A great day out on rough seas
Aug 2020
We had an excellent day on the water in search of humpback whale sightings. It was our choice to go in late August, which we knew was near the end of the season. Regardless, we had some good sightings of a group of three humpbacks. Despite the rough seas it was all very exciting. We also enjoyed watching a group of albatross elegantly wheeling through the air behind the boat.
The boat was very comfortable and the crew were excellent. As I said, the sea was very rough on the day we went out, but the crew did their best to keep us all safe and comfortable. A bonus was getting an email afterwards with professional photos of all we saw on the day. Once I realised we were getting this I stopped trying to take pictures and just enjoyed the experience.
If we did this again we would seriously consider the Captain's Lounge Upgrade. It looked pretty nice in there.

Fantastic, would definitely recommend the trip.
Jul 2020
It was such a good experience. The Staff were so knowledgeable, even if we had not seen any whales it would have been a great experience. The boat was big and very comfortable, with plenty of room to move around, or just sit.
We were so lucky and saw a whale feeding on a shoal of bait fish. Yes I thought that whales only eat plankton, but not all the time, they sometimes eat these small fish. We were also lucky enough to see a mother and baby whale. The mothers are so protective of their young.
It was a wonderful 2 hours spent and I would highly recommend it.
We were on an afternoon tour out of Augusta.

Thank you so much for your kind words, it was such a special afternoon to sight both a feeding juvenile Humpback and Humpback mother and calf which are unusual sightings for Flinders Bay but a great example of how exciting and unique working with wildlife can be! We hope to welcome you onboard again in the near future and wishing you the safest of travels ahead till then😊

Wild, beautiful and informative
Jul 2020 • Family
So many whales! We were blessed to see competition pods racing around, breaching, huffing, and tail flapping. The lady commentating on the activity was amazingly knowledgeable, full of fascinating information. It was however a little rough, and many got sea sick (including myself) however, those who were sick were beautifully cared for by very attentive staff. Don’t let sea sickened hold you back! Great trip for teens too!

A simply stunning morning. The captain, first officer, and their daughters who were our crew and environmental advisors and photographers....
Provided a magnificent journey.
The knowledge this family has of our local whale population is second to none.... they treat every animal with respect as far as following distances etc.
They explain beautifully what you are seeing, and why thw whales do what they do.

The captains lounge was a treat for my partner and was definitely a winner! You are nade to feel so much more inclusive and spolit thst little bit more....

Am i recommending? Hell yeah! Do it!!! You'll not regret it.

Nextstop for us is the Orca tour at Bremer Bay

No whales BUT...
Nov 2019 • Solo
I booked late in the whale watching season so knew no whales was possible. I hadn't realised that this means I could go again or (I go back to Scotland in 2 days) pass my ticket on for my Aussie hosts to use because seeing whales is guaranteed. Brilliant deal.
The trip was still worth it as we saw several pods of dolphins, a baby hammerhead shark and a basking loggerhead shark.
The running commentary was outstanding- I learned a lot about what we did see and about the elusive whales.
I upgraded to Captain's lounge which was worth every cent and included the company of the Captain's very handsome dog in his First Mate's uniform (Albie can be removed but why would you?). Drinks and snacks too.
The photos on the website (Daily Whale) are better than mine but I still got some nice ones...
