  • Witness the annual whale migration along the Sydney coastline
  • Cruise aboard a historic tall ship
  • Opportunity to climb the mast and help sail the ship

Step aboard a classic tall ship vessel for an unforgettable whale watching cruise on Sydney Harbour. Enjoy the chance to witness the annual whale migration along the Sydney coastline and get up close to these magnificent creatures. A warm and hearty lunch will be served onboard.

What's Included?

  • Five hour tall ship cruise with whale watching
  • Warm and hearty lunch onboard
  • Opportunity to get involved in sailing the ship
  • Opportunity to climb the mast

The annual whale migration sees thousands of Humpback and Southern Right Whales swim close to the Sydney coastline. On this five hour cruise aboard a historic tall ship you will head outside the Sydney heads and enjoy the chance to see these majestic creatures with your own eyes. The quiet nature of the ship ensures a low impact on the whales’ environment and the open deck allows great unrestricted viewing for all. A warm and hearty lunch will also be served aboard.

For those game enough, you'll be able to climb the mast and you can even help out with the sailing of the ship to truly experience the open sea!
