Whale Watching Cruise from Busselton, Augusta or Dunsborough

1. Whale Watching Cruise from Busselton, Augusta or Dunsborough

Enjoy an exciting and best value whale watching experience in Busselton, Augusta or Dunsborough. 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.

This was an awesome experience. Couldn't have asked for a better day. The team were very helpful and informative. They made sure we got the most from our cruise.

We enjoyed the boat trip and the skipper and his deckhand were very friendly and helpful. They stayed out extra time to make sure we got to see whales.

The excitement of getting a glimpse of the whales playing in the water is a very beautiful experience. The crew was very kind to check on everyone.

Friendly people and on our trip went longer to ensure we saw a much as possible looking forward to taking the Grandkids out.

The booking system was easy, the crew on the boat were lovely and the whole experience was great
