Whale Watching Charters
A Broome whale watching cruise is one of the most spectacular in the world, so come and experience these amazing creatures for yourself. Guaranteed whale watching on our cruise or your money back!
Enjoy an awe inspiring afternoon watching 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 the whales pass Broome, you can watch a mixture of behaviours from the creatures; 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 Broome whale activity! Listen to whale song through our on board hydrophone whilst enjoying tasty appetisers and refreshing drinks. If you’re interested in Broome whale watching tours, come aboard with us.
