Location

Join one of Sydney's most popular whale watching companies for a combined tour and BBQ lunch package that will allow you to see the whales off Sydney Heads and enjoy a great meal all in one. Depart from the Eastern Pontoon Circular Quay, Sydney, head out for four hours total of whale watching cruising to see these gentle ocean giants up close; marvel as they breach and play just metres in front of the comfortable, purpose-built whale watching vessel.

Be sure to bring your camera as the whales can be quite a bunch of showoffs - you'll no doubt come away with some incredible pictures of the whales enjoying themselves. During the whale watching tour, you'll get to feast on a tasty buffet-style BBQ lunch to help fill your stomach and recharge your batteries for the rest of the cruise. Plus, there's even a whale-sighting guarantee - if you don't see whales on your cruise you're entitled to another cruise in the same whale watching season entirely free. If you want to see whales without having to travel far from Sydney, this tour is the option you're looking for.

An awesome and unforgettable day for all the family
Micheline Nguyen 3 months ago

An awesome and unforgettable day for all the family! Sunny day, whales, sea lions, dolphins, friendly crew, good food. Everything was perfect! Don’t forget your sickness tablets. I strongly recommend the Oz Whale Watching! Professional and safety first. Excellent!

We took the Sydney Cruise
Chunqing Zhang 5 months ago

We took the Sydney Cruise. The day was perfect, the staff on arrival were friendly and very helpful. The cruise was well worth the time seeing the beautiful Sydney Harbor on the way and an added BONUS of the BBQ lunch. The staff are very friendly and professional. I really enjoyed it. I am surprised by the spectacular whales' view.

It was really exciting to see the whales for all of us in the family
Riya Peynolds 1 year ago

It was really exciting to see the whales for all of us in the family. The crew was supportive and helped to look at which side while going to see the whales. Really experienced guys. A must go for everyone if you are not afraid of seasickness because it might get really shaking.

Amazing experience and filled with information
Vanezya Ravenzka 1 year ago

Amazing experience and filled with information. Skipper and crews were awesome in making sure you felt good. The BBQ lunch was delicious and generous. We got to see so many whales. The sea was so choppy so my mum and I felt very sick. Take a tablet before you join and don't underestimate the sea!

It was great fun and the Captain was excellent
Peta Grafton 1 year ago

It was great fun and the Captain was excellent. We got to see whales, dolphins and a brown seal. The person driving the boat was very good at his job because even though it was pretty choppy out there he gave us all a smooth dry return back to the pier.

Phoebe from customer service was exceptionally helpful
Idris Molsal 1 year ago

Phoebe from customer service was exceptionally helpful. Missed the boat by mere minutes and she offered to rebook with minimal cost for an otherwise forfeited pair of tickets. Looking forward to the upcoming trip and seeing the whales. Would definitely be the highlight of the trip.

It was my first time to see whales with my own eyes
Akiko Sone 1 year ago

It was my first time to see whales with my own eyes, and it was an unforgettable experience! We saw them performing for us and greeting to us (waving their hands) and I was so touched because I felt as if we were communicating with them. We put the video clip on Instagram and our friends loved it! (I recommended Experience Oz!) But the voyage was pretty rough and I’m glad I took the precaution for seasickness as you strongly advised. Thank you for sharing such a great experience with us!! We’d like to do it again!

My husband & I did the lunchtime cruise in winter
Amy Currey 1 year ago

My husband & I did the lunchtime cruise in winter. The weather was lovely & sunny, however, it was really choppy once you got through Sydney's heads. Even though I don't get motion sickness, I am so glad I took motion sickness tablets - many passengers were really suffering (especially the young children). The highlight for us was the last 30 minutes before heading back to circular quay, as we saw a mum & calf (less than a week old) - as the calf surfaces more frequently for air (instead of every 8-10 minutes for adults), you got to see the whales more often.

Food was pretty average but seeing the whales made up for it
Brooke Griffin 1 year ago

Food was pretty average but seeing the whales made up for it! Took us a while to find them but when we did we found 5 of them in a group! Recommend going whale watching that's for sure. The tour guide was very informative. An amazing experience which only could have been better with better food offered.
