2 Overview

Whale Watching Sydney's 3hr Discovery Cruise is the best whale watching cruise in Sydney, combining high speed with 3 levels of viewing decks onboard the custom built, large catamarans.

Thanks to the high top speed (almost 30kts) of the vessel, it only takes 15 minutes from Circular Quay to the open ocean. That means less travel time through the harbour and more time watching whales compared to other, slower boats.

Board the Sydney's largest purpose-built whale watching vessel and enjoy unobstructed views from spacious wrap around decks over 3 levels. Check out the open top sun deck, providing 360 degrees of viewing!

Whale Watch in comfort with air-conditioned cabins with large windows and great indoor and outdoor seating.

Tea, coffee and bottled water are included in this cruise. Additional drinks are available for purchase from the onboard licensed bar. The vessels and toilets are wheelchair accessible. If no whales are successfully watched on your cruise, you receive a free return cruise.
