Highlights

  • See whales in their natural habitat
  • High Speed Vessel, reaching speeds of 80km/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 two 425 horsepower outboard engines, which can propel this vessel to speeds up to 45 knots (85km/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 Tasman Sea, 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 ticket to come on another whale watching tour for free. The new ticket will be valid for 12 months from the date that we are permitted to operate at full capacity again (21 passengers).
