Captain Cook whale watching tours


It may surprise you to learn that close to Australia's largest city is some of the best whale-watching opportunities. The 2014 Whale Watching season commenced this year on May 17th and continues until November 16 - because of course, all the whales that go north for their breeding time in warmer waters, will return again later in the year, heading south.

The majority of whale species seen along the New South Wales coastline are Humpback and Southern Right Whales, with the occasional sighting of Killer and Minke whales, we were told. Some may be youngsters on their first big getaway; other might have done this journey dozens of times. Most whales are found within two kilometres of the shore, so you can feel fairly confident of sightings. 


Captain Cook's Cruises' fleet of comfortable fully equipped ocean-catamarans feature two passenger decks, with spectacular open-air viewing and an all-weather lounge for the entire family. What's more with a 99 percent success record for locating whales and a highly skilled and knowledgeable team, passengers are assured of an unforgettable experience.
