2Hr Whale Watching Express Cruise

Are you ready to have a whale of a time? Then hop on this 2-hour whale watching cruise in Sydney which treats you to an oceanic adventure that’s guaranteed to make a splash!

Step aboard the ‘Fantasea Crystal’ and head out of Sydney Harbour to  catch sight of the majestic whales, who steal the show with their impressive acrobatics! Reaching the open ocean in less than 15 minutes, there is minimal time spent on the harbour and more on the open ocean! 

More than 30,000 Humpbacks swim along the NSW coast during their annual migration. This means you don’t need to look hard to find a Humpback Whale near the harbour entrance.

With a seated sundeck, a shaded rear deck and large windows, you can enjoy uninterrupted views of the incredible whale antics – all the breaching, tail slapping, spyhopping, lobtailing and more. 

The crew onboard adds more fun to the experience by regaling you with facts and tales about these giant swimmers and their habits. If you’re really lucky, you may spot more than just whales – dolphins, sea birds, seals and more! So be camera-ready at all times! 

Snacks and other refreshments can be purchased from the bar on board. And if no whales are sighted on your tour, enjoy a free return cruise!

Whether you’re a traveller visiting for a couple of days, or a local looking to do something off the grid with the entire family, this Fantasea whale watching experience is a must-do! Book your seats today!
