Amazing and Soulful

We had a wonderful experience of whale watching yesterday. The food was good and tasty. The guided tour was well explained. One thing would like to add is that there was no rush , we were given enough time to watch whales as there were many, fortunately. If you are not sea sick when this is the best experience to enrich your life.

Sydney Harbour + Whale Watching.

Staff were super friendly and helpful. A wonderful experience going out through the Heads into the open sea. Not too rough, we were advised to take sea sickness tablets, which we did and felt fine all through the trip. We saw the whales-amazing! As well as dolphins on the way home. Thoroughly recommend this trip.

From Oz Whale Watching and Sydney Harbour Cruise Incl Lunch or Breakfast

Hi Liping Liu, Hope you are well today. I am very sorry to hear you were seasick. Unfortunately we do not provide these onboard. There is a variety of medications that can be used for seasickness and as we are not aware of client's medical history or of any potential allergies we are unable to judge what would be suitable. We do include in all our pre-departure information a section on seasickness which I have included below. "Our policy is that it's better to be safe than sorry! This is a 4-hour cruise in open water. Please, if you are unsure if you or any of your party will get motion sickness we STRONGLY recommend you consult a pharmacist or doctor for some readily available over the counter remedies. It can really make your day so much more awesome than it already will be!!" At check in, we also double check if clients have taken motion sickness medications and will also advise them to head to the nearby pharmacy prior to boarding.
