Sydney Whale watching. Sydney's best value whale watching Sydney cruise. We are the only Sydney whale watching company that offers live commentary, whale watching experience, a Sydney Harbour cruise and a BBQ buffet lunch all included in the one great package. Prices range from $50 - $94. The cruise runs for 4 hours and is a family owned and operated business that has been running for 15 years. Whale watching can be an exciting experience and we believe everyone should try it at least once in their life.

Friendly crew members. Food was ok. I was sitting outside to have a good look, but unfortunately in that case you couldn't understand what they were saying. And the whales were impressive.

Fantastic day with such a great and caring crew. Terrific meal as well and Dave, Aaron and Tassie knew exactly where to find the whales. You won't be disappointed if you cruise with Oz Whale Watching.

We are planning to book the trip with our 2 years old boy, wondering if we have to buy the ticket for him?

Children 4 years and under are cheaper but still require the purchase of a ticket.

I know there's a BBQ buffet for the afternoon cruise, was there a variety of foods and are there beverages available through out the cruise? I had an unfortunate incident on a different cruise where there was no water or any beverages available even for purchase and my companion was ill. Thank you
