Enjoy Sydney sightseeing, this is Sydneys only true 3 in 1 whale watching cruise. Including a city sights cruise with commentary on Sydneys history both past and present, BBQ lunch and whale watch experience on the ultimate Sydney Harbour cruise. Relax while you see the sights of Sydney from the water as you cruise around Sydney Harbour and dine on a bbq buffet lunch or breakfast served on board. Then head out into the open sea to go whale watching, pass through the Sydney Harbour Heads. Your crew will help you locate the whales and provide informative commentary on the whales. These giants of the sea once nearly hunted to extinction, it is believed in history the humpback population was once as low as 200 whales. The conservation of these beautiful animals has led to the humpback population being at a safe level to avoid extinction. Numbers are restricted on this whale-watching cruise, with plenty of room inside and out for viewing in comfort on board your spacious sightseeing vessel.

After departing from Sydney’s King Street Wharf, sit back and relax as your leisurely sightseeing cruise on Sydney Harbour begins. Take in views of Sydney’s iconic landmarks from the water, including the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Royal Botanic Gardens and Kirribilli House.

While enjoying views of Elizabeth Bay, Double Bay and other tucked-away beaches and coves, dine on a delicious BBQ lunch or breakfast served on board. Make your choice from the extensive buffet, with alcoholic drinks available to purchase (own expense).

After lunch or breakfast, cruise through the Sydney Harbour Heads, passing the sights of Manly Beach and the rocky cliffs of Watsons Bay and The Gap. Keep a lookout for whales as you leave the harbor and enter the Pacific Ocean, and your guided whale-watching cruise begins.

Listen to commentary as you catch sight of humpback whales performing acrobatics or you may even see magnificent southern right whales, a pod of shiny black-and-white orca whales, or the largest creature on the planet, the blue whale.

Beautiful day with many whales--we were lucky. Waters were rough--plan on taking seasickness medication before you are on the water or you will feed your breakfast to the whales.
