Winter has never given you a better reason to get rugged up and out of the house than for the highly anticipated annual whale migration. Fantasea Cruising offers our Central Coast and Northern Beaches guests an unforgettable opportunity for a scenic, educational and up-close encounter with our favourite charismatic creatures of the sea, the humpback whale.

Our well-known catamaran Fantasea Escapade provides for a thrilling whale watching tour from Palm Beach. Boasting plentiful seating and spacious observation areas. In no time at all you are sure to be as in awe of these graceful, gentle giants as we are.

With whale watching cruises departing from Palm Beach Friday to Sunday on both the Northern and Southern Migrations during school holidays, now is the perfect time to book your whale watching cruise. So get on board, the whales are waiting for you.

A Lovely Evening Cruise

"Great deal booked online and a really lovely 1 1/2 hrs cruising the harbour. We enjoyed the outdoor deck upstairs, but the inside area was just beautiful for those who preferred to be inside. Staff were lovely and overall experience was terrific. We were blessed with the weather... would highly recommend!"
