That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.

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.
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).
Due to social distancing measures this experience runs with a maximum of 9 participants instead of the regular 21 passengers that usually travel.
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider
Sunglasses and warm clothing are essential. Due to Covid19 it is recommended you bring your own wind/spray jacket to avoid using the shared jackets provided.

This experience departs from Campbell's Cove Pontoon at Circular Quay (The Rocks). It is located at the end of the Overseas Passenger Terminal Building in front of Squire Landing Pub. Pick up from Manly Wharf available on request.
