Overview

No holiday to the South West of WA would be complete without taking the time to view and photograph the abundant marine and ocean life that thrives along this magnificent coastline. Naturaliste Charters are the longest running whale watching company in the Southwest and have been operating professional whale watching tours out of Augusta and Dunsborough for 25 years, we have also completed four successful Killer Whale Expedition seasons out of Bremer bay. We have a state of the art luxury vessel Alison Maree, family friendly and designed to impress. Our tours provide visitors with the opportunity to view Humpback Whales, Southern Right Whales, and the rare Blue and Minke Whales on both their northern and southern migrations. As you watch these majestic creatures breach and frolic, we guarantee you’ll be mesmerised by their agility. Other marine life you might encounter during your whale watching tour include: New Zealand Fur Seals Bottlenose & Common Dolphins Sea Birds
