We are Sydney's most personal & exciting whale watching experience!

We operate Sydney’s fastest whale watching vessels with daily departures from Circular Quay, Manly Wharf and Rose Bay from mid May until early November.

Our Boats


Extreme used to be the fastest commercial vessel in Sydney… until we built Orca. Powered by twin 425 horsepower V8 engines, this 11.3 metre rigid inflatable vessel can reach speeds of up to 45 knots. The completely open design of Extreme, along with its lower position in the water, offers an unparalleled, unobstructed and up close viewing experience. Passenger capacity is limited to only 21 for a personal, boutique tour. The minimum age is 12 years old.


Added to the Ocean Extreme fleet in 2023, Osprey is a 12.5 metre rigid inflatable boat powered by triple 300 horsepower engines. It is capable of reaching speeds of up to 41 knots. This vessel has regular seating as opposed to the straddle seating on Extreme and slightly more room to move around. The minimum age is 6 years old.


This is now Sydney’s fastest commercial vessel with a top speed of 49 knots. It is also our smallest vessel with a passenger limit of only 12 passengers creating an incredibly personal experience. Orca is in constant communication with Osprey and Extreme to find the most active and approachable whale pods.
