Whale Watching Charter – July 2022

By March 29, 2022No Comments

Come to Sargood on Collaroy and experience a Whale Watching trip to remember aboard ‘Fishfinder’!

This 4hr tour starts off at the privately booked Clontarf Marina where the boat will head out through middle harbour towards the Sydney heads, giving you an amazing view of some of Sydney’s most prized real-estate.

From there you will have the best seat in the house as the boat takes you through the Sydney heads along the towering cliff edges of North head National Park.

The boats skipper Tony has been operating charters out of Sydney Harbour for over 25 years: with an abundance of local knowledge he is sure to get you on the spot for some breath-taking whale encounters! There’s even rumours he can speak whale so you’re in good hands.

Bring your camera, hat and sunglasses, this trip is one not to be missed!

About the boat:
Join us aboard Fishfinder, a fast, 45ft. Harriscraft from Western Australia in full USL 2C, 3C, 1E Survey, powered by a Cummins 450 hp engine. Access to the boat is via onboard hoist.
