Whale watching at its very best! Cruise aboard a great vessel with full commentary and whale guarantee - see a whale or cruise again for free.

Sydney’s coastline is a playground for Humpbacks between May and October. Their antics include breaches, tail slapping and even a close-up wink when they are feeling extra curious.
