Hilary's boat harbour was pretty, the shops and restaurants were lovely to browse around. The aquarium was beautiful and well worth a visit. The boat trip to see the whales was nice and the crew were very helpful. We did sight a few whales briefly and saw them in the distance,it was a shame we didn't see them close up.I think if you just did the whale watching it would have been a disappointing day trip. The fact that there were other things to see and do at Hilary's made it a lovely day trip.
We really enjoyed Hillarys Boat Harbour, it was a beautiful day, but the whale watching was a little disappointing. We were not allowed on deck until we reached the whale watching area. We were blocked into our seats when we were allowed and it took some time to get out, meanwhile all the prime watching spots were taken and of course they (watchers) didn't move the whole time. We didn't see a thing as we were not tall enough to see over their heads. We were disappointed for our interstate visitors. Luckily we enjoyed the rest of the day enjoying each others company.
Being Sunday there was a large crowd with lots of kids, and being short I could not see very well through the ranks of people who ran over as soon as the sighting was announced. I waved my camera about to see if I could capture a shot of the whales way in the distance, I thought we would run into more pods but we didn't so I felt seasick for little or no reason... but I know it is unpredictable.
Always love these tours on a first visit... lets you see whats around and helps you get your bearings, and if something looks interesting, you can hop off, and continue the tour later on another bus!
These tours are always great, but Perth was lovely - a beautiful day and lovely views. Highly recommend
Good introduction to Perth but our hotel had never heard of it and we had real trouble finding a bus stop. There are 2 companies - make sure you try to board the correct bus or tram !
Perth now has free public transport in the CBD area .
This makes this tour virtually redundant - however we did use it three times - however the main problem is that the circuit time is too long
TABLE TALK DINING
we had a great day out and the drivers were so much fun, and very informative
excellent value for money and very informative commentary all live from the driver so the personal touch is there from very helpful drivers. The only thing was it finished a little early i.e. 4.30 to 5.00pm
