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.

Dunsborough: Whale Watching Tour

2. 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.
