Blake is an amazing captain. He was very respectful of both the whales and the seals that we saw. However, the highlight of the trip was definitely being on the boat as Blake pounded up and over the waves. An amazing experience, but not for...More

Blake the captain of the 24 person zodiac new exactly where to go and wait, within minutes we had two Humpback Whales coming over to say hi. This was truly worth the money. Cameras are safe just be careful of spray.

Had an amazing time out. So much better being on a faster boat and up close to the ocean. Plus Blake sent fantastic photos the same day and without the usual expense that the big boats charge!! Would recommend highly!

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
