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.

great afternoon out, lucky with weather as we could get all the way down to Cape Naturaliste and we spotted about 8 whales at different times. They were all heading South so we were lucky to have seen them before they disappeared around the Cape on their way to Antartica. The boat is clean and comfortable, the Captain followed Whales that were spotted but didn't get in close, leaving it to the animals to approach us. The marine Biologist was very knowledgeable. all the crew were charming and accommodating.

Loved every minute of it. The crew were amazing and friendly. Saw dolphins and humpback whales, 2 mums and their babies. They were playing and put on an awesome display. So happy I finally went along and had the chance to experience the magnificence of the ocean

take warm waterproof clothes and soft shoes to maximize your experience

It was the experience of a lifetime as we saw Blue Whales
