    What to Expect
    Welcome aboard the Steep Point, the largest and most comfortable in its fleet. This luxurious 25-metre stable vessel provides an excellent platform for whale watching, with 5 viewing decks from which you can sight the magnificent Humpback, Southern Right and occasionally, the very rare Blue Whale along with Seals, Dolphins and migratory bird life from all over the world. With a passenger capacity of 72 people, the vessel also has an enclosed viewing saloon with fully licensed bar and cafe facilities. Enjoy this amazing experience in comfort and style.

    Whale-Watching cruises are seasonal and depart from two different location dependent on the time of year. Cruise departs from Augusta June to August and from Perth September to November. Cruises from Augusta travel through the waters of Flinders Bay, while Perth cruises traveling from Sardine Jetty taking in sights of the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbor.
