaches, tail slaps, winks and more. It’s a ‘blink and you miss the action’ scenario when it comes to whale watching cruises; a marine biologist on board will guide you on where to point your eyes as well as impart interesting information about these giant mammals.   

Your cruise leaves Sydney Harbour by noon, starting you off with roving views of the Sydney Harbour and its attractions. See the Opera House and Harbour Bridge and make most of the photo ops as your cruise sails by the eastern suburbs to move out to the open seas. 

It won’t be long before you start to spot whales spraying water through their blowholes and gently breaking the surface. Spot pods of these gigantic mammals ranging from Humpbacks, Southern Right, Orca and Minke Whales. The showstoppers of the show — the Humpbacks, will take center stage, showing off with everything from breaches & tail slaps to even a sneaky wink at times!

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 cross Sydney and Southern Ocean to reach the warmer climes due North that are suitable for breeding. Later, these whales migrate back with their newborn calves towards the Antarctic feeding ground, passing by Sydney again as they return. The odds of spotting whales increase massively during the whale watching season, enabling you to appreciate these gentle giants up close! 

If you choose to cruise during the second half of the season, you may also see mother whales guiding their young to make their first migration to the Southern Ocean. See how the whale calves enjoy their playtime as their mothers coach them on different life skills.

If it’s not your lucky day and you don’t spot a single whale on your trip, you can avail a free trip with the operator during the same season.
 
Go for this exciting whale watching cruise by the Captain and see the gentle giants of the ocean up-close!
