Whale watching with Captain Cook Cruises



Have a Whale of a Time with Captain Cook Cruises

Join Captain Cook Cruises this whale watching season from 21st May to 1st November, 2016 for an unforgettable whale and cruise experience off the heads of Sydney Harbour.

With a 99% success rate, Captain Cook Cruises are offering a whale guarantee; if a whale is not spotted, passengers are offered the opportunity to cruise again for free.

According to Richard Doyle, Head of Sales and Marketing at Captain Cook Cruises “this exciting open-water cruise takes passengers past the Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison and the bays of Sydney Harbour and out through the heads to the open waters where passengers can watch the whales in their natural environment and view their annual migration”.

“The majority of whales' species seen along the New South Wales coastline are Humpback and Southern Right Whales, with the occasional sighting of Killer and Minke whales.” Mr Doyle continues.
