A beautiful day curtesy by mother nature absolutely loved the cruise Whales are so unpredictable and when they rose up from the ocean nothing but spectacular sights, would highly recommend captain cook whale watching cruises
The Sydney whale watching cruise was certainly an eye-opening experience for me. The afternoon cruise that I went on was the perfect ending for my day's visit to Sydney, Australia. The pilot of the Captain Cook's cruise boat provided an informative commentary throughout the cruise: as we headed out of the Sydney harbour area telling us what to look out for while we were amongst the whales informing us of each sighting of whale fin and whale breaking surface to blow and as we headed back to the Circular quay in Sydney. Although the motion of the boat did make me feel a bit sleepy for the first half, I was thrilled to glance towards the opposite side of the boat and clearly see close-up a whale break the surface of the water and dive down again. Others on the cruise viewed a mother whale and her young one many times during the cruise. It was a great whale spotting time: there seemed to be quite a number of whales in the area. I would really recommend visitors taking a whale watching cruise while they are in Sydney.
Cruise operation worked hard to make sure we saw whales and extended our time. I have never seen humpbacks so close up. Great experience.
Had the best whale watching trip! We had four whales that were putting on a show around us the whole time. Dolphins showed up as well and we saw seals on the way back in. Was way above my expectations. I would definitely recommend this.
Outstanding! Paul was an outstanding tour guide. He kept us informed all through the trip with excellent knowledge of the whales and Sydney's coastline.
My mom and I loved going on this short little cruise. Whale sightings are guaranteed. Apparently we got a heckuva tour though as we had whales the WHOLE TIME we were out. They had one jump out of the water once and slap their tails another time. Most of the time it was just going out and in rolling it's back across the surface of the water. The guide we had was fantastic and really let us in on a lot of whale facts which I didn't know before. Super educational but fun too.
Great weather and great crew! They found whales within 30 minutes of our departure and stayed with them throughout the cruise until it was time to return to port. They were approachable with questions and knowledgable in their answers. A terrific day!
A fun tour. We saw a group of 3 whales much of the time we were out. I would do it again if I were back in Sydney in June.
Excellent nice guys good boat at least 5 different whales including mother and calf
The cruise was filled with first-rate information. And the guides were attentive to finding whales to watch but stayed with them for a considerable time so that we could really experience seeing them.
Great whale watching, the boat very near and manage to capture the biggest creature in the sea
Awesome! The ride out was a little rough but we saw whales the whole time once we left the harbor!
We had a great time,the crew were very good and very informative,the information they gave us in relation to the migration of the whales made the journey very exciting and interesting.We saw a lot of whales,large and small and one of them put on a great show for us.I highly recommend this tour to everyone who is interested in seeing the whales.Thank you Captain Cook Tours and Viator.
Excellent trip. Definitely recommend it. Knowledgeable staff and whale sightings made this trip great.
The guide was very friendly and informative.
it's a pitty that weather was not very good but just ok, but anyway vary food trip.
Awesome experience! Captain and crews were really friendly and as enthusiastic about the whale watching. We were really lucky and caught sight of many whales. Even chin slapping! Great job to the Captain and crews. Truly one of a kind experience for us. Thank you!
