Augusta: Whale Watching Tour

2. Augusta: Whale Watching Tour

Step on board and cruise Flinders Bay in style on board the Alison Maree, the sturdiest charter vessel in the South West. Everyone is treated as a VIP on board the vessel with complimentary access available to the Skippers lounge. Listen to old folk stories from Skipper Dundee or Jamie or head down the front of the vessel and learn the history and movements of the whales from the experienced on board Marine Biologist, ask them as many questions as you like. Enjoy a morning or afternoon tea consisting of a hot drink or water and help yourself to some biscuits. With a 99% success sighting rating, you are almost 100% guaranteed to see whales on your tour, if not you can join a tour again for free. The tours are family friendly and suitable for all ages. On average it takes about 7 minutes from departing the Marina until whales are sighted, with over 35000 Humpbacks migrating, binoculars aren't required, there's plenty to see. The cruise goes for approximately 2 hours in the sheltered waters of Flinders Bay, Augusta which is a resting place for the whales whilst on their northern migration. Quite often sighted here is the Southern Right whale - always amazing to see as they were once almost extinct from being hunted back in the whaling days, and due to their gestation period their populations haven't quite recovered as well as the Humpbacks.

What people are saying about Bunbury

It was an extremely enjoyable and informative session. The staff are all well informed and very attentive. Our grandchildren were shown great respect . Their questions were answered in a positive and engaging manner. All the staff members were awesome. They went above and beyond to make the experience happy and memorable. There is a lot to do there. Thank you

Personally I thought there was too many people on the boat. It was hard to go from side to side of the boat to see the whales, which was a shame. I did see a dolphin or two though.

Loved it and my daughter loved it. Alot of hands on things for the kids to do.
