Wonderful day, appreciated the students/ seniors discount. Lots of whales, friendly crew. Was worried about the sea after last weeks record swells , but fairly calm, big well equipped boat made it comfortable. Another one off the bucket list. Thank you Naturliste charters

Within 10 minutes, spotted our first pod of whales, Australian sea lion and dolphins were also close by. Moved to second pod with lots of breaching and fin banging. An excellent experience, crew very friendly and full of knowledge and bad jokes. A highlight of this trip.

We really enjoyed our whale watching tour. The boat was great there was lots of room and great viewing points. The guys were really knowledgeable and told us all lots of interesting facts about the whales and the bay. There were a couple of small negatives however, the driver constantly complained about the other charter companies. In my opinion this... More

Several people were sick but the guys did what they could to look after the, and help them to feel better. We were privileged to see several whales and have 3 breach not... More

We booked our whale watching cruise out of the newly built gorgeous Augusta, WA harbour and hands down it was FABULOUS!!! Beautiful weather & yes, yes, yes....We spotted whales & one young male humpback came right up to the boat!!! Extra treat were the dolphins that joined us in wake joy rides. Have amazing photos & videos to prove it.... More

Early in the whale watching season but Naturaliste Charters did not fail to deliver. Kicked off with the funniest safety demonstration ever then cruised out in calm waters in the May sun. Perfect weather and I even will call out seeing our first humpback whilst chatting to Rhett, our friendly deck hand. Thanks for a fantastic morning guys. See you... More

We always thought that we would have to travel as far as Canada to see Killer Whales but when we heard about the opportunity to see them in WA, we were stoked !! The Expedition tour run by Naturaliste Charters lived up to all expectations - yes we did have to journey out a way but that did not worry... More

but......we were unable to flush the toilet....really horrible.....and the tap in the hand basin was corroded and rusted and did not work. One unfortunate staff member was very busy with a bucket of sea water:) I wrote to the company complaining and was told that they had now supplied some hand sanitiser. I consider this a very inadequate solution to... More

Alison C, Owner at Naturaliste Charters, responded to this review

We thanked our guest via email for informing us of the issue with the toilet that day. This was a very unusual situation, and upon query to the crew we discovered what happened regarding the toilet. It was actually due to loss of power to certain parts of the boat. Unfortunately it affected the toilet facilities. Everything runs through electric... More

The day started well for the first 5 minutes till we hit open water. Then the stomach started to stir. 1.5 hrs of big swell to get to the Canyon where the Orcas can be found. I took a sea sick pill but alas it had no effect. I usually don't get sea sick but I wasn't prepared for the... More
