Join one of Sydney's most popular whale watching companies for a combined tour and BBQ lunch package that will allow you to see the whales off Sydney Heads and enjoy a great meal all in one. Depart from the Eastern Pontoon Circular Quay, Sydney, head out for four hours total of whale watching cruising to see these gentle ocean giants up close; marvel as they breach and play just metres in front of the comfortable, purpose-built whale watching vessel.

Be sure to bring your camera as the whales can be quite a bunch of showoffs - you'll no doubt come away with some incredible pictures of the whales enjoying themselves. During the whale watching tour, you'll get to feast on a tasty buffet-style BBQ lunch to help fill your stomach and recharge your batteries for the rest of the cruise. Plus, there's even a whale-sighting guarantee - if you don't see whales on your cruise you're entitled to another cruise in the same whale watching season entirely free. If you want to see whales without having to travel far from Sydney, this tour is the option you're looking for.

Julia Neuberger 7 months ago It was my first time I went on a whale watching tour. At first, I was sceptical because I thought I wouldn’t see any whales or if we would not that good. But now I’m so happy I booked this tour because we saw whales so close! They jumped out of the water so often and we even saw a mother with her baby! It was amazing!
The lunch was good and a lot of choices from salad to beef
Chong Chee Kong 3 weeks ago

The lunch was good and a lot of choices from salad to beef, plain water to coffee and refillable. We manage to see whale just next to our cruise, fantastic experience. The captain is very experienced and was able to predict the direction where the whale will go. A lot of jokes and informative learning about whales when you are on board with them. Well done.

Despite having a slow day with the whales
Zachary Russell 7 months ago

Despite having a slow day with the whales, we still enjoyed ourselves. The staff was very friendly, and our guide was incredibly informative. We didn’t see many whales, which happens sometimes with wild animals, but were able to see previous trips’ encounters on the Cruise’s Facebook page, which can help you decide if you want to gamble on the previous cruise’s experience when booking your tour last-minute. The tour of the Sydney Harbor to and from the whale-watching area’s is almost worth the tour itself if you haven’t done one. So, I would say book the tour, enjoy the Harbour, and expect more than a few dolphins and a whale or two as an exceptional day and consider yourself lucky.

A very knowledgeable crew and cruise kept a respectable distance from the whales
Diana Truong 7 months ago

A very knowledgeable crew and cruise kept a respectable distance from the whales. Professional and was able to get some great shots of humpbacks. Really glad that they weren't aggressive in pursuing the whales, there were other boats which ventured too close to their territory and disrupted the whales' migration route. Highly recommended!

Spent a fantastic day out watching whales
Maria Juchkov 7 months ago

Spent a fantastic day out watching whales! Spotted 4 in total, and saw some amazing breaches! This team really care about whales and have lots of great info! 4 hours flew past so fast! Highly recommend! Would’ve been great if more educational info was provided, for example, the impacts of humans on these amazing creatures!

It was good they had a look for whales
Kathleen Purnell 8 months ago

It was good they had a look for whales, but the weather was not good, so sightings not that good. The food was tasteless rocket lettuce with thin slices of pear and some Parmesan cheese on top. Noodles salad that we had was bland and tasteless. Coleslaw was the only thing that was nice. The chicken was slightly overcooked and dry (had to drink water with it). Sausages and no sauce to add to them and a bread roll. Staff were friendly.

A very professional experience
Steve Foster 8 months ago

A very professional experience. The whale expert gave a very detailed presentation and provided excellent insight with understanding how whales behave. The BBQ was excellent and I recommend this tour with high praise. The company provided an extended visit out at sea so that we would come back with plenty of satisfaction. A case where the customer is the highest priority.

We had the best whale watching experience on Tuesday with Experience Oz
Daniela Moravcova 1 year ago

We had the best whale watching experience on Tuesday with Experience Oz. The staff are champs, the boat was comfy, the food was plentiful and yummy and we had the best bunch of whales breaching and waving to us with their fins. I will never forget that day!

The Whale Watching Cruise was very good
Burjor Dustoor 2 years ago

The Whale Watching Cruise was very good. We saw a pair of beautiful Whales surfacing and diving back I, several times. They looked beautiful and majestic. The Crew were excellent and extremely helpful in all ways. Three Cheers to the Crew. However, the Food or rather their Barbecue Lunch could be improved. It just has small pieces of a lightly roasted kind of Chicken and some Grilled Sausages, with three pretty Bland Salads. All-in-all, a nice experience, especially the Whale Sightings.

It was a once in a lifetime experience having to witness the whales
Pammie 3 years ago

It was a once in a lifetime experience having to witness the whales. The guide was professional and share interesting tips to lure the attention of the whales! The BBQ lunch was also satisfying!

As you head out into the open ocean and if you suffer from seasickness, head to the pharmacy prior to your whale watch cruise and grab some seasickness remedy.
