Itinerary

Whale Watching cruises are an extraordinary opportunity to see the gentle giants of the sea on their annual migration. Your cruise begins at Circular Quay, Sydney Harbour and makes its way past the Opera House, the beautiful eastern suburbs and outside the Harbour headlands to open water. Southern Right, Orca and Minke Whales all visit Sydney's coastline, but it's the Humpbacks that come in great numbers and love to show off with breaches, tail slaps and even a sneaky wink when they are feeling extra curious.

Stop At:

• Sydney Harbour, Sydney, New South Wales Australia
• Captain Cook Cruises, No. 6 Circular Qy, Sydney, New South Wales 2000 Australia
• Circular Quay, Sydney, New South Wales 2000 Australia

We went on this tour with our two children. Despite the boat being very rocky in the open ocean, none of the passengers got seasick. Anticipation and excitement filled the boat and the entire experience was just amazing! By God's grace, we got to see not just one whale, but a mother whale teaching and/or playing with her calf. It was just out of this world!

We were lucky enough to be visiting Sydney, Australia when the whales were migrating! We saw several whales just outside of Sydney Harbor breach, splash down, and flip their tail! It was amazing!

The crew tried their very best to locate the whales. They were informative regarding the whales. We have got a few surprises that we saw dolphins, sealions along the way.

good trip, but unfortunatly, we only see little part of huge whales and we also see their water spring when they breath.

Never experienced such worse customer service. Their prices are higher than locally advertised price and never willing to match the price even after pointing out the low price guaranteed offer! Customer service agent was rude and was arguing.
