Owner description: Manly Ocean Adventures is the home of the 'Whale Watching Safari,' Sydney's smallest, most personal and most exciting whale watching adventure. Our high speed adventure vessel will get you to the whales quicker than anybody else. Our completely open vessel offers unobstructed views of these majestic animals. Our low position in the water offers you unparalleled, up-close viewing opportunities of the whales, dolphins, penguins and even the occasional seal or shark.

The whole experience was amazing and so much fun! Blake was able to find a humpback whale as soon as we got out to sea, 'harry the humpback' spent the whole time around our boat, even looked like he was posing for photos. Blake was a the best guide, enthusiastic and funny with lots of whale facts. Can't believe how close we were to the whale, such a incredible experience!

Absolutely fantastic experience. We didn't only see whales, we also saw dolphins and seals. Blake was full of knowledge and made sure everyone had a good position to view the whales. The speed boat ride awesome, the whales fantastic and very close, the seals and dolphins a bonus. If Blake (the captain) saw something that would interest us he would stop and point it out to everyone. He even took us to a spot he knows has lots of seals. Can't recommend this more highly. Go on this you will not be disappointed.

Blake is an amazing captain. He was very respectful of both the whales and the seals that we saw. However, the highlight of the trip was definitely being on the boat as Blake pounded up and over the waves. An amazing experience, but not for the faint of heart.

Amazing experience, the whale watching tour should be on the list of things to do for all those visiting Sydney! We even got to see some dolphins! Thank you Blake! Best boat around too!

Blake the captain of the 24 person zodiac new exactly where to go and wait, within minutes we had two Humpback Whales coming over to say hi. This was truly worth the money. Cameras are safe just be careful of spray.
