    Jump aboard Sydney’s most exciting and personalised whale watching experience! You’ll be taken on an exciting and unforgettable journey to see the whales in their natural habitat on a giant purpose-built, military spec, fast boat.

    After punching through the heads and into the Tasman Sea, you’re taken on a high-speed cruise to see the whales – your skipper is in constant contact with other boat drivers to find the most friendly and approachable whale pods.

    The experience operates between May and November, departing from Circular Quay.

    Incredible company to go whale watching with! I work on whale watching boats in America and from experience these guys are the real deal! They are respectful and ethical, they are knowledgeable and genuinely want to make everyone enjoy their time on the water. I cannot thank them enough for the experience I had while I was in Sydney.

    Love, love, love ! We go every year and it's always amazing. I highly recommend the trip and they guarantee that you will see a whale. If you don't see it, they will issue you a voucher for the same season. It's magical. I highly recommend it. It's much better than those big boats

    It was an incredible experience! The pod we followed was a small one made up of 2 whales but we got plenty of breaches and fin slapping. We were fortunate enough to have a beautiful sunny weather with no clouds in the sky (we did the 8 am session). Our guide entertained us with interesting whale facts during the downtime as well. You also get a good view of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House on the way. Definitely a highlight of our trip to Sydney.

    An Unforgettable Adventure: Adrenaline, Whales, and Stunning Views! I have made this an annual tradition for my birthday! The timing couldn't have been more perfect, coinciding with the majestic whales' migration to the north. It's incredible to witness these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat during such a special time of the year. I can't wait to experience this magical adventure again and again as a birthday treat. I had the most exhilarating experience of my life with a ride that surpassed all expectations. From start to finish, this adventure was worth every dollar spent, leaving me with unforgettable memories and a sense of awe. The ride began with an adrenaline rush like no other as we zoomed towards the ocean. The thrill of the speed combined with the wind in my hair created an immediate sense of excitement. Riding into the vast expanse of the ocean was a breathtaking experience that took my breath away. It felt like I was part of something extraordinary, surrounded by the infinite blue. But what made this adventure truly exceptional was the opportunity to witness majestic whales up close. As we glided through the ocean, these magnificent creatures swam alongside us, their immense presence leaving me in awe. It was a surreal and blissful moment, connecting with nature in such a profound way. The feeling of being in harmony with these gentle giants was simply indescribable. The return journey was equally mesmerising, as we soaked in the captivating views of the beautiful side of the harbour bridge. The combination of the sparkling water, the iconic bridge, and the scenic surroundings painted a picture-perfect setting. It was a feast for the eyes and a reminder of the stunning beauty that lies within our own backyard. The ride was not only thrilling but also conducted with utmost professionalism and safety. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and passionate about providing an exceptional experience. Their attention to detail and dedication to ensuring the well-being of both passengers and marine life was commendable. Overall, I cannot recommend this adventure enough. If you're seeking an adrenaline-pumping ride, a close encounter with whales, and breathtaking views of the harbour bridge, this experience is an absolute must. It is worth every dollar for the memories and emotions it will evoke. Prepare to be captivated, exhilarated, and filled with a profound appreciation for the wonders of nature. I greatly appreciate your consistent delivery of extraordinary experiences, and the inclusion of pictures adds an extra touch of delight, allowing me to cherish those memories for a lifetime.
