Having a whale of a time means singing loudly while slapping water with your arms and forcing water out between your teeth.

Oceanic enthusiasts and happy harbour-lovers bellow excited mock whale calls at the prospect of a seafaring adventure cruise for three hours in Sydney Harbour. Climb aboard one of Sydney Adventure Cruises’ super comfortable, ultra-modern high-speed catamarans for an exciting whale watching trip. Cruise though spectacular Sydney Harbour, waving farewell to Circular Quay before passing by the Opera House, Botanic Gardens, Kirribilli House and majestic Eastern suburbs and eventually shooting through the heads into the wide blue yonder. Keep eyes peeled for marvellous displays of breaching, lunging and tail slapping as stately humpback, southern right and fin whales pass within 3km of the coastline during their annual winter migration. Watch out for playful show-offs leaping out of the water, mothers feeding their calves and curious individuals approaching the boat to do a spot of human-watching.
Sydney Adventure Cruises is a small family-run company based in Balmain. As well as whale watching, the experienced sea-certified team run specialised cruises that make the most of Sydney Harbour on Australia Day, New Year’s Eve and Boxing Day. Each 30-metre catamaran boasts multiple viewing positions spread across two decks, so passengers don’t miss a thing. Groupies get dropped back to Circular Quay in the heart of the city after the adventure and rest assured with the ‘Whale Guarantee’ which stipulates that if you don’t see a whale, your next trip is free.
