Public Holidays are our favourite, and when we have 5 amazing cruises in one day, we love it!

Here are some images from our 3 Express Cruises today, we had breaches on all of them and some very active whales as the sun started setting. The Humpback Highway is seeing a lot of traffic now and we feel very lucky to have these beautiful animals swimming right next to Sydney in such large numbers.

If you'd like to join us, our Discovery Cruises even have 20% off for all of June with the code 'WINTERWHALES'

We hope to see you soon!

What a brilliant morning for whales! πŸ‹

Lots of active pods with tail slaps outside the harbour, some lightning fast breaches, and a nice mugging from a very inquisitive whale!

Not a bad way to spend a Sunday if you ask us!

Back on the humpback highway this afternoon.

Cruising north this time on our 3 hour Discovery cruise we were met with countless pods that were crashing about the waves while on they're journey.

It was an astonishing view with the sound of 30-40 ton smashing down upon the surface of the water!

Wow!

Just this morning on our 3 hour Discovery cruise we left the heads and just as we looked to the horizon, we spotted a pod of whales breaching to the south.
When we arrived at the pod, what we encountered was a huge display followed by a mugging, the whales so close that we had to switch the engines off, sat back and watched the crashing of the humpbacks as they breached nearby.

With the season truly coming into swing with thrilling sights such as this - what can I say, it never gets old seeing breaches like these.

If you look closely at the chin, you can spot the "barnacle beard" πŸ‹

Was a wet start to the day, but we were greeted with sunshine and lots of whale activity as we left the heads upon our 3-hour Discovery cruise this morning.

Lots of tail slapping today!

If you look closely, you will see marine birds (mostly seagulls) swarming the area when whales breach or when they slap they're tails and fins. These marine birds are just looking for a quick bite to eat and the birds know when there's whale activity, there will be food - so if you're on with us it sometimes helps to see where the flock of birds are to spot where the whale is!

Testimonials

  • My experience was amazing I say Whales breaching it was fantastic. And the crew on the boat made my experiences a great and safe place to be.

  • Weather was a bit miserable, but the boat made it comfortable. The crew had their finger on the pulse out there and when whales were spotted by a sister boat, we were taken quickly to a perfect viewing spot. The whales repeatedly breached, including a double breach from the pair. We got great photos and finished the voyage pumped.

  • The boat, crew and overall experience was fabulous! Whales were promised and wow we were blown away, we can’t believe that we saw whales breaching and tail slapping so close we felt at times we could almost touch them.
    This crew have perfected the tour with an onboard Marine Biologist and happy, easygoing but safe attitude.

  • Once we got out of the Harbor, we started seeing whales. They were jumping and feeding and just cruising along side the boat!! The crew were all super friendly and helpful and kept the trip fun and interesting.

  • Must to do with kids. Amazing experience with kids. Must to do if in Sydney. There is big difference watching whale compared to other animals as the shear size of whale and they move is magnificent.
