“Amazing experience!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We had a trip with Cameron, Stephanie and Belinda on the 30th August. Within about 10 minutes of being out, we saw the first lot of whales and it didn't really stop after that. We saw quite a few pods of mum, nanny and baby and some couples as well. Cameron was great, he didn't chase the whales but waited for them to come to us.
Great value for money, a whole afternoon on the ocean. Great nibbles, Stephanie and Belinda made sure everyone was given attention and never needed for anything.
Sunset on the way home was an added bonus.
Would definitely recommend this trip for anyone going to Broome!

“Well worth it”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Cameron and Stephanie were welcoming and knew so much about the whales. Really happy that they didn't chase after mothers and calves who weren't interested in hanging around the boat. We had a great day and would definitely book their boat for another trip out.

“Fantastic day out off Broome.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We had a wonderful Day of whale watching on Trade Winds... The Boat is exceptionally clean and stable. The Crew are very Friendly with a good knowledge of Whales. We saw heaps of whales, which came incredibly close to the boat even though we had pulled up a good distance from them. Saw females suckling their young and males Breaching. There were too man whales to Count. Cameron the Skipper made us feel safe, informed and entertained. The trip is good value finishing with a beautiful sunset on the water... Do it.

“Absolutely great!”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Broome Whale Watching has been operating for six years and is dedicated to just whale watching, that is the main reason I chose them, I was not disappointed! Within 30 minutes the boat stopped in perfect conditions about 120m from a pair of whales, they were so inquisitive they just came over to have a look at us looking at them and stayed for nearly an hour. What fantastic animals!
After that we saw about another four pairs of whales and some dolphins. For those that are really into photography and have cameras with large telephoto lenses, I found my 24-105mm lens more than adequate, even a "point and shoot" will do. I took some great shots , also some good videos with my point and shoot.
The captain’s name is Cameron and he is also the tour operator, a very friendly and approachable person and always willing to share his knowledge of whales. His offsider was Stefanie, a real character who not only looked after everyone and brought out nibbles and cold soft drinks, but also gave some information on the whales. You can if you wish have BYO.
This was a great experience and I have no complaints at all!
I give it a "must do" recommendation!
