Absolutely worth every Dollar! Going with the speedboat itself is quite an adventure but seeing the wales come out of the water leaves you speechless... Blake makes this a very individual trip and when he heard there was a chance to even see killer whales...More

This is an excellent way to spend a few hours in Sydney, even if you've been whale watching before but especially if you have not. Blake was an excellent guide and coordinated well to give us the best chance to see some whales and dolphins...More

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, Yes there is a life jacket for every passenger located under each seat. They are not required to be worn for the journey. We do a safety demonstration before we depart. No one has ever fallen out of the boat.

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
