This is one of the best experiences you can do in Sydney.
El Capitan Blake was extremely knowledgeable, professional and respectful to the whales.
With the small boat you got pretty close up to the whales, it’s amazing and much more personal experience.
I’ll be back for sure!
A great whale watching experience.

Fun boat ride, knowledgeable skipper, and saw a dozen whales. This was a great experience! I would recommend this tour to everyone.
A fun trip!

Amazing experience!

We were fortunate to see a mother humpback and her calf, which we cruised nearby for multiple sightings. At one point they circled our boat for close up views. We were close enough to see and hear their “blow” when they surfaced. Definitely a wonderful experience.

The speedboat allowed for more time with the whales instead of lengthy travel times back and forth to port. The guide was very informative about the whales and their dive characteristics which helped us to find them again when they surfaced. I would highly recommend this experience with a small caution: You need to be able to lift your leg high enough to sit astride the seat like a motorcycle, so don’t wear a skirt/dress. ENJOY!!
WOW, what a trip!

WOW, what an incredible trip. Blake was an amazing guide, knowledgable and extremely respectful of the whales. We have been travelling around Australia for 3 weeks and this trip was THE highlight (so much so that we booked to go again 2 days later). Would highly recommend this trip! Amazing!
