Our Dunsborough Whale Watching Tours provide you with unique experiences to see the humpback whales. This is where you not only come face to face with one of these giants of the deep. You get to experience it in the water with them!
BlueSun Travel offers unique Dunsborough Whale Watching Tours with the best and most experienced whale watching boat tour operators.
Experience the southern migration of the great whales from the picturesque seaside town of Dunsborough. This incredible journey is the longest migration of any mammal on earth. From the beginning of September, humpback whales return to the feeding grounds of Antarctica. In October, we begin to see blue whales in the bay as they too head south. The southern migration is special. In the protective care of their mothers, calves leave their birthplace in the tropical north and make the epic trek south to Antarctic waters for the first time, an incredible journey for a baby just months old. The calm, protected waters of Geographe Bay offer a welcome respite to the weary wanderers, an opportunity to rest before crossing an entire ocean for the first time.
Cruise on the calm blue bay, waters so clear you can see the emerald seagrass meadows below, the foundation of an ecosystem more productive than a coral reef, and a nursery for some of our most highly prized fish species.
The relaxed cetacean visitors are unconcerned by our careful and respectful approach. Be enthralled as curiosity outweighs caution and a calf approaches our vessel, or nurses in the shallows as you watch. Feel an incredible sense of awe as you appreciate the sheer size of the largest animals on earth, often swimming so close you will hear them breathe.
As we drift peacefully past the stunning shores, see fur seals resting between fishing expeditions on the rocks. Look out for sea eagles and ospreys soaring overhead, while petrels and shearwaters skim the surface and diving gannets drop from the sky to capture fish in the depths. Pods of common and bottlenose dolphins often join our tours, surfing alongside, or treating us to stunning aerial acrobatic displays.
