Arrive at Campbell’s Cove Pontoon, Circular Quay 15 minutes prior to your scheduled departure to meet your driver and complete the brief sign in process. Board the vessel and be taken briskly across the harbour to Manly Wharf to pick up more passengers. Once everyone is on board, you’ll receive a safety briefing, a requirement for all offshore adventures. Your driver will also outline the key things to look for when trying to spot the whales.

Hold on tight as the vessel picks up speed and leaves Sydney Harbour to head offshore to migration routes of the humpback whales. Your driver will be in contact with the other vessels to find the livliest and most approachable whale pods. Once the whales are located you will cruise alongside the migrating pod while your driver outlines plenty of whale facts.

How far away offshore you are now will determine how long you can spend with the whale pod.

When it is time to head home you will be asked to take your seat again and hang on as you speed back to Sydney Harbour.

The passengers from Manly will be dropped back first. Then you will cruise back through the harbor to Circular Quay, hopefully with a memory stick full of photos of breaching whales.
