Highlights

  • See whales in their natural habitat
  • Thrill ride, reaching speeds of 100km/h
  • Unique Sydney experience

Forget boring old whale watching cruises! The Ocean Extreme fast boat ride brings an extreme element to Whale Watching, there's just nothing else like it in Sydney. You'll be taken on an exciting and unforgettable journey to see the whales in their natural habitat on a giant purpose-built fast boat.

What's Included?

  • 2 hour fast boat ride
  • Whale viewing, in their natural habitat
  • Whale sighting guarantee*

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 its 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 sighted on your tour you are able to ride again on the same vessel in the same whale watching season.
