2023 WHALE WATCHING SEASON
The 2023 Augusta whale watching season runs from mid May through to late August. The 2022 season was one of the best on record with large pods entering Flinders Bay on there Northern migration to the Kimberley. We are excited for the 2023 season to start.
Tours depart daily from Augusta Boat Harbour – 10:00am and 1:30pm from late May until Mid August 2023.
We know where to find these beautiful creatures and have spotted whales on every trip for over 12 years and counting!
Suitable for the whole family, tours run for approximately 2hrs. Children (ages up to 17yrs of age!) are $55 and adults are $95 for our Augusta Whale Watching Tour.
Aboard Whale Song a full walk around purpose built whale watching vessel, we limit the numbers of passengers ensuring everyone has an unobstructed view of the whales, with plenty of space around on the stern or bow to get up close and personal or perch yourself up high in the wheelhouse next to Captain Paul and get a birds eye view of the action. There is luxurious cabin space inside to relax between the whales or a respite from the elements.
We typically will be spotting the migrating Humpback and Southern right whales as they leave the cold, food rich Antarctic waters and begin arriving in Augusta around May. The Southern rights have their calves close to shore while the Humpbacks are continuing their journey north to their breeding grounds in warmer water.
Augusta is perfectly placed to view these spectacular wild animals as they make their way past, often stopping off for a rest and play. The best way to see them up close is to book an Augusta Whale Watching Tour.
