Date Details
28 May Another amazing day of whale watching. Our morning departure saw almost non stop breaching and theatrics from an energetic juvenile humpback. We also got an up-close look at a larger humpback and a pod of dolphins on our afternoon cruise, with a rainbow to top it all off! A perfect ending to a perfect day on the harbour. 
25 May Our passengers were joined by a friendly juvenile humpback whale who approached the boat a number of times to say hi, even diving directly underneath the boat!
24 May Two adult Humpbacks near North Head, entertaining our guests with several blows and a big breach.
23 May An amazing cruise spotting 10-15 common dolphins off South Head, and the highlight for our passengers - a Humpback off Botany Bay surface swimming alongside the vessel for approx 30min with 6-8 close-ups!
22 May One solo Humpback sighted today. Although fairly quiet, we were treated to a a couple of typical whale behaviours - blows and an arched back. Visit our About Whales pages for more info on these gentle giants.
21 May Day 2 of this season didn't disappoint! A pod of 2 adults Humpbacks off La Perouse early in the day, and the same pod again in the afternoon near Manly. Exciting passengers with pectoral slaps and blows, the highlight was a double breach.
20 May A wonderful start to season 2017 with a pod of 3 Humpbacks sighted off Botany Bay this afternoon. These gentle giants impressed all onboard with lots of blows, 4x peduncle throws, and a chin slap with average downtimes of approx. 10min.
