What a wonderful experience. My sisters and I drove down from bunbury, and agreed we'd be happy if we just saw one whale. We'd done that before the anchor was even pulled up! Lost count of how many of these beautiful creatures we saw, with the seals on Flinders Island and the views of the lighthouse and bay making it... More

The weather beat us on 11th July, as the weather turned really sour in Augusta! We were lucky enough to return the next day and to a much calmer day. My six year old and I were welcomed on-board and we settled in for a breathtaking experience. The skipper and crew are very knowledgeable (great sense of humour too). We... More

Although it was cold, and the sea is choppy, the crew was very professional and knowledgeable in ensuring that we have a great experience. They were able to provide much information about whales and dolphin, including their diet, habitats, migrations and many other stuffs. It can be seen that they are very eco-conscious, steering the boat very gently and in... More

There are NO bad points here!! We booked onto the Whale Watching tour and the fun began from the moment the skipper came over to greet us. He had an understated humour that grabbed your attention from the start and kept us all involved throughout the trip. Even the compulsory safety lectures prior to departure were delivered with humour and... More

This was at Augusta on a wintry cold day with some rain at the end. We were both well rugged up and had our beanies to keep the ears warm. Slightly rough weather with about 2m swell found my wife and me sitting at the stern (good for her double knee replacement lack of balance problem) watching the broaching whales.... More

Great crew and boat. Very knowledgeable and entertaining captain who gave a constant commentary on the whales, seals and other animals we saw. Also the history of the area. Went a little over time to ensure we could see as much as possible.

I thought I was cursed to never see a whale before this trip! My husband booked us in for my thirtieth birthday and we didn't see a lot of whales but Mal went above and beyond to make sure we saw at least one, staying out well past our return time until we saw one of these amazing creatures right...

If you have never been whale watching before and want to make sure your first time is a memorable one make sure you book with naturalist charters in dunsborough. We discovered these guys 2years ago and have gone out with them now 7 times. Mal the skipper loves his job and it shows he is very good at tracking the... More
