3 Hour Winter Whale Safari (May - Oct) around King George Sound
- Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
- Location: ALBANY, WA
- Product code: 3HWW
It's Whale Season from around May to October in Albany!
Join us on Albany's most affordable and personalised Whale watching tour.
From around May to October, Humpback, Southern Right and occasionally rare Blue Whales can be seen in Albany’s waters where they frolic, mate and calve. Dolphins and seals can be seen all year round. But seeing whales is our priority on this Safari.
Situated in Princess Royal Harbour, part of King George Sound, Albany's waters are steeped in history. Imagine what it would have been like when the first explorers pulled into the harbour as early as 1627 or when the first ANZAC troops departed Albany for WWI in 1914.
You’ll cruise through the Ataturk Channel and have a great view of Point King Lighthouse, Point Possession and the ANZAC Centre on Mount Clarence from the sea. Seeing whales is our priority on this safari, so we go where they go. This may affect visiting all the below places depending on their location, but we have a big three hours to see a lot of Albany from the sea.
We visit the beautiful turquoise waters of Mistaken Island, the natural beauty of Gull Rock and Seal Island. Cast yourself back in time to the days of the old whaling ships and see the Whaling Station in Frenchman Bay and the shipwreck of the Cheynes II, a 440 ton steam whale chaser. It can be seen from the shores of Albany but it’s incredible to view up close and a photographers favourite.
Pristine white beaches that can be seen include Brambles, Whaling Cove/Fisheries (a local nudist beach), Ledge Beach, Goode and Middleton Beach. We cruise past Camp Quaranup, established in 1875 as a quarantine station with a powder magazine built on Geake Island.
Our boat is the "Young Salty Dog", a twin hull catamaran and an ex Sea Rescue vessel that is safe and stable. Holding up to 12 passengers, Captain Mark will educate and entertain you with his commentary and local knowledge of the area.
