Your day trip starts in central Perth, where you’ll catch your cruise for a lovely trip down the Swan River to Fremantle, located where the river meets the Indian Ocean. Along the way, admire the leafy Perth suburbs and yacht clubs that line the river.

When you reach Freo, as it’s known to locals, hop aboard the custom-built whale-watching boat for your 2-hour cruise along the Humpback Highway, a stretch of the Indian Ocean where more than 35,000 whales and their calves make their migration each year to the Antarctic. Listen to expert narration provided by an onboard guide while you keep watch for the whales from the boat’s viewing decks, and feel free to ask any questions you have.

Your cruise ends with return to Fremantle, where you have most of the afternoon to explore independently. Check out the historical buildings, shops and galleries, waterfront, a brewery and many sidewalk cafes that make up this lively town, a favorite local destination. Then return to Perth the way you came, with the boat ride back up the Swan River.
