Location

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.

It was great fun and the Captain was excellent. We got to see whales, dolphins and a brown seal. The person driving the boat was very good at his job because even though it was pretty choppy out there he gave us all a smooth dry return back to the pier.
Amazing experience and filled with information
Vanezya Ravenzka 7 days ago

Amazing experience and filled with information. Skipper and crews were awesome in making sure you felt good. The BBQ lunch was delicious and generous. We got to see so many whales. The sea was so choppy so my mum and I felt very sick. Take a tablet before you join and don't underestimate the sea!

Phoebe from customer service was exceptionally helpful
Idris Molsal 2 months ago

Phoebe from customer service was exceptionally helpful. Missed the boat by mere minutes and she offered to rebook with minimal cost for an otherwise forfeited pair of tickets. Looking forward to the upcoming trip and seeing the whales. Would definitely be the highlight of the trip.

It was my first time to see whales with my own eyes
Akiko Sone 3 months ago

It was my first time to see whales with my own eyes, and it was an unforgettable experience! We saw them performing for us and greeting to us (waving their hands) and I was so touched because I felt as if we were communicating with them. We put the video clip on Instagram and our friends loved it! (I recommended Experience Oz!) But the voyage was pretty rough and I’m glad I took the precaution for seasickness as you strongly advised. Thank you for sharing such a great experience with us!! We’d like to do it again!

My husband & I did the lunchtime cruise in winter
Amy Currey 3 months ago

My husband & I did the lunchtime cruise in winter. The weather was lovely & sunny, however, it was really choppy once you got through Sydney's heads. Even though I don't get motion sickness, I am so glad I took motion sickness tablets - many passengers were really suffering (especially the young children). The highlight for us was the last 30 minutes before heading back to circular quay, as we saw a mum & calf (less than a week old) - as the calf surfaces more frequently for air (instead of every 8-10 minutes for adults), you got to see the whales more often.

Food was pretty average but seeing the whales made up for it
Brooke Griffin 3 months ago

Food was pretty average but seeing the whales made up for it! Took us a while to find them but when we did we found 5 of them in a group! Recommend going whale watching that's for sure. The tour guide was very informative. An amazing experience which only could have been better with better food offered.

Absolutely fantastic the staff were so friendly and efficient
Jenny Turnham 4 months ago

Absolutely fantastic the staff were so friendly and efficient. You are going out to sea so take travel calmly. The whales should get an Oscar. What an amazing experience. The food was lovely and the marine specialist had so much knowledge and was so very funny. Go it’s worth it!

Excellent day out
Eilleen Munro 4 months ago

Excellent day out. Biggles, our host, was full of enthusiasm and knowledge. Was explained when boarding the boat that the sea was quite rough that day, and gave everybody ample opportunity to rebook for another day. Remember to take a seasickness pill – it will make the cruise much more pleasant. Unfortunately, half the tourists did not, or could not handle the rough sea. Was a very pleasant cruise, and Biggles shared his knowledge of the area and about whales in general. Was great to see a couple of whales, and got a few snapshots, albeit they were a distance away. Met a couple of very nice people while waiting to spot the whales. Very enjoyable and will do it again next time.

We got the buy one get one free offer on Friday
Xiangsheng Wang 4 months ago

We got the buy one get one free offer on Friday. It's nice to see. This is the first time we use Experience Oz. The purchase experience was good. I will recommend it to others. It also provides you with a free return trip if you don't see the whales. The kids love it.

An excellent afternoon cruising outside Sydney Harbour following the majestic mammals of the sea
Bryan Wild 4 months ago

An excellent afternoon cruising outside Sydney Harbour following the majestic mammals of the sea. The boat crew were extremely friendly and professional. Biggles the knowledgeable and entertaining whale expert kept us fully informed on the playful antics of the migrating whales. He also provided some excellent photos of the breaching whales later that night on his social media page. The cruise also provided a bbq lunch. Would highly recommend.

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.
