A once in a lifetime experience
Mar. 2021
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our Orca experience and found the staff onboard Whale Watch in Bremer Bay to be friendly, informative and genuine. The trip out is quite long and their advice was to sit on the beanbags at the back of the boat to minimise sea sickness. In emails prior to the trip they did recommend taking motion sick tablets if you are not used to being on a boat in open sea's. Following their guidelines we did not experience motion sickness, enjoyed watching the Orca's frolicking in the ocean and coming up close to the boat. As their staff take photo's you can just sit back and enjoy the experience and download their photo's. Food was basic and plentiful ... ideal for keeping the stomach settled!

Amazing Day with professional team
We went on the Whale Watcher tour today. The weather was rough but the experience amazing. It is a family owned business with Dad as skipper, mum as host and one daughter as commentator with deep knowledge of Orcas and their world. The vessel is superb with great food and snacks. A world class experience!

Orca Experience
Feb. 2020
We went out with Whale Watch Western Australia on a long holiday weekend.
We were lucky to have one clear, calm and very beautiful day between two storms.
We were greeted by the team and
Everything was great: professional, dedicated and attentive crew who looked after us, food and tea/coffee all day (though vegan options were limited to basically fruits only - no problem, I wasn't hungry and my husband made himself a vegetable sandwich), wine and beer to celebrate our experience with the Orcas.
The boat was fantastic and very comfortable even though we had a full house that day anyone could comfortably accommodate themselves. The boat has plenty of shade for a sunny and hot too, by the way.
Unfortunately it took us almost a whole day to find orcas (no dolphins, no birds except for one albatross and a few sea gulls). Thanks to the crew who went far and beyond to keep us entertained and Gemma was very knowledgeable and kept us informed throughout the search. Finally we were able to allocate a pod of Orcas with Baby Grace and spent the whole 3 hours with them. The weather was quite and beautiful, and orcas were very calm and relaxed - no kills, no jumps, no play, no close approach, which was a bit disappointing, but, hey, they are wild animals, they do what they want and I guess everyone was finally happy to see them after long hours of search. The sunset at the ocean was fantastic and we really enjoyed our smooth ride back home.
I especially loved how the crew respected these beautiful animals whilst out with them not driving all over or hunting or harassing them any other way (the other operator did!!).
Overall it was a great day and I was happy to choose these guys! Highly recommended tour operator! They are the best!
P.S. Take sea sickness pills even if you don't think you won't need it - you will! It was a very smooth ride but half of our boat were sea sick. It's a whole day at the ocean so you need to be prepared not to spoil your special day and miss all the action. And book with these guys, you won't be disappointed! They are great!

We look forward to welcoming you onboard again in the near future and be sure to speak with our crew as we have further vegan options available which are stored privately for our guests who have dietary requirements. Stay safe and safest of travels ahead

Orcasome day!!
What a great day out and thank you so very much Whale Watch for the trip, we went last year but only saw Pilot Whales (which was still good) so I had no expectations this year on seeing Orcas. It was fantastic, we came across Orcas almost immediately on arrival to the canyon,and then it was 4 hours of solid Orcas, wow they glide through the water so fast(was hard to get pics) . Truly amazing to watch them!

Honestly though I'm not sure what I enjoyed more seeing the Orcas or the choppy ride out or the super choppy ride back in on the boat, I got absolutely drenched and had an absolute ball sitting upstairs bouncing over the waves

Thankyou very much for a great day out on my 3rd whale adventure with Whale Watch

Absolutely amazing day! Spent today watching a pod of 100 Orcas hunting, eating salmon (very posh) playing and entertaining us. These gentle giants are so beautiful.
The boat is beautiful spotlessly clean, comfortable and perfect. Food and drinks provided all day. The staff are amazing knowledgeable, attentive, patient, friendly. They looked after the couple of people who were abit "green around the gills". 100% recommendation! Thank you so much.

Best day ever. The only operator to choose for whale watching. Very comfortable and luxurious boat, plenty of room for all passengers. The team of WhaleWatch WA are wonderful providing the most amazing experience I've had whale watching. So much excitement when we sighted a pod of Orcas very early in the day and were able to see them and other pods for the entire time out. These amazing wild animals provided a great experience for us all. The team onboard are very knowledgeable about all the habits and preferences of the orca. They show great respect to these wild animals in their own habitat and it was a pleasure and an honour to be part of this experience. The first part of the journey is very bumpy and at times rough. Take sea sickness tabs even if you don't think you need them. They have lots of food on board available all day and plenty to suit all tastes.

Magic trip to see Orcas
Mar. 2020 • Solo
What a day! - staff were very knowledgeable and the commentary was excellent. I learned so much about the Orcas behaviour . The Whale Watch boat was so comfortable and provided a great platform to view the Orcas in their natural habitat . All the food and drinks were top quality and no request was too much trouble for the staff. This is a great family business and I’d definitely recommend the experience with Whale Watch Western Australia - they know what they are doing .

Bucketlist check!
Feb. 2020 • Solo
Seeing orca in the wild has been on the top if my bucketlist for years! You can imagine my excitement when I found out I could combine my Australia trip with seeing these amazing creatures.

I included a transfer from Perth, since I didn’t want to go all the way to Bremer Bay by myself. Driver Evan, who was sent to collect me in Perth, was amazing! We chatted most of the drive since it was just us two.

Accommodation provided in the Bremer Bay Resort was lovely.

Then there’s the big day. I had taken pills against motion sickness, but unfortunately to no avail. The trip itself was a-ma-zing. We had orcas around the boat pretty much the whole time, but since I spent most of the 7 hour trip either sleeping or throwing up I didn’t see much of them. The team of Whale Watch Western Australia did everything in their power to make each and every one of their guests as comfortable as possible, even though many of us were sick.

The waves are pretty rough, so if you are prone to motion sickness; really think if you want to put yourself through 7 hours of throwing up. The orcas are worth it though, and you will be well looked after!

Preparation is always good if you are prone to motion sickness and our team are focused on ensuring everyone has the best time possible and still meet the Orca even if you are feeling unwell, and we are so pleased you were able to achieve a tick off your bucket list :)
