About
Sydney's best value whale watching cruise. We are the only Sydney whale watching company that offers live commentary alongside a luxury whale watching experience. Your memorable experience will begin as soon as you step on board! We cruise down Sydney Harbour, passing Sydney's world-famous city highlights before entering the ocean to sight spectacular whale activity. Our whale watching package includes a BBQ Lunch, cooked fresh on the day! The cruise runs for 4 hours and is a family owned and operated business that has been running for 19 years. Whale watching is an exciting experience and we believe everyone should try it at least once in their life. Most importantly, we are a registered COVID safe business!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a shame the tour guide referred to the Aboriginal flag as ‘Australia’s Indigenous flag’.
Australia has two ‘Indigenous’ flags being the Aboriginal and the Torres Strait Islander flag. Indigenous being a collective term for both cultural backgrounds. Be great to be a bit more culturally informed and appropriate when promoting tourism and Australia facts to visitors.

Fantastic tour and great way to see Sydney and the areas surrounding the harbor. The tour guide was fantastic and enjoyable. Only complaint I'd have is the boat could use more speakers and could be louder. At some points on the boat it was difficult to hear the tour guide. But overall a fantastic excursion.

We didn't go with any expectations but had a great time. The commentary was entertaining and the trip was longer than I thought it would be.

We had our adult son with us and he really enjoyed seeing everything and learning about the sites. It was very hot that day and an afternoon cruise around the harbor was nice and cool.

Lovely cruise which shows you all of downtown Sydney by boat, the main skyscrapers look lovely, as well as Sydney opera house and the harbour bridge. It’s also useful as you can note down which other sites you want to see such as the botanical garden and luna park.

Ron was very informative and the crew was helpful. We had a great tour from the top deck of the boat. This was our first day in Sydney so it also helped us orient ourselves w the city and neighborhoods.
