Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

King George Sound is on Albany's doorstep. It is one of the world's great natural harbors. It has played a prominent part in Australian history. King George Sound was the point of departure for the first ANZACs, leaving for the Middle East and Europe. It was the last of the Australian continent that many ANZACs were destined to see.

King George Sound is on the Southern coast of Western Australia. For many troops going off to war, King George Sound was the last they saw of Australia. .Albany had whalers residing here as long ago as 1801. The military outpost at Albany was founded in 1826. King George Sound is one of the finest natural harbours in Australia, comparable to Sydney Harbour. King George Sound was charted by Captain George Vancouver RN in 1791.

I went on this boat tour of the sound. The Captain was a very funny man and kept us all entertained and well informed the whole time. I recommend it.

The history and sights of King George Sound have an eeriness about them......so much is related to this exceptional part of the South West and in fact Australia's history - tragic shipwrecks; boys and men leaving Australian Shores for War; Trade and Commerce; Boating and Fishing; Disease and Quarantine; the list goes on. If you want to find out more information about this diverse part of the ocean and landscape, then take one of the King George Sound cruises (which leave from the harbour in Albany) to enjoy commentary, nostalgia, scenic views and time-out enjoying the ocean......I can highly recommend the two hour King George Safari Cruise. Mark is sure to fill you in on much of the surrounding beauty, history, islands, features, industry etc associated with KGS.

Visited on Sunday 24th November and it is still as amazing as I remember from my previous visits to Albany. Plenty of lookouts to see it from different angles.

Once again Captain Mark excelled himself by managing to find us a whale on a very wet and bleak Albany day. Mark is a wonderful host and immediately puts all of his guests at ease when they are on his boat.
If you are looking to spend 3 hours forgetting all your troubles and take in the beautiful Albany coastline then the King George Sound Safari is the trip you are looking for.
I can’t recommend Mark & his trip highly enough and as a local hospitality operator I recommend his trip to every guest.
Keep doing what you do Mark ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

A beautiful part of the country. The size of the 'sound / harbour' can be appreciated with the visit and one can then imagine the many troop ships as they gathered in the first and second convoys to leave for WWI.

Stunning, relaxing and friendly. The selection of beaches are fantastic. A drive to Denmark and Greens Pool is a must.

This Sound is just gorgeous. Sailing through the heads, with the lighthouse on Breaksea Island, through to the Marine, the landscape strikes you with its ruggedness and beauty. If you are lucky and also get sunshine it is really magnificent.
