Why go there

Enjoy a scenic trip as the vessel, True Blue, takes you across Sydney Harbour and out to the ocean in search of these magnificent creatures. You may be lucky to see them put on a show of fin and tail slapping or breeching. The annual migration season along the coast of New South Wales is from May to November - if you don't see any whales during the four hour journey, you'll receive a free trip.

Don't forget

  • Your camera.
  • A morning cruise when conditions are likely to be calmer.
