Whale Watching

Join us for the whale watching encounter of a lifetime


Humpback, Southern Right, Minke and Blue Whales use our little corner of the world as a nursery, playground and rest haven during their migration up and down the coast each year. They are often as curious about us as we are about them, coming close to the boat to check us out. 


Your cruise with Naturaliste Charters includes :

  • A tour of the beautiful bays of the area
  • Commentary from our knowledgeable crew about local marine wildlife
  • An AUSSIE morning or afternoon tea including lamingtons, biscuits, plunger coffee, an assortment of black, green and herbal teas and other beverages.
  • We also have available comfortable children’s life jackets for the peace of mind of parents.


Stay with us between May to August, and depart from Augusta, just an hour's drive from the resort. Tours depart at 10 am and 2 pm daily from the Augusta Boat Harbour. September to November, tours depart 10 am and 1.30pm from The Iconic Busselton Jetty or Port Geographe Marina, Busselton. (Please confirm departure point prior to the tour).
