Brilliant, saw a pod of 5 or 6 whales of which 2 jumped out of the water. Lots of people being seasick but I was ok ...
What an amazing trip! My family and I are overwhelmed with the experience! Thank you.
Best thing we did in Perth! We were very lucky that day, as a mother and calf came right alongside and swam around and underneath the boat. We were just blown away by it all. The best value day out in Perth by a mile! The girl who talked us through whale behaviour was really enthusiastic, without being annoying. If you only book one trip here, book this! You leave the jetty for a cruise down Swan River, then change at Freemantle for the whale watching. Plenty of time to explore Freemantle too. A whole day out - very good value for money - two very happy people!
Very enjoyable. We saw quite a few whales. It was a long day and a shorter stay in Fremantle would have been better
Great day. Everyone went the extra mile to make sure it was a successful outing!
The whale watching cruise was fantastic but wished they guided us around Fremantle as well.
Love it.....the whale watching part and not the sea sickness. Regret not able to view the whales at much closer range. Overall....good with a plus.
Very choppy on the boat did see some whales in the distance though. In the free time in Fremantle the prison is well worth a visit!
It would have been a very interesting trip as I looked forward to it earnestly. It took an hour from Perth and we were transferred to a smaller boat at Fremantle to head another hour out to the ocean. It was fun as everyone on board was in high spirits and excited about the whale sighting. Sad to say, the humbacks did not surface on that day and we were compensated with a day trip to Rottnest Island on another day. The beaches of Rottnest Island are so beautiful. Visiting this island was not in my schedule but thanks to Rottnest Express, We were able to see the beauty of this island with the quokkas freely roaming the island centre un-perturbed!
The whales are simply magnificent and we had numerous chances to view them. Downside was the number of people on the boat so you felt you needed to fight your way through so see the whales at times.
For his reason I would look for a smaller tour operator if we were to visit the whales again.
The trip was nice, but we did not see so many whales. The whales we saw there were to far to see good. And we were not so lucky with the weather.
The highlight of this tour was the whale-watching but we could can hardly see the whales. Intermitently one would appear far far away but there were too many people on board and, as shorter women, we were always blocked by taller individuals. So imagine our disappointment when on top of being burnt by the scorching sun in the deck, we saw almost nothing!
Then when we arrived at Fremantle we were told to be back at the harbour by a certain time but the ferry arrived at least 30 minutes late.
It was a lousy trip and a waste of time.
