What could be better than the thought of setting off into the open ocean in search of whales. Actually, doing it!
We are very fortunate to be able to have the chance to see these magnificent animals, not too long ago they were on the endangered species list due to a host of different reasons including being hunted by poachers and an overall lack of understanding of just how important whales are to the ocean and ecosystem.
Whales play a huge part in the maintenance of our oceans and without them the world would be a very different place today.
Lucky for us thousands of whales make the journey every year from May to November, passing right through the city on their way to warmer waters off the coast of Queensland. If you’ve always wanted to see these majestic creatures up close and personal, one of the Sydney whale watching tours is a must-do whilst you’re in town…
When looking into Sydney whale watching, we were quite surprised at the number of choices available to you so do a little planning first and decide how you would like to spend your day and where you would like to end up.
Let’s explore the options.
- Where to skipper?
It’s crucial to learn which destinations the operator serves because you might want to board the vessel at a certain location or disembark at a different location depending on where you’re staying or where you want to go.
- Memorable times of the year.
Each company offers excursions and special event tours, so take a look. You may want to make it a special occasion and plan a trip for Boxing Day, the vibrant light tour, New Year’s Day, Australia Day, or even Sydney cruises Day. When you call be sure to ask. As usual, we discovered that some businesses are more comprehensive than others, so asking some questions and shopping around are important. To learn more, get in touch with one of the expert teams.
The Taronga Zoo was discovered to be the most popular attraction destination. When comparing the various operators, we discovered that some only provide a direct ride, while others offer 1 or even 2 day passes that include items like zoo admission, Sydney Harbour access, Manly fast ferries access, and Manly, Watsons Bay ferry access. When we looked at Sydney Harbour, we discovered a variety of packages, so be sure to ask for all of them when you call.
With the right advice and a company that cares your day will be one to remember, do a little thinking first in order to make the most of your time, there is so much to see and do. Enjoy your trip and be sure to take lots of action snaps!
