Sydney Harbour is without a doubt the beating heart of the city and one of the most visited areas of Australia for tourists and citizens alike. It’s an incredibly beautiful area with impeccable shops, restaurants, and areas to socialise and take in the beauty of the harbor located right on the waterfront. There’s nothing the same as the sight of the waterfront at different points of the day when the sun hits it just so or whales come up from the depths to breach the waves.
Sydney is one of the best places in the world to go whale watching and Sydney Harbour is among the best places to see them in action.
Here, then, are a few tips to help you get the most out of your Sydney whale watching trip.
One of the biggest mistakes people make when heading out on a whale-watching expedition, or any other trip to the harbour or out the waves, is to forget how cool the temperature can get. Even though the sun may be out and shining, the temperature out on the water is bound to be cooler, to say nothing of the potential to get splashed. You thus want to bring a change of warm clothes with you that you wouldn’t mind getting wet.
Go at the Right Time
We all want to see whales breaching and being active. That said, ethical whale watching means making sure that these majestic animals are in no way disturbed or pulled out of their typical routine. As such, you want to make sure that you go at a time when the whales are active. The best time to see them is therefore during summer in Australia, when humpback whales have their mating season. If you want to see the humpbacks at their best, you’ll want to make sure to schedule a whale-watching expedition at this time.
Other Sea Creatures
While we all want to see whales while heading out on Sydney Harbour, they’re not the only sea creatures out there. Expeditions out on the water near Sydney can allow you to see all manner of other sea creatures, including dolphins.
Coming to Australia to see whales is always incredible. Seeing whales in the company of family, with friends, or on a romantic evening out with that special someone can make it all the more remarkable. The best outlets offering whale-watching expeditions in the Sydney area thus offer a wide range of fantastic group packages. You’ll be able to take advantage of these packages and book a whale-watching trip with family, friends, or that special someone.
Not only can you bring company along for the ride but you can likewise take advantage of great extras. Musical accompaniment, gourmet meals and wine, party boats — different expeditions offer different packages and perks so be sure to do your research and find the package that works for you.
Book the Sydney Harbour getaway of a lifetime by heading there this summer for a remarkable whale-watching expedition.
