Why You'll Love This

What's Included?

  • 2 hour fast boat ride for two people
  • Whale sighting guarantee*
  • Safety briefing

The boat is powered by triple 300hp outboard engines, which can propel this vessel to speeds up to 50 knots (100km/h) – speeds far greater than a jet boat.

Your 2 hour Extreme Whale Watching experience begins with a transfer to pick up extra passengers at Manly Wharf and then it's full speed out of the harbour. After punching through the heads and into the South Pacific, you're taken on a high-speed cruise out to see the whales - your skipper is in constant contact with other boat drivers to find the most friendly and approachable whale pods.

* If whales are not spotted on a whale watching tour, each passenger will be issued with a 'Standby Ticket' for another Whale Watching tour during the same whale watching season.

Please note, this experience will be unavailable from mid January 2018 - mid March 2018.
