    Sydney Whale Watching

    3.5 hour Whale Watching cruises Depart from Darling Harbour, Sydney and pass many of Sydney’s famous landmarks on our way out the Heads to take you whale watching. On weekends the Harbour is alive with colourful sailing boats and your cruise will take you past Luna Park, the Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay, Sydney Opera House, Kirribilli House, Fort Dennison, Bradley’s Head and the waterfront mansions of Point Piper! Once out past Sydney Heads the fun really begins as we search for the wonderful Humpback Whales migrating past.

    Each year thousands of Humpback Whales migrate along the East coast of Australia. They migrate from their summer feeding grounds in Antarctica to their breeding grounds in Queensland's Coral Sea. This brings them past Sydney during the months May, June, July and August. Witnessing their amazing size and majesty up close should be on everyone's must-do list!

    With a little help from our land based spotters we will hopefully have you with the whales in no time at all. The majority of the whales migrating past are Humpback whales but you may also have the chance to see other whales like Southern Rights, Minkes, Bryde’s, Blue and Orcas and marine life like dolphins, sea turtles, Australian Fur Seals, a bounty of sea birds and more from the boat. 

    Our Skippers are very experienced and have a deep love and knowledge of the whales. They enjoying sharing their passion for whales and are always happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Whilst all efforts will be made to ensure that your whale experience is an enjoyable one it is important to remember that these whales are wild animals. They do not perform on cue! A range of whale behaviours may be viewed including fluke up dives, tail slapping, pectoral fin slapping, spy hopping, breaching, tail throws. We are committed to minimising the disturbance that our whale watching cruises make to the whales we are watching.

    The vessel: Join us aboard MV True Blue, a custom-built 16 metre Super Sea Cat with three unobstructed 360 degree viewing decks. She has comfortable indoor lounge cabin seating as well as outdoor seating and complete walk around lower decks allowing you to get so much closer to the whales. The upper deck offers a great vantage point for photographers. We are committed to minimising our impact upon the environment with an efficient fuel burn and extremely low engine emissions.

AMAZING dolphins and 6 whales. 1a family. We saw 2whale beaching in the far distence two boats took off we stayed. I was not happy with that THEN HERE THEY CAME 3 OF THEM SO SO CLOSE TO THE BOAT I FORGOT TO TAKE PICTURES now i WAS SO GLAD WE STAYED. HOW AMAZING WAS THAT. We had a little extra time due to whales being around us. on the way back the nature all around us was great. Thank you for an amazing experience.

    Due to some late comers our departure was held up for nearly 23 min. Despite of that we had a good time in our adventure. It was a beautifull day for us to be out on a boat on an open seas. Initial intro out where the boarding process was hard to hear due to lot of people sanding out in the line. We had difficulty hearing what he was saying. We wish he used the PA system once we got on board.

    Thanks very much to Adrenalin and Whale Watching Sydney for our fantastic whale watching trip outside Sydney Heads. We gifted and shared the trip as a surprise gift to our good friends - a Korean couple - who were overjoyed to have their honeymoon visit to Sydney blessed by calm seas, breaching whales, dancing dolphins and perfect blue skies over the Emerald City. To cap it all off someone organised for one of the Royal Australian Navy's Collins Class submarines to surface and sail past on it's way into Sydney as an incredible backdrop to the sight of the amazing breaching whales. The crew aboard were fabulous and willing to assist passengers in anyway possible. Also thoroughly enjoyed the commentary with extensive details about the history, migration behaviours and risks faced by whales worldwide. To cap it all off we enjoyed piping hot tea and coffee and some delicious fruit and fruit cake to keep the energy levels up. I would thoroughly recommend the Adrenalin Whale Watching Sydney adventure. As a footnote just check the Sydney Coastal weather forecast before you go to choose days with optimum sea, weather and wind conditions. We did this and we could not have hoped for a better day. Thanks very much to all involved! :-)
