Like many humans, whales prefer to spend their winters in Australia. From the end of May until as late as December, pods of humpback whales fill Australia’s oceans as they migrate to mate and eventually give birth to calves. Fantasea is dedicated not only to making sure you reach the Pacific’s “Whale Highway” in record time, but to providing you with a comfortable and memorable boating experience as well. Vivid Sydney night cruises include a complimentary welcome drink and a stunning evening view of Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, Harbour Lights, Taronga Zoo, the Botanical Gardens, and Walsh Bay. The Vivid and Whale Watching Package allows you to take in both these giants as well as the largest outdoor light show in the world for only $99.

Cruise 1: Hop aboard the large catamaran and enjoy complimentary refreshments while you cruise around Vivid Sydney for a 60- minute cruise from Darling Harbour to Fort Denison past the Botanical Gardens and a slow cruise around the Opera House taking in the light show from every angle, a view only possible from the water.

Cruise 2: Fantasea’s Whale Watching Cruise is one of the most popular Sydney Harbour cruise deals, nature lovers from every corner of the globe flock here just like the whales each winter to make the most of the experience, often glimpsing other wildlife such as dolphins and fairy penguins. The international community has done such a great job with whale conservation that 2018 is set to top 20,000 leviathan visitors, making it the busiest year to date. On our boats, you’ll find two spacious viewing decks that offer the ideal vantage point from which to spy on your giant photogenic prey.

Fantasea-Favicon A Lovely Evening Cruise

"Great deal booked online and a really lovely 1 1/2 hrs cruising the harbour. We enjoyed the outdoor deck upstairs, but the inside area was just beautiful for those who preferred to be inside. Staff were lovely and overall experience was terrific. We were blessed with the weather... would highly recommend!"
