Whale Watching Sydney’s 3hr Discovery Cruise is the best whale watching cruise in Sydney, combining high speed with 2 levels of viewing decks onboard  Fantasea Avalon.

Thanks to the high top speed (almost 30kts) of our flag ship vessels, it only takes 15 minutes from Circular Quay to the open ocean. That means less travel time through the harbour and more time watching whales compared to other, slower boats.

Fantasea Avalon is a purpose-built whale watching vessel so you can enjoy unobstructed views from spacious decks over 2 levels.

Whale Watch in comfort with air-conditioned cabins with large windows and great indoor and outdoor seating. Informative commentary by our experienced crew and onboard multimedia presentations ensure you are fully informed of what to look out for so you can make the most out of this unique experience.

Free tea and coffee is served inside Sydney Harbour and during suitable offshore conditions. Additional drinks and snacks are available for purchase from the onboard licensed bar.

If no whales are successfully watched on your cruise, you receive a free return cruise.

Vessel Features

Fantasea Avalon is a modern, fast catamaran with two comfortable air-conditioned cabins and four spacious outdoor viewing areas composed of open mid decks on either side, partially covered mid rear deck, covered lower rear deck and open foredeck.

  • Two levels of outside viewing decks
  • Comfortable cushioned seats
  • High speed vessel for minimal travel time
  • climate controlled cabin
  • multimedia presentations on screens
  • wheelchair accessible
  • Toilets on board (1 disabled)
