Day 6 of Western Australia Trip, Whale Watching, Augusta
On the sixth day of our Western Australia Trip, we hoped on a boat to go hunt for whales! We booked online in advance with Naturaliste Charter after reading raving reviews on Tripadvisor!
We are lucky that we went on a weekday morning and there were only 1 other couple on the trip with us! We had the crew’s full attention and had plenty of space to move around the boat to get the best view on board!
It was a 2 hours trip and for the first half of the journey, there weren’t much action going on. Patience is key. Usually we have to try spotting for their spouts from a far and move towards them.
Once we spot them this near, we stop all engine and be prepared for the whale to mob us. This is when the boat gets really shaky and when you feel like puking your guts out. Thankfully we took motion sickness pills before that. Haha.
Look how close they are from us!
Saw lots of humpback whales.
We got a good spot right next to the captain!
While waiting for the whales, we got to know a little bit from about them.
We also popped by to visit the seals!
Another check on my never ending bucket list!
