From Oz Whale Watching and Sydney Harbour Cruise Incl Lunch or Breakfast

Hi Karen, We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed yourself our our BBQ lunch cruise even with the unfortunate situation of not spotting whales. We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a review and can't wait to see you on your return cruise soon! Kind regards, Sydney Princess Cruises / Oz Whale Watching

A unique & worth-while experience.

A beautiful Sydney day added to this fantastic experience. Took a while to find 3 whales but they played around near the boat for some time. Lunch was 3 varieties of salad, sausages & a bread roll, served by crew & seemed a little rushed. Tea & coffee was always available, although not always hot. I guess passenger numbers were lower than usual (Covid?) which made the journey more pleasant. Audio quality was very poor downstairs which would have made it impossible for people for whom English is a second language & even I could only hear about 30 %.. Strongly recommend you take a good anti-histamine or motion sickness tablet 30 minutes before departure. The boat is small & will move around- even in calm seas. Thoroughly recommended on a fine day!

Absolutely Fabulous

When they tell you to take your sea sickness tablets do it! So they don't have to keep telling people over and over. If your sick it is a long trip, you can pick the ones that don't listen and lie. Rant over. We had a sensational time and the knowledge and care this team show is just amazing. We will join you again. Thank you
