Company Values

Our values drive the experiences of what we do at work and how we do things. 

Our values energise, motivate and help us move to action. When we care about something with feeling or passion, when we truly value it, we can clear the clutter and move through our lives with greater meaning and purpose.

Clarity about values provides the underlying foundation for the way we work together. Our values represent the spirit and essence of our culture. They help establish what is important in our communication and relationships with our employees, Members and suppliers.


We’re proactive, optimistic and we always strive for better. We are passionate about what we do. We care about our Members, we’re proud of our heritage and we know the work we do really matters.


We have the courage to challenge the status quo. We speak out when we think there’s a better way and we encourage other to do the same. We’re not afraid to try new things.


We’re humble. We put other before ourselves and we always put the customer first. We listen and we do things with empathy, care and respect.


We take ownership for our actions, our decisions and the experience we deliver our Members and customers. We work side by side to find solutions to our customers’ needs – and if we don’t get it right, we own it, learn from it and take responsibility for fixing it.

Great shot by one of our regulars @wongymark1 taken onboard our cruises yesterday!

Fingers crossed for some more action today! :)
We are now 4 days into our whale watching season and have seen whales every day.

Mostly whales were just swimming along with the occasional hint at some activity, but the first proper breaching trip remains elusive. 

With whale numbers increasing daily, i am sure this is just a matter of days until we strike lucky. 

Quite often its just a case of right place right time, as some of the whales we had watched over the last 4 days did breach before or after we watched them...!

Maybe today is the day? 😎
Whales on all of our cruises today with varying degrees of success watching them! 😅

BUT it is a start to our 2022 whale watching season, and i am sure we will see many more over the coming weeks!

Fingers crossed for the first breach of the season tomorrow! 😎
It all begins next Saturday!

Only 6 days until the start of our 2022 whale watching season! Whales have already been sighted off our coastline, with one reported breaching off Kiama yesterday and a sighing off Bondi Beach a couple of days ago.

Here is a great shot from a couple of years ago with a mother and calf just outside the harbour entrance and our flagship vessel Ocean Dreaming 2 in the background sporting its old livery. 

We unveiled a new-look by Gomeroi artist Warwick Keen back in June 2021 to mark the commencement of our Aboriginal Whale Watching Experience which may very well see a return in 2022!

We hope to welcome you onboard one of our many whale watching cruises real soon!
As far as breaches go, this one is a solid 10 out of 10! 🚀

Exactly 2 weeks until we can show this to you again, but who is counting 🤣
Lets keep the whale photos coming to get you in the mood for our 2022 season which starts in 2 weeks!! 🤩

Here is a great one from a couple of seasons back, just outside the harbour entrance at a place called Diamond Bay, which seems to be a bit of a hot spot for whale activity. 

Quite often we see a change in behaviour here, but as with many whale behaviours we don't really know why.... We have plenty of theories of course which we will happily share with you onboard 😎

Lets hope we are off to an equally impressive start this year. We can not wait to take you out there...! 🤞
Less than 3 weeks until the start of our 2022 whale watching season! 🥳
