3Hr Whale Watching Discovery Cruise - Darling Harbour

4.5 based on all time ratings

Meet the gentle giants of the ocean up close and witness the grandeur and magnificence of these creatures of the marine world. As the Humpback and Southern Right whales migrate to warmer waters of the north, this adventure cruise offers a rare opportunity to catch the whales in action in their natural habitat, out in the open sea.

Hear their baleful songs on our hydrophone (Fantasea is the only whale watching boat in Sydney to have this technology on board). Our on-board marine biologist will also impart interesting information about the whales and their behavioural patterns.

Humpback whales are very acrobatic and boisterous in showing off their skills, so be prepared for those breaches and tank slappers that may catch you off guard. Everyone on board gets a view as we avoid overcrowding on our boats; so be rest assured, front row seats are a given.

Treat yourself to an unbelievable whale watching cruise experience! Fantasea has a superb success rate of spotting these whales as they frolic in the ocean, and if for some reason it’s not your lucky day, your next whale watching cruise with Fantasea Adventure Cruising will be absolutely free! 

The same whale watching cruise is also available in the afternoon.
