Comfort Level & Weather

The 2017 Whale Watching season operates 20 May to approximately 01 November 2017.

A Guide to Whale Watching Cruise Comfort Levels

Passenger comfort is our priority. Our ocean going catamarans are ideally suited for whale watching with a choice of comfortable indoor and outdoor viewing. Waves, swell, winds and visibility can be very different outside the Harbour. To maximise your experience we only operate when we believe you will enjoy the cruise. Below is a guide to predicted sea and wind conditions. Please note conditions can change quickly and may deteriorate from predicted levels which is beyond our control.

Please note the final decision to operate cruises is made at 7.00am each morning.
Please ring the Whale Hotline +61-2-8062 3623 from 7.15am on the morning of your cruise for final confirmation of your cruise departure.
