Such an experience! We're able to see a pair of whales and a seal

Really enjoyed the cruise. On the way, we saw a cute seal before spotting a pair of whales. Loved that the staff kept a safe distance from the whales, for everyone to watch. The crew were really helpful with looking after those who were seasick. Tip: Just eat something small if you're prone to sea sickness :)

A fantastic experience with Experience Oz in Sydney

I can't express how fantastic my recent whale-watching cruise in Sydney was. I experienced immense satisfaction through Experience Oz. The cruise through Sydney bay during sunset was truly amazing. I highly recommend Experience Oz for anyone looking for a remarkable and trustworthy experience, no matter where you are.

Good and relaxed experience. Loved whale season.

We chose to watch whales during whale season in Sydney, Australia. It was a good sunny day and plenty of whales to follow around. A relaxed experience of whale watching and we enjoyed it very much. Loved the experience. Highly recommend it to anyone!!
