What You Can Expect

Whale-Watching Cruise and Fremantle Day Trip from Perth

Whale Watching, Perth

Your full-day excursion begins with a pleasant cruise down the Swan River from Perth to Fremantle. Then you’ll board your custom-built whale-watching boat for your two-hour whale-watching cruise. Be entranced by these gentle giants of the sea as they make their way along the Humpback Highway, a migration path that circles the globe.

With expert commentary provided by the informative guides, everything you’ve ever wanted to know about whales can be answered. See the whales from the onboard viewing decks, which offer great photo opportunities.

There is no better place to view the migration than from the coast of Perth, where more than 35,000 whales and their calves make their way south to the Antarctic.

After the whale-watching cruise, you have time to enjoy the afternoon in the historic port town of Fremantle, home to heritage buildings, local artisans and designers, and a café culture sure to impress.
