Forget traditional 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 boat.
Your extreme whale watching experience begins with a transfer to pick up extra passengers at Manly Wharf and then it's 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. Once your skipper brings the boat up to one such pod, you'll be able to get up close to these majestic creatures. You'll be able to observe these adorable whales while the play in the water.
The purpose built boat is powered by triple 300hp outboard engines, which can propel this vessel to speeds of up to 50 knots (100km/h) – far greater than those of a jet boat.
*If whales are not sighted on your tour you are able to ride again on the same vessel in the same whale watching season.
