Whale Watching Sydney has partnered with Tribal Warrior to bring you a new and unique Aboriginal whale watching experience during Sydney Solstice.

Join us for a 3hr whale watching cruise onboard Ocean Dreaming 2 and learn about Guriwil the whale and discover the connection and responsibility of Aboriginal communities to this important animal.

Along the east coast of New South Wales, the presence of whales in Aboriginal culture is embedded in many forms, from Dreaming stories to whales recognised as totem animals for various language groups. There are many significant sites of artwork depicting whales – particularly around Sydney.

An Aboriginal Elder and Aboriginal guide will lead you through the cruise and share their stories of land, water and sky which have been passed down from Aboriginal ancestors. Passengers can also participate in an ancient whale song to summon the whales.
