Get out on Sydney Harbour in two different ways with this tour package that combines a 2-day hop-on hop-off cruise pass and a whale-watching cruise. The hop-on hop-off cruise provides flexibility to visit up to 4 of the city's harbour precincts and can be used over two consecutive days. The whale-watching tour must be taken on the first day. Booking this combo tour gives you two popular tours at one convenient price and saves you the hassle of figuring out how to travel the harbour by boat. Sydney is the envy of Australia with a whale watching season that lasts over five months of the year. Over 20,000 Humpback whales make the 3,500km journey from sub-Antarctic waters to the Great Barrier Reef every year. Whale numbers peak off Sydney in June-July for the Northern migration to give birth, and September-October for the return southern migration. In August, whale behaviour is often more spectacular with younger males showing off with amazing breaches.


Get out on the water for an exciting morning onboard our whale watching cruise, with live commentary in English Explore Sydney Harbour and iconic sightseeing spots like the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Manly & Watsons Bay 2-Day Hop On Hop Off Explorer Pass with flexibility to visit 6 of Sydney's most popular areas. Whale Guarantee: If a whale is not sighted during your cruise, you'll be given the opportunity to cruise again for free
