Sydney Whale watching. Sydney's best value whale watching Sydney cruise. We are the only Sydney whale watching company that offers live commentary, whale watching experience, a Sydney Harbour cruise and a BBQ buffet lunch all included in the one great package. Prices range from $50 - $94. The cruise runs for 4 hours and is a family owned and operated business that has been running for 15 years. Whale watching can be an exciting experience and we believe everyone should try it at least once in their life.

Hi Klark K, How amazing that you spent so much time with a young pod. Baby calfs are very curious and playful, our office is glad you could enjoy the time with the whales.

We had atrocious weather with huge swells. Despite this the experienced staff were very knowledgable and helpful to those not feeling well. Definitely take sea sickness tablets in rough weather. We saw five whales who were having a wonderful time with mothers and calves breaching....More

A great way to spend an afternoon- informative, exciting and great photo opportunities. I have been on several whale-watching boats throughout Australia, but this was the best. The marine biologist's attempt at whale song was a highlight.

Hi Alex, Thank you rating our Whale Watching Experience as the best yet! We really care about protecting our whales and conserving the environment, if our marine biologists can have fun in between all the better! Hope to see you again next season!

We could see a mother and calf humpback whales playing very close. It was OK for elderly people to stay inside the boat and still be able to enjoy the outside views through the windows.
