Perfect weather - light winds, lightly overcast day Then ,sailing towards Bald Head when suddenly - the most enormous breach...a Humpback burst completely out of the water about 10 metres from the front of the boat! WOW!! It felt like it might land on the boat! Later on, close sightings of 5 - 6 more Humpbacks. Thrilling sightings.
21 June 2018
Many Humpbacks near and around the boat - too many to count...over 30 in all! Magic!!
20 June 2018
Plenty of Humpbacks between Bald Head and Breaksea Island - about 15....Mum, baby and midwife - In the distance many whales breaching! A wonderful morning out on Albany water with spectacular scenery all around.
16 June 2018
Fabulous - 4 Humpbacks cut in front of us, slowed down and stayed just in front drifting along - us being 'showered with their breath as we went along. Then 4 more.
Coming home, dolphins came to play with the kids at the front of the boat.

The Humpbacks are surely travelling up from Antarctica and heading up to the warmer waters near Broome. Today we enjoyed interactions with 6 Humpbacks - 2 pods of 3 whales just past Bald Head. A great deal of breaching - much to our passengers' delight!
12 June 2018
Altogether we found 9 Humpbacks cavorting in Albany waters - 3 of them in the middle of the Sound and 6 more near Bald Head. We are so lucky to have these magnificent animals so close to Albany and reachable within 609 to 90 minutes!!
11 June 2018
Cruised directly to Bald Head where we encountered 6 friendly Humpbacks who showed much interest in our vessel. Later, mid Sound three more Humpbacks appeared.
9 June 2018
Travelled out around Bald Head and towards the Gap. Nine Humpbacks surrounded our vessel - much high energy action much to our passengers delight.
8 June 2018
Amazing displays by 5 Humpbacks - chasing each other in mid Sound and across to south of Mistaken Island. Whales stayed around us for nearly one and a half hours.
7 June 2018
Back out there with many eager guests - but only that lone Southern Right was found. Hopefully there are more Humpbacks on the way.
5 and 6 June 2018
Mother Nature threw all her rain and wind at us - so, sadly, no tours out into the Sound.
4 June 2018
Balmy weather - billowing sails - sunshine and abou9t 10 Humpbacks and 1 lone Southern Right whale - around us, under the boat, very close....keeping us company for over an hour. Magic!! Mother Nature at her best!
3 June 2018
1 adult Humpback and calf - many dolphins jumping. following our vessel and racing it. Thrilling footage. (Checkout the wonderful video posted on our Facebook page by David Govan). Many seals, fish and birds.
2 June 2018
A fabulous 'whale welcoming' trip. (It was the Welcome the Whales Festival at Albany's Historic Whaling Station Museum - and we were out in King George Sound near there looking out for the arrivals). Seven Humpbacks - two very large, 50 metres from us for a while, then, on our way home, 5 juveniles abandoned their play to charge at and under our boat, treating us all to a 'breathy-blow' shower.
29 May 2018
Four or five Humpbacks, two juveniles and a 'spotty' younger and smaller. They took great interest in us, coming alongside to explore - Wonderful! The ocean was calm after the storms and gave a chance to watch the seals and sea lions. The great start to the season continues.
Sunday 20 May 2018
Our first whale tour for this season after a very busy and exhausting three weeks of repair, refit, refurbishment etc.
Four Humpbacks in bright sunshine, out past Breaksea Island where our Certificate of Operation permits us to take you.
Over 20 black seals on Breaksea Island - 6 more at Bald Head. 4 Very rare Australian sea lions.
Large flocks of seagulls floating over a shimmering mass of bait fish - probably mulies.
Coming home with dolphins in glassy seas - the icing on the cake!
