    Exciting trip out to the sea. We were able to spot some whale calf and the weather was great. Not for the faint-hearted as the journey was quite bumpy. Overall will recommend it to others if you are in the city during the season to go and watch the whale. Thumbs up to the Captain as well

What To Expect

Sail out to the Pacific off Sydney's shores to sight humpback whales on their annual migration. Three varieties of tour are available, so you can select the cruise that best suits you and your travel companions best. The premium 3 hour Discovery Cruise has state of the art technology, comfortable indoor/outdoor seating located at the fore and aft, and multi level viewing on 3 decks. It gives you the longest possible time to sight and enjoy the whales' activities. A more personal experience is offered by the 2 hour Adventure Cruise, which s for small group sizes, getting right up close to the whales as they splash and play. Or maybe you want to make a full day of it, with a 3 Hour Discovery Tour combined with a Hop On Hop Off Eco-hopper combo that will not just have you enjoying the whale sighting, but also allow you to use the Eco Hopper or Manly Fast Ferry services to travel between various stations, bays, and wharfs. This allows you to sightsee around Sydney with ease. All cruises include professional commentary from actual naturalists and scientists, so you get to know the whales better. Select the option best for you and have a great time watching the world's most incredible sea mammals in their natural habitat.

  • Yin Keung 15 Aug 2018
    It is an amazing experience. Everyone got extremely excited when finding the whale. A family of whales swam closely together. They are giant. The bridged over the sea surface.
  • Dana 26 Jun 2018
    Terrible service provided by klook, the pickup details on my voucher stated pick up at circular quay, turned out to be at darling harbour. Even the staff on the ground had a hard time figuring out pickup location. Contacted the customer service but all I received was multiple generic replies. Best to just book directly at the counters from the ports, trips are cheaper or cost the same.

    The tour guide was very good. I went to the sea to try my best to find the whale trail. I waited for half an hour and finally saw the whale. Even if someone was dizzy and vomiting on the way, they were very patient. The scenic spots will be suspended to take photos of the group members.

    Very fun, the instructor is good at telling the location of the whale, and also arrives at Haikou on time.

    It is easy to get on the boat, and people who are prone to stun are definitely not suitable. This time, there are 2 whales coming out of the sea.
