“Book a Private Tour for a group of 1 – 13 passengers for only $700 AUD”
Whale watching tours operate from end-August to end-November. Daily Tours. As whales are wild animals, sightings are not guaranteed. However, the experienced and attentive crew ensure that you have the best possible chance at finding the whales.
Enjoy an informative, interesting and exciting narrative given by the Whale Watching crew as you view these magnificent mammals making their yearly migration through our coastal waters! Not only can you see these magnificent creatures, you can listen to them communicate with each other (conditions permitting) with the UNDER WATER MICROPHONE – Mills Charters are the only operator in Perth with this high tech device, so …you CAN HEAR THEM TOO!
