Great experience. The high speed boat- awesome thrill ride. Then you get to see the whales- complete different experience ; Blake's knowledge on them is vast. Overall a well packaged deal. Highly recommended to go through Ocean Extreme.

We first went to try to see the whales on Thursday (6/9/18) but unfortunately there were none in the area, and we had to head back to shore. We had found a pod of dolphins, but sadly no whales. We were given the opportunity to...More

We loved our trip out with Ocean Extreme, not only was it an exciting and fun boat ride but we quickly caught up with a pair of humpbacks heading south that we tracked and then the icing on the cake were some Southern Right whales....More

Blake’s trip was terrific. His commentary is relaxed and knowledgeable and his ability to judge just where and when the whales will return to the surface makes all the difference. The boat is smooth and capable and there’s no need to feel nervous at all....More

This tour was easily a highlight of my trip to Sydney. We followed a pod of three humpbacks nearly the entire time we were out. Too many breaches to count, with even a few double breaches. Excellent experience. Thank you, Blake!

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

Hi, Unfortunately it doesn't start for a couple more weeks. Usually around the 15th. In the meantime we are doing our joyrides to Bondi Beach if that interests you. Cheers, Blake

I’d have thought so but better to check with Blake as it’s his responsibility as skipper. Hope that helps.
