Welcome to Sydney’s Best Harbour Cruises
If you’ve ever dreamed of getting up close and personal with whales, now is your chance! Here in Sydney we observe the annual migration of humpback whales from May through until November. Humpback whales are considered to be the best species for whale watching. Compared to other whales, they are very playful and are often seen tail or fin slapping. You might even be lucky enough to observe 45 tonnes of whale leaping right out of the water!

Memorable whale watching experience
It was an absolutely great whale watching experience. We saw a lot of humpback whales and dolphins. Beautiful day. Staffs were very friendly. The boat was large, comfy and clean. It was really enjoyable and I’ll definitely come back. 🙂
Whale of a time
Have been on a few whale watching excursions and this was by far the best plus the added bonus of actually seeing whales! Booked online and boarded at Circular Quay, being a Monday afternoon it wasn’t busy at all maybe about 30 people the Vessel was modern and 1st class plenty of viewing areas. The crew were friendly and explained the protocols and rules of whale watching and were very respectful to graceful mammals, we were lucky enough to hang around with a couple of Humpbacks for about an hour and were given informative commentary along the way. The time went so quick will be keen to go again next season.
Whale Interaction at its Finest
Fantastic crew especially Lisa-she really knew her stuff and made the cruise. Humpback Highway is a thing and is definitely worthy of being on everyone’s bucket list.No better time than to see them in Sydney. I also could not believe how close they came to shore.
“Excellent New Years cruise”
We took the 90-minute cruise for New Years and we’re not disappointed – fab views of the new year fireworks. Not cheap but worth every penny.
A great way to see the harbour and have a thrill. We thought this trip was great for teenagers and their aging parents to do together. Thoroughly recommended.
A great experience, would recommend it to anyone.
It was a comfortable day to be on the water with little glare and enough wind to ensure an interesting start. The captain did a great job in positioning us for the start and made sure that we got a good look at the leaders as he let them power past. We were looked after by an experienced crew who made sure that we enjoyed hot food and the cold drink.
Fantastic value compared to others we looked at.
A whole new way of seeing the start of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race. Right in the action from the start then offshore from Bondi Beach. Really great up close boating. Well done to all, great burgers+ cold drinks+ the best boat driving= fantastic value compared to others we looked at.
Migaloo as the star!
Thanks again for the terrific whale cruise yesterday, with Migaloo as the star. It was unforgettable! I mentioned the work being done with dogs to locate whale droppings. This could be fun for your customers to hear about along with the breath sampling by drones.
An evening on Joy Bar!
My friends and I went on Joybar for an evening of wine and chocolate tasting. It was wonderful! The staff were attentive, approachable and were constantly making sure you were having a great time! We tried 3 different wines and chocolates to match each one. It was really well done. As if wine tasting wasn’t enough you are also cruising around the famous Sydney Harbour at dusk seeing all the famous sights up close and personal! It was a great evening and perfect for group friends!
Best Harbour Trip with Your Fabulous Staff
Just went on the best harbour trip with your fabulous staff, Adam and Holly on the Shopper Hopper, they were so friendly and personable. Would definitely go again but only if these two are on duty
Fantastic Vivid Cruise.
This cruise exceeded my expectations. I have to use a forearm crutch to walk and balance and The crew were fantastic in assisting me with boarding and moving around the boat to be able to see the best of the “Vivid” light show. Not only did they help, but they did so in a friendly manner. Top marks to all, you made my Sydney Harbour cruise the highlight of my stay.
Great Harbour Tour!
We got the last water taxi tour on the new years day bank holiday which was 45 minutes long and had a great time despite the weather. The guide was very knowledgeable of the area and the sites we saw.
Great Cruise into Sydney!!!
This was the final leg of the Blue Mountains tour by Grey lines. The cruise was nice and so relaxing after a day of sight seeing west of Sydney. The drinks were great and I got some great pictures along the way. It ended at night and afforded a great view of the Harbor area upon arrival
Whale Watching- Most Fabulous Experience.
Most fabulous experience. Saw humpback whales doing the back flip. Amazing peaceful animals. Excellent facilities and manned by very good personnel. Would recommend only Fantasea if you want to guarantee whale watching. We have used other cruises before but only got to see whales with Fantasea.
