What You Can Expect
At 11:45am make your way to the south side of Hillarys Boat Harbour and step aboard the boat for your two-hour whale-spotting tour. This tour runs seasonally from mid-September to the end of November to coincide with the whales’ annual migration along the Western Australia coast.
Your cruise will return at about 2:15pm to Hillarys, where you have free time at Hillarys to have lunch (own expense), relax in the sunshine or visit the Aquarium of Western Australia (entry included if option selected). The aquarium’s highlights include seals, dolphins and rays from Western Australia’s turquoise waters. If you choose this option, you’ll depart for Perth at approximately 5:30pm.
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.
