Leaving from Manly Wharf Three, the closest wharf to the whales, their 2.5 hour whale watching cruise gets you up close and personal to the ocean’s gentle giants and other sea life.

Viewing these majestic creatures in their natural habitat is a once in a life time experience and their Sydney Whale Watching cruise is the best way to see these creatures during their annual migration. Plus, not only do they see whales, often their customers get to experience other marine life such as seals and dolphins!

The boat is perfect for all weather conditions, with drop-down clears to protect from the rain and wind and sunroofs that can open up to embrace the beautiful winter sun. Not only will you be exploring the Sydney harbour, but their captain can cruise you past Sydney’s breathtaking Northern Beaches such as Manly Beach (weather permitted). Your skipper will be in close contact with the other boat drivers to ensure they find the most friendly and approachable pods.

As a bonus there’s complimentary coffee, tea and biscuits with every trip! Plus unlike many other vessels they have toilet facilities and licensed bar on board.
