Take pleasure in seeing the sights in Sydney, enjoy a sumptuous lunch of barbecue and watch whales in their natural surroundings while taking the best cruise along the Sydney Harbour. Let the ocean and the breeze relieve your stress, as you look around at all the sights along Sydney’s shoreline. When you feel the grumbling in your tummy, savor the buffet that is available on board. After feasting on the delicious lunch, it is time to head far out to the sea and find what you really hopped in for – whale watching. Your boat will head for the Pacific Ocean by passing the Sydney Heads. It is interesting to note that the number of passengers in the vessel is limited to ensure that everyone is comfortable while watching the whales.
The high points of this cruise package includes whale watching in the Pacific Ocean, sightseeing of the Sydney Harbour such as getting a spectacular view of the Sydney Opera House from the water, a tour guide to give live commentaries as you go around, and a scrumptious barbecue lunch. Whale sightings are guaranteed; in case you did not see any whale, your return cruise will be free of charge. The whale watching experience is made even better and more comfortable by the reduced number of participants.
It starts from the King Street Wharf, where you are made to feel like you are leaving all the stresses of the city behind, literally and figuratively. Just sit back and take in the majestic views of Sydney’s world famous landmarks. The Kirribilli House, Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Sydney Opera House all become smaller and smaller as you get closer to the whales in the Pacific Ocean.
Along the way, you will be enjoying the views of Double Bay and Elizabeth Bay followed by other fabulous beaches while munching on the onboard BBQ lunch. You will have plenty of choices in the buffet. Alcoholic beverages can also be enjoyed but at your own cost.
When you are done with the hearty lunch, the cruise continues as you pass by the Harbour Heads, Manly Beach, The Gap and the Watsons Bay cliffs. If you haven’t brought out your camera, now is the time because this is the part where whale watching starts. Before you know it, you’ll be looking at the acrobatics of humpback whales or even southern right whales. There may also be orcas or even blue whales, which are known as the world’s largest animals. You will be hearing the tour guide telling you more about the whales you are watching. Be reminded that the cruise is mainly about getting to watch whales. If you did not see any whale on the cruise, your return will be absolutely free.
For scheduling of your whale-watching cruise, you will have choices from the months of June, July, August, September, October and November. Ideally, the whale-watching season runs from May to November. Your ship will depart from King Street Wharf 8 and 12:15 in the afternoon. The cruise will take a total of 4 hours and you will go back to where you departed from, King Street Wharf 8. Please book as early as you can so that you will have more options. Early booking also increases your chances of getting discounts that are offered in random.
Bear in mind that the cruise package covers barbecue buffet lunch, onboard live commentary, tea and coffee. The cruise does not include picking you up from your hotel or bringing you back there. The same is true for alcoholic beverages and tips, all of which are to be paid by you.
Your schedule will be confirmed when you have booked the cruise. It is also a good time to tell the operators about what you can or cannot eat. Be reminded that the cruise may be cancelled in the event of bad weather. In case the weather is poor, you can choose to reschedule or get your money back. It is advisable to bring a camera, sun protection, and wear warm clothing and comfortable shoes during a summer cruise.
It is also recommended that people with motion sickness inform the operators in advance, or make sure that they take the pills before heading out.
