  • From Exmouth: 2-Hour Sunset Humpback Whale-Watching Tour

    1. From Exmouth: 2-Hour Sunset Humpback Whale-Watching Tour

    Watch humpback whales tail slapping and frolicking whilst sipping a glass of bubbles and watching the sunset over the magnificent Cape Range on a cruise from Exmouth. This time of the evening is when the gulf calms off to glassy conditions. Witness the whales in their natural habitat as your experienced crew teaches you all about these fantastic creatures. The whales are happy playing around, which makes for a great end to everyone's day. At this time of year, you might see mothers with their calves, teaching them the skills required to transverse the oceans back to Antarctica. With lots of action, there will be great opportunities for photographers to get that special shot. Your friendly crew will chat about the interesting behavior of the whales and answer any questions you might have.  The tour will include complimentary bubbles or beer at sunset, food platters, nibbles, tea, coffee...

  • Coral Bay: 3-Hour Whale Watching Experience

    2. Coral Bay: 3-Hour Whale Watching Experience

    Enjoy a leisurely cruise in style on board of a spacious multi-level luxury boat. Sit back, relax, and take in the sights and scenery as you travel the short journey to the whales' playground. The humpback whales migrate through Coral Bay from June to October each year. Visit these incredible and inquisitive mammals in their natural environment to watch them playing, tail-slapping, breaching, waving, slapping their massive pectoral fins, rolling, and even sleeping. Because the local waters are a safe-haven for migrating whales, it is common to see resting mothers and calves as they frolic in the calm waters of Bateman's Bay. Not only can you see the iconic humpback whales, there is also the chance to encounter many other marine animals such as turtles, dolphins, dugong, and other whale species throughout this trip. The tour departs runs for three hours, and your friendly and knowledge...

    The guides were full of information and couldn’t do enough to assist you. Morning tea both savoury and sweet and a glass of bubbles to end a fantastic experience. Highly recommend this activity

    It was a great tour with a nice and careful tour guide. We have seen a lot in the short time. The tour was perfect organized. The only thing I would change would be the first hostel we stayed. The rest of the accommodations where fine or very nice. I really appreciated the group spirit and all the stops at the petrol stations or at a shop on our way we made. They where looking good after us and we had a great time.
