Climb aboard for an enjoyable breakfast or lunchtime cruise with Oz Whale Watching. Your trusty vessel is the MV Jerry Bailey, a comfortable boat with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating.

Make sure your camera is ready to capture action from the many viewing areas on board. As you motor through Sydney Harbour, the harbour heads and out onto the ocean beyond, your hosts will share fascinating facts about whales, their behaviour and their migration patterns.

When can tear yourself away from the beautiful scenery, head over to the buffet for a delicious breakfast or, if you opt for the later cruise time, enjoy an Aussie-style barbecue lunch. Once you're refreshed and refuelled, enjoy stretching your legs on the spacious upper deck, where you can also purchase beverages from a fully-stocked bar.

Oz Whale Watching is a licensed commercial tour operator with a Parks Eco Pass.
