Great whale watching tour from Sydney (10.09.2023)

We booked a 3-hour whale watching tour from Sydney for 2 adults and 2 children (2 + 4 years old) via Experience Oz with FantaSea Adventures. We had nice weather with a relatively calm ocean, just some rouge waves. On our tour, we have seen several humpback whales and even 2 or 3 dolphins. It was fantastic!

It was a very amazing experience we got to see two whales, one male and female. Unfortunately we spotted just the tail and back but not the face hopefully next time we get a sight of face.

It was a very amazing experience we got to see 2 whales one male and female unfortunately we spotted just the tail and back but not the face hopefully next time we get a sight of face. The cruise was amazing so clean inside out and one suggestion to everyone if you want to see the exact spot where whales arrive then follow the photographer.

Another great experience; in terms of value

Another great experience; in terms of value, timing, professionalism and meeting expectation. Maybe it was our lucky day, that managed to see few groups of whales wandering along, some even following us on way in-shore back to Sydney; some waving their wing to us; the only thing we did not see was jumping out of water.
