Naturaliste Charters thrilling Augusta Whale Watching Experiences run from mid May through to the end of August, departing daily from the Augusta Boat Harbour. Join us on an Augusta Whale watching experience and live your whale watching dream. Naturaliste Charters are the Pioneers of Whale Watching in the Southwest, celebrating over 26 years in the industry. You will be looked after by the most experienced whale watching company in the region, with a crew whose knowledge and passion for Western Australia’s marine wildlife is unequalled in the industry.


The beautiful Alison Maree is a modern, spacious and luxurious 20m catamaran, providing the ultimate in stability, comfort and safety, making her a popular choice for all ages and those with less mobility.  The perfect vessel for Augusta Whale Watching, spot wildlife on the bow or from the huge upper and lower rear decks, or try all three! Or, escape the elements, join the skipper in the comfort of the air-conditioned wheelhouse with an uninterrupted 360 degree panorama. Downstairs, relax in the spacious and comfortable air-conditioned main saloon where seat-to-ceiling windows ensure excellent wildlife viewing in comfort. The Alison Maree is perfect for families the vessel offers:

Infant life jackets for peace of mind

Hand rails suitable for children around the whole vessel

Spacious enough to bring your stroller on board

Exclusive multimedia presentations on board ensure you see, hear and learn about the whales and other marine wildlife, enhancing your own encounters.  We can carry 90 passengers and crew, but keep under our maximum limit on any Whale Watching Tour ensuring plenty of room for all.

From the scenic seaside town of Augusta, meet the oceans largest mammals on an extraordinary journey.  From the feeding grounds of the Antarctic to the warm waters of northern Australia and beyond, migrating humpback whales fill Flinders Bay as they make their epic trek, the longest migration of any mammal on earth.

Competitive, curious and acrobatic, humpback whales are one of the most spectacular whales to watch. A face to face encounter with an animal 200 times your size is an unforgettable experience. Hear thunderous slaps from flippers weighing several tons. Watch in awe as a whale weighing 40 tons rockets from the ocean in a spectacular breach, trailing sparkling streams of seawater before crashing back into the sea in a storm of whitewater.

Delight in the sight of southern right whales and their newborn calves, one-ton babies born in the bay in July and August. Each addition inspires hope for the future of the most endangered of the great whale species as they play and grow in preparation for their first migration south.

Rare minke whales, and the largest animal to ever have lived, the blue whale, are sometimes seen on our tours. Keep a close lookout for sea eagles and osprey soaring above the cliffs, pods of dolphins surfing the bow wave, the local seal colony, albatross wheeling on the wind and shearwaters skimming the swells.

We hope you enjoy your Augusta Whale Watching experience with Naturaliste Charters.
