2021 Whale Watching Season commences 22 May 2021 and ends 31 October 2021.
Whale watching at its very best. Cruise aboard with full commentary and whale guarantee – see a whale or cruise again for free.
Sydney’s coastline is a playground for Humpbacks between May and October. Their antics include breaches, tail slapping and even a close-up wink when they are feeling extra curious. You may also see Southern Rights, Orcas and Minke whales, playful dolphins, seals, fairy penguins, albatross and more.
Humpback sightings have continued to increase every year and these amazing mammals just love to show off with breaches, tail slapping and even a close up wink when they are feeling extra curious. Don’t miss this extraordinary opportunity to see the gentle giants of the sea on their annual migration.
