Whale Watching Cruise in Sydney

A new and exciting whale watching season is ahead of us! Book a whale watching cruise in Sydney with us to enjoy breathtaking views of the harbour as you cruise alongside the most magnificent sea creatures on Earth.

Sydney Princess Cruises is one of the most popular private charter agencies that organise group and individual cruises in the Sydney Harbour. We have been sailing the local waters for two decades now, offering several types of whale watching tours in Sydney, each accompanied by experienced members of our staff. They ensure each person who boards our vessel has the time of their lives. Whether you book the Oz whale watching breakfast or lunch cruise with your better half, family, friends, or on your own, you are guaranteed to have a memorable experience. We customise our service to meet all your demands in terms of food, activities or any other requests.

Whale watching off Sydney Heads is an exhilarating adventure, an awe-inspiring treat that you will remember forever! The southern hemisphere humpback migration is estimated to be approx. 36,000 whales this year, with an average increase of 11% per year, quite amazing considering these magnificent creatures were nearly hunted to the point of extinction 45 years ago. You can learn this and more interesting facts about the whales known to swim the Sydney waters thanks to our knowledgeable tour guides. They will introduce you to the thrilling sea life and answer any questions you may have.
