We got a great deal through Book Me, which made the trip even more pleasing. The boat was stylishly decorated and we were served a tasty lunch with good variety. The salmon salad was a highlight. From the moment we got onto the boat we received excellent customer service from the staff including the captain. There was an informative presentation given on the whales and their calves throughout the trip. On our day out we were blessed to see at least 6 whales/calves breaching and splashing about. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.

A whale of a time!

We enjoyed a lovely cruise out of Sydney Harbour while dining on a delicious hot buffet lunch. Then the whale watching began in earnest and we were lucky enough to almost immediately spot a pair inside the harbour heads. The crew provided interesting information on the whales and we able to spot several.

The vessel is comfortable and the meal is good. Have to thank the Captain - Mr Sean Gordon, he must be an experienced captain , he anchored at a very good spot so all of us can enjoy seeing the whales jumping up closely. Moreover, the price is really reasonable and my friend n I have spent a nice day at the sea . The crew members are very sincere too. I have already introducing my friends this is a MUST Do Tour and can be booked with our website! Thank you Captain Sean! You made my trip so wonderful !😊
