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.
Your two 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 on the giant purpose-built fast boat that can reach speeds greater than a jet boat. 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 during the same season. It is non-transferable and must be used by the original participant.
Maximum 21 passengers on each trip
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.
*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)
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.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
