Manly Whale Watching

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Manly Whale Watching provides Sydney and Northern Beaches whale watching enthusiasts with the ultimate location to whale watch in Sydney. The Manly Whale Watching base is located only five to 15 minutes away from prime whale spotting territory, depending on the type of vessel you choose. Tours range from one to three hours on board anything from a high speed off shore adventure vessel, a luxury sailing boat, to a large capacity power cruiser, depending on your preference.

No matter the vessel type or tour length, Sydney is the ideal venue to join a whale watching tour, as over 3000 whales migrate past, and even into, Sydney Harbour every year. This allows for a very high whale spotting percentage every trip. Manly Whale Watching caters for the more adventurous soul who is looking for a powerful and personalised experience.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
