Great way to do the whale watch via speedboat. You get to see the whales pretty up close and also a nice way to see the beauty of the northern beaches on a fun ride. Totally worth the price

Don’t look any further, Captain Blake is the best person you can get. He’s so knowledgeable, fun, safety conscious and one hell of a boat captain. We had quite the windy weather but it just made things more exciting and unique, all because of his experience. Thank you ocean extreme.

It was such an incredible experience. It is by far the best whale watching experience I have been on, and I honestly don’t think it could have been any better. Blake is so knowledgable and friendly, and he coordinated it so well, everyone had a front-row seat! The photos provided afterwards were amazing, they are so perfect and a beautiful way to remember the day. I will definitely be recommending it to all my family and friends!

The boat was faster and slower than I expected. Flying through the water from whale pod to pod was an amazing thrill and being in a small boat able to idle along side their path let’s you feel close (but not too close) to the action. Blake was an excellent tour guide providing solid information about whales and migration habits. Having wind breaking jackets onboard is also a nice touch. I chose this particular tour because it had the highest rating on Viator and now I understand why.

Everything from seeing the whales, the knowledge of the tour guide to the amazing James Bond boat we travelled in.
