4Hr Whale Watching BBQ Lunch Cruise

Oz operates its whale watching BBQ lunch cruises between the months of July and November, as the onset of winter triggers a mass migration of Humpback whales from the Southern Ocean, up north past Sydney. Watch whales in Sydney onboard this cruise for an up close experience

You’ll first cruise down the magnificent Sydney Harbour during which a hot BBQ buffet lunch will be served to keep you energised for the rest of the tour. Once you’ve feasted your eyes on Sydney Harbour’s picturesque skyline and iconic attractions, you will sail past Sydney Heads into the open sea for an exhilarating whale-watching adventure.

To witness the sheer grace and might of these grand ocean mammals as they frolic in the ocean and display their showmanship with the almighty breach is an awe-inspiring experience that can be compared to no other. Breaching, tail slaps, spy hopping, fluke dives and peduncle throws are some of the fantastic moves effortlessly executed by these whales.

But, if it’s your unlucky day and whales cannot be spotted, you can avail a free trip with us during the same season.

Don’t miss this exhilarating, value-packed Sydney whale watching adventure!
