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! 🐋

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" 🐋

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!

An incredible morning for us today on our 3 Hour Discovery Cruise. We had 4 whales sighted directly out of the Harbour, with a pod of three giving us tail slaps and pectoral fin waves all the way along the North Head. We thought we had hit the jackpot, before a lone whale decided to up the action with a couple of big breaches, and a very close mugging!!

Towards the end of the trip we spotted another pod of 4 whales, as well as couple of solo swimmers. Thats brings our whale count for the morning to 10!

Happy Hump Day!

A Wednesday with 2 Express cruises, and it was a day with whales in all directions. Most of the whales were steadily heading along the coast, but we did get some breaches and a bit more surface activity from a couple of pods. Thanks again to everyone who joined us, and we'll be out again tomorrow for our longer 3-hour discovery cruises, departing from Darling Harbour and Circular Quay.

A day of calm seas and friendly calm whales. The whales were steadily making their way North across the heads today. We spotted numerous whales travelling solo and were lucky to spot a pod on both express cruises.

After the weekend of bad weather, it was a relief to have flat conditions to see the whales.

We hope everyone enjoyed their time with us today and can't wait to see you again soon!
