Set out for a whale-ing adventure

Hold onto your hats, because this whale-watching adventure is about to get wild (in the best way possible)!! Hop on an inflatable boat that'll have your heart racing before you even spot a fin! Beginning at the Circular Quay or Manly Wharf in the heart of Sydney, you'll cruise past renowned landmarks like the Opera House before reaching the humpback highway at Sydney Heads! Once you conquer the waves and reach the endless blue expanse of the South Pacific, the real magic begins.

Whale tales

Your friendly skipper will guide you towards the most social and curious pods of whales. You'll witness a wide spectrum of whale activities, from fluke dives and pec slapping to breaching from close. You might even get lucky and see playful calves frolicking alongside their mothers. This isn't just a whale-watching trip; it's an experience that will leave you breathless (except for maybe all the "OMG did you see that?!" chatter). So, skip the ordinary and sign up for an epic adventure with some of the most awe-inspiring creatures on the planet!
