It is the annual migration of humpback whales from Antarctica to Queensland that makes Sydney such a great spot from which to take a whale watching tour.
Each year, from May to November, thousands of whales make the trip, a journey that brings them right past the city as they head to warmer waters off the coast of Queensland. If you have always wanted the opportunity to see these magnificent creatures in the wild, joining one of our Sydney whale watching tours is a must when you are in the area…

Whale Watching Tour in Sydney
Our most popular tours are from 2 to 3 hours in duration, enough time to get out into the waters that are frequented by the whales and to show you not just many examples of the fantastic humpback whale but dolphins, Orcas and other marine life that can be found in this part of the world. One of the reasons that many people prefer whale watching in Sydney to any of the alternatives is the sheer variety of marine species they have the chance to spot when out on a boat in local waters. Whilst we cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular species, we always do our best to ensure that our guests enjoy studying the natural behaviours of a wide selection of marine life during their time with us. It is our expertise with humpback whales that has helped to make us so popular over the years but it is our genuine passion for all marine life that helps to make our tours unique.
