Fantasea Cruising Sydney, operators of Sydney Seven Wonders Coastline adventure cruises, a day trip covering the seven most iconic sights on Sydney's waterways and coast, have added whale watching as a no-cost bonus - with a guarantee.
Angus Campbell, General Manager of Fantasea Cruising Sydney announced "From May to November, our whale watching season, all guests travelling with us on a Seven Wonders cruise will also get the opportunity to see humpback whales as we return from Port Hacking back to Sydney Harbour. We are so confident they will see whales we are offering our Whale Watching Guarantee. If you don't see a whale then we will provide you with a complimentary ticket on one of our Fantasea Whale Watching cruises."
"The Seven Wonders Cruise provides the opportunity to experience the harbour and coastal highlights of Sydney in one day. From inner harbour sites to historical monuments plus whales, there is no better way to experience what the city has to offer. Adding to the experience, our onboard team will provide expert commentary, pointing out places of special interest as we move from place to place. With access to a secluded beach to relax and unwind, this is a trip that has something for everyone.
The highest rating of all Fantasea Cruising Sydney coastal adventures, the Seven Wonders Cruise is popular with interstate and overseas travellers. Sydney locals too are now also enjoying exploring from the water - a special way to introduce visitors to Sydney, harbour and coast.
The six hour Seven Wonders adventure cruise departs Darling Harbour on Thursdays and Sundays at 10.30am, providing spectacular views of the Harbour Bridge, Opera House, Sydney Heads and Bondi Beach, before heading to Botany Bay and Captain Cook's first landing place where he first stepped ashore in 1770.
After lunch ashore in Port Hacking, time is spent at Bundeena in the Royal National Park viewing ancient indigenous rock carvings, before heading back to Sydney Harbour to view Manly and Middle Head, returning to Darling Harbour. Throughout the tour the crew are constantly looking for opportunities to spend time with the marine wildlife, especially during the whale migration season.
