The 2014 Whale Watching season commences 17 May, and Captain Cook Cruises are offering passengers a unique experience to view the annual migration with cruises from Sydney.
All Whale Watching Cruises come with a whale guarantee; if a whale is not spotted, passengers are offered the opportunity to cruise again for free.
“This great open-water cruise takes passengers past the Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison, the bays of Sydney Harbour and out through the heads to the open waters where passengers can watch the whales in their natural environment.” Says Richard Doyle, Head of Sales and Marketing, Captain Cook Cruises.
“The majority of whale species seen along the New South Wales coastline are Humpback and Southern Right Whales, with the occasional sighting of Killer and Minke whales.”Continues Mr Doyle.
Most whales are found within 2kms of the shore. With a 99% success record, a fully equipped fleet and a highly skilled and knowledgeable team, passengers will have an unforgettable experience.
