Visit Sydney’s aquatic residents then search for more out at sea
Marine lovers of all ages will be bouncing in their boat shoes for a chance to experience this underwater adventure combo. Sea Life Sydney and Captain Cook Cruises have set up a big day of aquatic exploration, starting with a visit to the aquarium and then hitting the waves for a whale watching cruise.
After a self-guided tour where you’ll encounter the aquarium’s shark, penguin and dugong residents, spot humpbacks and southern right whales on their annual migration. You’ll hop on the Rocket Ferry to jump across to Circular Quay, where your cruise vessel departs at 1.30pm. The two-and-a-half hour journey takes you past the Sydney Opera House, Fort Denison, through the Harbour headlands and out to the open ocean. And if you don’t catch a glimpse of a fin or spout, you’re guaranteed another free cruise.
Don't forget to pick up your tickets from the Captain Cook Cruises office at Darling Harbour before setting out for the day.
