Dolphin and Whale Watching on a Catamaran

Dolphin and Whale Watching
Looking for an amazing way to spend a day in Sydney? How about Dolphin and Whale watching on a luxury catamaran! During whale season, around 30,000 Humpback whales migrate along the coast of Australia coming close by to Sydney’s shoreline following northern currents used to navigate up to coast. And where there are nursing whales, you’re sure to find dolphins close by, and Fairy penguins are also a common sight in this area too! On board a 38 foot catamaran with only 12 other passengers, you’ll have plenty of space to move around and enjoy this intimate experience. So don’t miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity and book your Dolphin and Whale Watching experience today!
