About this Cruise


All of our Sunset Cruises take place in the first two weeks of October. This is the peak of the southern migration with a large number of whales passing each day close to shore.

This will ensure that there is plenty of choice when it comes to watching the best whales possible. Daylight savings will have started on the 1st of October as well, giving us an extra hour of whale watching.

The cruise is led by our professional photographer Jonas, who has been taking pictures of whales in Sydney for the last 10 years, making him the most experienced guide you could hope for. He will make sure that we are always in the best possible spot and that you get the best pictures possible sharing his wild life photography knowledge with you.

This cruise is both suited for keen photographers trying to get the shot of a life time and of course for everyone else who would like to be part of this magical experience. Jonas will provide his photos for you after the cruise via a dropbox link.

We also include a ticket for our 3hr Discovery Cruise valued at $79 which you could use on the day of your Sunset Cruise for the ultimate day of whale watching or on a day of your choosing.

About Totally Wild

Totally Wild

Totally Wild is the obvious choice for our Sunset Cruise with its low vantage point and high speed!

This custom built high speed whale watching vessel usually seats 27, but we have limited numbers to less than half of that to ensure plenty of space for each of our guests.

This is our fastest boat in the fleet with over 700hp reaching top speeds of around 80km/h. We will get you from Darling Harbour to the open ocean as quick as possible to ensure maximum whale watching time.

As it sits very close to the water you get a great vantage point resulting in dramatic and spectacular images. Just imagine a breaching whale as the sun sets with the city skyline as backdrop.
