Dunsborough: Whale Watching Tour

1. Dunsborough: Whale Watching Tour

Step on board the luxury vessel, Alison Maree, for a 2.5 hour scenic whale watching cruise in the pristine waters of Geographe Bay. Enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit whilst you marvel at the sight of a pod of Humpback whales - with over 35000 Humpbacks migrating through the bay with their young, there is plenty to see. Humpback Whales are the playful ones, you can often see them breach, spy hop, and be very playful and friendly - no binoculars required. In the months of October and November the mighty Blue Whale is also often sighted, these whales are the largest living animal on the planet so it is an amazing feeling to look at these whales in awe with their graceful yet large presence. Dolphins are often seen riding the ship's bow, you will want to be standing up the front of the boat to get the best glimpse of these beautiful agile creatures. Not only is this an amazing whale watching cruise but the scenery is stunning; cruise along Eagle Bay, Castle Rock, Bunker Bay, and past the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse.

From Busselton: Half-Day Coastal and Wildlife Eco Tour

2. From Busselton: Half-Day Coastal and Wildlife Eco Tour

The northern Margaret River Region has stunning coastal scenery, and is brimming with life both above and below the water, and you can see it all on this jam-packed half-day eco tour. With the region’s only live underwater video feed direct to the tour vehicle, plus local knowledge of the best nature and wildlife viewing locations, this truly is an exceptional morning out. A complimentary glass of local wine or boutique beer and food platter will be served in the national park. The first tour stop allows you to experience amazing vistas of Geographe Bay and find out about its historical and ecological significance, then journey through the Meelup Regional Park’s woodland to the next stop, the Ngari Marine Park. Here, conditions permitting, your guide will launch a “live action” underwater camera showing you the unique and diverse marine life that calls Geographe Bay home.  Drive out to Bunker Bay via a very picturesque road that takes you within a couple of metres of azure water and rock pools, before arriving at the ancient and awe inspiring limestone cliffs of Cape Naturaliste, viewing them first from below, and then a short walk will take you above the cliffs, offering majestic views. Continuing on to the rugged and contrasting west coast, keep a look out for the playful Bottlenose Dolphins, (and whales and wildflowers in season) while walking along the coastal track with views of deserted beaches and stunning granite formations. After this mini walk stop to refuel with some delicious local refreshments at Sugarloaf Rock. On the return to your selected drop-off point, see large mobs of western grey kangaroos lounging in the sun.

We had an awesome day out . There was plenty of space on the boat to sit and enjoy and watch the whales without crowding . We had an amazing view of a whale with a baby whale . The whales stayed around for at least an hour delighting us with their actions .The time flew by . We had opportunity to ask questions and all questions were treated with respect .We loved the joy and enthusiasm the crew showed about the whales ,they were so pleased we got a good viewing .

A lovely morning spent in Geographe Bay watching whales. We were so lucky to not only see Humbacks with their calves but a blue whale with her calf. Dolphins also came out to play in the bow wave of the boat. A wonderful experience that is definitely recommended.

Had such an amazing day. Saw heaps of humpbacks and was lucky enough to see some blue whales. The guides were great and learnt a lot about whales from them! Would highly recommend.

What an awesome time! A large and modern boat with crew that really know their stuff, they made sure we got the most out of our time on the water, I can’t recommend them enough

Wonderful experience, crew were very friendly and informative and made sure we all had the best opportunities to see as many whales as possible.
