Tour description provided by Viator

See magnificent humpback and southern right whales at play on a Sydney whale-watching cruise. From Circular Quay this open-water cruise will take you through the entrance of Sydney Harbour and into the open Pacific in search of whales. The open-air viewing decks on board the catamaran offer unobstructed views and the best opportunities for spotting and watching the whales. Getting up close to these gentle giants of the sea is an awe-inspiring experience that you don’t want to miss. With record numbers of whales due to pass along Sydney's coastline this migration season, there are sure to be plenty of sightings and great photo opportunities!

Experience one of nature’s greatest migrations as the humpback and southern right whales of the Pacific Ocean journey between Antarctica and the Great Barrier Reef. During the months of May to October, Sydney’s coastline becomes a playground for these gentle giants. With an estimated 15,000 whales due to pass along Sydney’s coast, this year’s whale migration season promises to be one of the biggest in decades.

Board your boat at Circular Quay and cruise through Sydney Harbour and into the open ocean through Sydney Heads. You'll have the opportunity to see the whales at play, often performing spectacular aerial leaps.

The vessel is custom- built to cruise the open waters, and there is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the sights and look for whales. The outdoor viewing decks offer great views, and the indoor all-weather lounge, provides a comfortable and warm place to relax while out on the open seas.
