Whale Watching Cruise from Sydney Harbour, 2 hours: This is a 2 hour whale watching tour and fast jet boat ride, possibly the most exciting and most personal whale watching experience available in Sydney. Departing Circular Quay, you will first be taken across the harbour to pick up more passengers from Manly Wharf. There, your captain will run you through the behaviour of the whales and what to look out for when trying to spot them. You will then blast out of the harbour and offshore into the Pacific Ocean on your search for these magnificent creatures. Once located you will have plenty of photo opportunities as you travel alongside the migrating pod.

  1. Denise

    Blake was a great guide and made it exciting and fun. Within 2 hours we saw 5 whales. Being low on the water the boat (RIB) made for a closer look. The boat ride was really fast, at one point we headed straight for the North Head cliffs just to turn before we got too close. So exciting!
    I would recommend the Whale Watching Tour to anyone, it was awesome!

  2. Bec

    Had such a great tour on Friday watching the humpback whales. The speed boat ride was exhilarating, it was exciting to see the whales up close. I would 100% recommend this trip.
