Whale Watching Flight  (60 mins)

Whale watching helicopter flights - Sydney

Through the months of June & July / September to November, Humpback and Southern Right whales follow a migratory path along the eastern seaboard of Australia. The coastal waters adjacent to Sydney Harbour are on this path.

As these great mammals are constantly on the move, your pilot will gather information from various sources including charter boats, media and the National Parks & Wildlife Service (NPWS) to gain sighting info.

Once airborne, we track via the Eastern shoreline of Botany Bay towards one of Australia's best known whale watching locations... Cape Banks. From here we head North along the Eastern suburb beaches towards Palm Beach & Broken Bay... With luck you will spot natures gentle giants, an amazing experience you will hold in your memory forever...

(Note: Flight can also be taken as a 45-minute option if you wish).
