An unforgettable experience with our children, the day of the 18 years of our youngest! We feel very small compared to the beauty of these cetaceans. We highly recommend Ocean Extrem. Blake, thank you for the explanations and photos! A French family!

From the start, Blake - our Captain, was friendly, warm, and informative. He gave us a good idea and up front honesty with the simple fact that there may be a chance that we might not see anything, let alone whales. This is due tonight...More

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. Great service from start to finish. Just make sure you’ve checked where the pick...More

great trip out in the ocean, but what made the trip great was the skipper. His knowledge and ability to keep you engaged were great. Defintely a return trip is warranted!

Had a great day whale watching. Saw two humpbacks a mother and calf and stayed with them for a very long time. This tour gets you out there faster and closer to the whales than the big boats. We got loads of pictures and videos...More

The Rocks
The first residents of the Rocks were convicts and
sailors from the old nation. As the oldest
neighbourhood in the city, the area's cobblestone
streets host more than 100 heritage sites and
buildings, including the oldest house in Sydney,
Camden Cottage, which was built in 1816. Taste a “midi
“ or a “schooner” of beer and dine “al fresco” on the
waterfront at some of the oldest pubs in Sydney. The

Hi, Yes there is a life jacket for every passenger located under each seat. They are not required to be worn for the journey. We do a safety demonstration before we depart. No one has ever fallen out of the boat.

Hi, Unfortunately it doesn't start for a couple more weeks. Usually around the 15th. In the meantime we are doing our joyrides to Bondi Beach if that interests you. Cheers, Blake
