We took a boat ride on International Talk Like a Pirate day, but the whole trip was blessedly short of pirate invective. However, there were Humpbacks and Dolphins galore. We had a short boat ride out to the waiting whalewatching vessel, and after a safety briefing which was notable for being short, funny and informative, we set off into the... More

These guys rock. Not only are the tours on a reasonably sized vessel, the commentary from the skipper is informative and they almost guarantee finding either Humpback or Southern Right Whales, even Blue Whales later in the year. They are also ecologically minded, so we shared 'our' whales with a less successful boat by moving on after we'd been thoroughly... More

Wow, that was an incredible day on board Naturaliste Charters tour. The crew were awesome, knowledgeable and very entertaining and we had a long interaction with the whales. I was really impressed when the captain told us if another tour came close to these whales that we wouldn't stay if the whales were under stress and we'd go find even... More

Thanks to Mal and crew for a great day on the water, made even better by whales and dolphins found just offshore. Your lighthearted humour was appreciated and casually professional approach was perfect. See you again soon no doubt

We went on the whale watching tour from Augusta before the whales migrate further north. Our problem was that we had an impression in our minds of being amongst whales and seeing them close up around the boat, and it disappointingly turned out to be not like that at all. It took about 45 minutes to find a whale and... More

I took the opportunity to go out watching whales with Captian Mal in Augusta this season. In one day I saw a pod of dolphins including a baby on the way out to the boat, seal off the close to shore reef, southern right whales and calfs including the rare white baby and humpbacks dancing in the bay. It was... More

Whale watching has long been on my bucket list, so I was glad to get the chance to do it whilst in Western Australia. Fun and informative commentary throughout and although we only saw a couple of whales it was well worth the $80 fee for the two hour trip. Coffee and tea available on the boat, which didn't go...
