Full description
Enjoy an exciting and best value whale watching experience in Busselton, Augusta or Dunsborough. Check-in at Busselton Jetty, Augusta Boat Harbor or Quindalup Boat Ramp, then climb aboard the Tradewind III. Cruise out into the pristine waters to see these lovable marine giants up close. Migrating humpback and southern right whales leave the cold, food rich Antarctic waters and begin arriving around June. Augusta, Busselton and Dunsborough are perfectly placed to view these spectacular wild animals as they make their way past, often stopping off for a rest and play. Geographe Bay, with its usually calm and sheltered waters, means a guided whale watching tour is the best way to see magnificent humpback and southern right whales up-close.

Awesome weather. The total group was not too big which gave us all plenty of room to move freely about the boat. The Skipper and first mate Matt we’re keeping watch for the Whales. They did the work and we admired and took photos:) So glad we ticked this off our bucket list!

Good customer service and clean boat

Unlucky day for whale watching, however. overall a good service was provided. We’d suggest the booking website is corrected with the correct boarding address. We went to the address on our tickets and ultimately had to phone the service provider and rush to the correct address which was kilometre away.

The entire crew were amazing, they gave a detailed safety briefing, a great introduction as to what to expect, and made us feel very welcomed and at ease on the very comfortable boat. We managed to spot quite a lot of whales throughout the time out at sea. The experience was indescribable and we had a lot of fun! We were simply in awe of the entire experience. A humbling experience as well whilst looking at those majestic creatures. Will definitely motivate everyone to protect and conserve our environment. Overall a great trip to be close to nature. Great outfit to go whale watching with!
