South West Whale Watching Cruises

Between June and November, along the Western Australian coastline, the Humpback Whale migration occurs. They move from the temperate waters off South West Australia to the tropical breeding grounds in the Kimberley region of North West Australia. The largest population of Humpback Whales grace the shorelines during this time of the year – calling for some whale watching action in the South West.

The South West holds the title for being the best whale watching spot in Western Australia. From Busselton and Dunsborough to Augusta, Bremer Bay and others, there are various whale watching destinations to choose from. 

Why Choose Us?

We have curated a list of the best whale watching tours in the South West by selecting top cruises from each region. Depending on the time of visit, budget, destination, and other tour inclusions, you can choose from a wide range of cruises. Whale watching has never been easier!

Most cruises offer a whale guarantee policy – in case of no whale sightings, you can enjoy a free return cruise next time. And depending on the season, you can encounter not just Humpback Whales, but Southern Right Whales, Minke Whales, Blue Whales, the notorious Killer Whales, and other marine life.

Whale Encounters

The close proximity to the shorelines means you don’t need much time to spot a splash once you board a vessel. During May to August, tours from Augusta offer you a unique opportunity as Southern Rights and Humpbacks interact, play and play around in Flinders Bay. Watch them slice through the waves, leap out of the water, and whip their tails in spectacular whale fashion, right from the comfort of your cruise!

From September to early December, you can choose to cruise from Dunsborough or Busselton to the iconic Geographe Bay, where mother whales now rest with their newborn calves. Unwind on the purpose-built vessel as the whales impress you with their acrobats – breaches, tail flukes, rollovers and flips!
From January to early April, you can watch the largest congregation of orcas in the Bremer Canyon off of Bremer Bay. From the safety of a vessel, you can watch these apex predators in their natural habitat, often in a feeding frenzy!

So get out there on the waters and watch some of nature’s mightiest creations in their home! Book a cruise today.
