About us

Ocean Extreme is a family owned business that started over 10 years ago and is the pioneer for the fast boat RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat) adventures within Australia. Ocean Extreme operates a 21 seater vessel called “Extreme 2”, which is a 12 meter long RIB powered by two 425 Horse Power engines. Ocean Extreme is proud to provide Sydney’s number one ranked whale watching and boat tour service according to Trip Advisor.

Covid19 Update

Whale Watching Season 2020 will run from mid May until late November!

In order to adhere to the strict social distancing regulations in place we will be operating Whale Watching tours with only 9 passengers instead of our usual 21. This will be a premium and very personal experience. Similar to a private charter.

Please also be assured that we will be taking all the proper safety precautions regarding Covid19. Including, but not limited to, spacing passengers onboard, sterilising the handrails and seats on the boat before and after each trip and hand sanitiser and gloves will be available for all customers.

We hope to see you at some point this season.

El Capitan

**If whales are not spotted on a whale watching tour, each passenger will be issued with a ticket to come on another whale watching tour for free. The new ticket will be valid for 12 months from the date that we are permitted to operate at full capacity again (21 passengers).

Whale Watching

Ocean Extreme prides itself on offering the most exciting and personal whale watching cruise departing from Sydney.

The whale watching season runs annually from mid May through until late November.


Offshore Adventure Rides

Our famous Bondi Bash Offshore Thrill Ride will resume in November 2020 and run through the summer until May 2021!

We depart from Circular Quay for a 1 hour experience through the harbour, out the heads at high speed before heading down the coast to Bondi and back again.


  • "Absolutely brilliant! We thoroughly enjoyed this trip - well, it’s whale watching so say no more. But, if you’re trying to decide which tour to book, just book this with Blake."
  • "Ocean Extreme and its captain, Blake, we're absolutely incredible! …It’s not every day you get this kind of service. The experience itself was amazing with interesting facts about Australian sea life, speedy turns and massive whales and dolphins at a arms reach."
    Michael Miguel
  • "This was an extraordinary & fun way to spend an afternoon on the harbour - well organised, safe and an adrenaline pumping ride in the high-speed inflatable … highlighted by the incredible up-close views of the outside cliffs & escarpments & caves, a seal colony and different views of Bondi & Bronte beaches."
