WHALE WATCHING

AOC welcomes you aboard to enjoy an awe inspiring afternoon viewing the majestic Humpback whales as they migrate their way along the Kimberley coast.

Guaranteed whale sightings or your money back!

Enjoy an awe inspiring afternoon viewing the majestic Humpback whales as they migrate their way along the Kimberley coast. Humpback whales migrate from the cold southern waters of the Antarctic to the warm northern waters of the Kimberley region every year to calve. As they pass Broome a mixture of behaviours will be seen; energetic breaching and playful antics along with calm and nurturing lessons between mother & calf whales, learning to breathe and swim. It truly is a magnificent sight, Mother Nature at its best.

Relax in comfort on one of the daybeds while our Marine Biologist gives you an informed and knowledgeable account of local whale activity! Listen to whale song through our on board hydrophone whilst enjoying appetisers and refreshing drinks.
