The boat trip in general was fine except for the fact that we did not see any whales, not even from far away or so. Nothing. Other tourists told us afterwards, that there were no whales in the bay for the last 2 days and our day was the 3rd day without whales then. The sign in front of the... More

This was my 5th time out whale watching with Skipper Mal and deckie Rhett. Although the whales were a little elusive at first we then saw numerous Humpbacks, some of which came very close to the vessel. Mal and Rhett are both very knowledgeable and the outing is not only enjoyable but also educational. I will be back to see... More

Had a great time out on the boat, as always. The whales can be a little elusive at times but Skipper Mal just knows where to find them. Seeing these wonderful creatures takes your breath away! Would recommend this tour to all.

My partner and I went out whale watching with these guys. We had a good time and saw whales and dolphins. I'd recommend it if you're there at the right time of year. The boat is great; bathroom facilities, tea & coffee, soft drinks etc. All you need for 2 hours at sea. Also we actually stayed out for 2.5... More

Hubby and I went whale watching through this company and it was awesome. Seen whales, mother and calf on the sunset cruise. The guys were excellent and I would book with them again.

By far the best whale-watching tour we experienced in WA. Mal's approach is to head to where the whales usually pass and wait with engines on idle - this way the whales come to the boat. We enjoyed the company of four humpbacks circling us for an hour. Amazing close-up experience. All other tours we took (from Perth, Coral Bay,... More

Drove visitors from England two and a half hours and paid $210 for this trip. We were very disappointed that as soon as we found a mother and baby, we just crawled along next to them for two hours, in shallow water close to the shore. It seemed like it was easier for the crew to do this than make... More

We saw multiple whales and got quite close without spooking them. We got to see a family of whales ?educating their calf on how to slap water with the best of them. The charter company obviously knows how to not impact too much on the ecology they are touring.

We had a wonderful time whale watching with these guys! They were really informative and super friendly. The boat was great with free hot and soft drinks and biscuits. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience, including our 12 year old daughter. These guys really know their stuff and are obviously passionate about their work. I would strongly recommend this company... More
