See Sydney’s sights by sea on a 4-hour whale-watching cruise. Avoid long lines at major attractions, enjoy great Sydney Harbour views, and spot whales and dolphins with informative commentary. This cruise is good for people who want to spend some time on the water and see native marine life in the wild, and experience the city’s landmarks away from the crowds.

What to Expect

Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and meet your ship at King Street Wharf. Board the vessel and enjoy a fresh breakfast or lunch buffet (Tea and coffee are included and alcoholic beverages can be purchased).

Sail through Sydney Harbour and snap photos of the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Next, your boat cruises north past Manly Beach and Watsons Bay, as you enter the open waters of the Pacific Ocean where the whale watching begins.

Thousands of humpback and southern right whales pass through this stretch of Australian coast every year, so whale sightings are guaranteed. In the occurrence that you don’t see one, you can book another cruise free of charge.

It is common to see dolphins and other marine life on the cruise and your captain provides expert commentary on the wildlife you encounter

The cruise ends back at the original departure point.

This was a great experience all around. As others have said, Biggles, the tour guide, makes this tour truly exceptional. You can tell he really loves his job and educating people about the whales as well as Sydney Harbour (he’s also really funny). Biggles and...More

Top quality guides make all the difference!

We took a half-day whale watching trip with Oz during a recent trip to Sydney. We were lucky enough to see 3 whales, one in the harbor and two further out in the ocean. Our guide was passionate about his subject and extremely knowledgeable. We...More
