Whale Watching Sydney

per person

Sydney whale sightings have grown every year and 2017 is going to be the best year yet and you can save up to 10% if you book with YHA!

Southern Right, Orca and Minke Whales all visit Sydney's coastline, but it's the Humpbacks that come in great numbers and love to show off with breaches, tail slaps and even a sneaky wink when they are feeling extra curious.

This is the only Whale Watching vessel on Sydney Harbour that provides 360 degree viewing on 3 outside decks. Take advantage of the top deck open air platform which provides unobstructed panoramic views. Professional commentary and whale presentations. Free coffee, tea, water and biscuits. Licensed bar and bathroom facilities available.
