An exhilarating whale-some experience

Watch the humpback whale migration unfold right in front of your eyes as you sail from Sydney Harbor to the open Pacific Ocean onboard a catamaran in 20 minutes. Zip through the harbor to the main ocean with top knot speed — that means less travel time through the harbor and more time watching whales. Marvel at the iconic sights of Sydney on your way, sailing past the Sydney Harbor Bridge, the Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison National Park, and Shark Island. The main attraction awaits as your captain will take you to the best spots out in open water to see the humpback whales in all their glory, so don't forget your camera!

Whale-watching: education and information all rolled into one!

Your whale-watching experience is much more than just a tour as your crew on this cruise are experienced and will delve into the significance of the humpback whales and their annual autumn migration to warmer waters in the Pacific. Discover facts about the Pacific and marine life with multimedia presentations on screens that you can enjoy from the comfort of a climate controlled cabin, or viewing decks onboard. Happy whale watching!
