Private Luxury Whale Watching off the Sydney Heads

Sydney Princess Cruises, a premier private charter boat operator, organises a 4-hour luxury whale watching tour for tourists and locals who can never grow tired of cruising next to these magnificent creatures. To ensure it is an unforgettable experience, we pay special attention to every single detail on that day.

BBQ buffet lunch and beverages are included. Our experienced staff will remain at your disposal throughout the day to indulge your needs and ensure that the entire event goes smoothly.

Luxury cruising whale watching is an exhilarating adventure, seeing these incredible creatures frolicking in the ocean is an awe-inspiring treat that you will remember forever! Such special occasions are fun for the whole family – kids and adults.

This cruise is a must if you want that more personal experience for a small group, family or couples. Join us during whale watching season as we marvel at these incredible creatures frolicking and swimming in the tranquil waters of the Pacific Ocean.

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.
