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.
Had a really good day. Staff were informative and helpful. Information for pre travel was well conveyed.
I really enjoyed this adventure. All staff of "Whale Watching Sydney" were very friendly, helpful and entertaining. I will definitely recommend this company to all my friends.
Staff very helpful when I had made an error with redeeming my voucher - fixed it up quickly. Great service and very friendly! Thank you.
my brother in law was partially blind and they were very helpful to all his needs thank you
I was seasick so I didn't enjoy the trip as much I should have. But the staff did warn me about the ocean being wild. I forgot my tablets and I was stubborn (because the staff told everyone you could easily reschedule the trip). Here's one tip: use tablets even though you've never been seasick and wear enough clothes. When I was being sick the staff was very friendly and helpful.
We had a very safe driver, on our way back. Thanks
small boat group which was fun
I have long awaited to see Whales in their natural environment. This was our second attempt and we were not disappointed - thank you so very much. I will definitely return for another trip - next time there will be breaching in addition to what we saw over this weekend.
Even though our boat did not see any whales it was such a pleasant day, the staff were very friendly and willing to accommodate to us all and checking to make sure we were ok (not getting sea sick). I have already recommended this to people since our trip. I was also pleasantly surprised when we were offered to go out again to try and find another whale! This is great! I would give this the highest rating possible, it was such a relaxing and calming day!
The weather was excellent and the sea was smoother than my last visit in mid 2014 at similar time but with another agent. The frequency of the view of the whales are much more this time. The boat and the staff in your team is excellent with a clear explanation during the visit especially Tom and Becca. It is a dllemma if I should promote widely to my friends as more of such trips if not carefully managed will damaged the living environment of whales or nature. However, I will recommend to close friends or relatives. Overall, it was a safe and very enjoyable journey. This was a remarkable visitor experience for Sydney as well. Keep up with the good works and products.
