I wanted to go whale watching for a while and finally did it. And it was absolutely worth it! The whales came so close and swam underneath the boat! It was a mother Humpback with her baby. Just an amazing experience! We also saw dolphins!

Whale watching is one of the best things we have ever done. We always try to find tour operators for wildlife watching who respect animals and do not chase them. The guys from Naturaliste Charters are highly knowledgable, energizing, and total fun to be with. A wonderful experience, and we were so privileged to see two mothers with their calves,... More

When the quote of the trip is " Well folks...we are surrounded by blue whales...." Need I say anymore other than make sure you get on board with Dundee and Kim and get out amongst it!

Went out on a rather overcast blowy day. Super friendly staff so long as you don't have bananas with you! We were very privileged to see 9 blue whales. The most majestic of huge beasts. A true privilege to be able to see them. Also saw a couple of humpbacks. Informative cheerful staff. Would highly recommend this company.

We spent a bit of time deciding on which whale watching tour to take and these guys were brilliant. I would definitely recommend them. Plenty of knowledge imparted and they know how to tread carefully around this natural wonder. 5 stars.

We spent a few hours out with these guys today whale watching in Geographe Bay. Skipper Mal certainly knew his stuff and is very passionate about whales. There were plenty of Southern Right Whales in the bay and near Meelup Beach we got very close to several small pods. Just as we were about to head back in a pod... More
