Product information

What you need to know
Top Tips

This afternoon Sydney Harbour whale watching cruises allows you to both sleep in and see the incredible Humpback and Southern Right Whales up close! Lasting just under 3 hours, you'll be taken for a whale watching tour in one of Australia's most famous locations and with one of Sydney's most reputable cruise operators. With custom built vessels for whale watching cruises, we have more viewing decks than any other Sydney whale watching vessel - don't miss that special moment due to lack of viewing areas. Cruises come with full commentary from experienced marine naturalists or scientists.

The cruises are assisted by shore-based whale spotters giving us the advantage to know where the whales are before we go out, providing a real eco-experience as recognised by independent accreditation and awards - you may also see dolphins, seals and sea birds. If you're after the ultimate Sydney whale watching adventure - without the early morning rise - then book an afternoon tour online today!
