Popular Whale Watching Cruise Back in 2009
The Whale Watching cruise takes passengers past the Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison and all the beautiful homes located in the bays of Sydney Harbour and then out through the heads and onto the open waters. Here the direction of the vessel is totally dependent on where the whales have been sighted – north towards Manly or south towards Coogee. Most whales are found within 2kms of shore.
The number of Humpback and Southern Wright whales passing through Sydney on their annual northern migration between Antarctica and the Great Barrier Reef, is expected to reach its traditional peak around the Winter Solstice on June 22nd.
After calving in the northern waters between August and September, the whales will then again head south through Sydney, making their long journey back to Antarctica.
Whale Watching vessels are purpose built for Whale Watching and feature two decks both offering spectacular open air viewing and a comfortable inside all-weather lounge for the entire family.
Captain Cook Cruises offers a whale guarantee - if a whale is not sighted in the months of May to November 2009 passengers can rebook another cruise free of charge or for those cruising in June and July they have the choice to receive 50% of their money back.
Whale Watching cruises depart daily from Jetty 6 Circular Quay at 9.10am and 1.30pm and from Darling Harbour at 9.00am and 1.15pm. Morning departures only operate from May 30 to July 31, 2009.
Whale Watching Cruises are priced at: adults $75, concession $65, child (0-14) $39, family (2ad+2ch) $189.
