Whale Watching Tours
Join us for the whale watching encounter of a lifetime
Humpback, Southern Right, Minke and Blue Whales use our little corner of the world as a nursery, playground and rest haven during their migration up and down the coast each year. They are often as curious about us as we are about them, coming close to the boat to check us out. Both Dolphins and Seals are also regularly sighted during our tours.
We keep group sizes small on our whale watching tours, so everyone gets a good view and have a huge covered viewing platform for your comfort. Our knowledgeable marine commentary will keep you informed and our friendly staff are here to assist you.
We are proud of our growing reputation for providing quality service with generous hospitality.
Families and children are especially welcome on our whale watching tour and (weather permitting) children will be offered the opportunity to take a turn at the wheel on the flybridge on the way in!! Our crew offer a full tour of the boat and equipment for all interested passengers.
Join us for the whale watching eco-cruise of a lifetime!
Your cruise includes:
- A tour of the beautiful bays of the area
- Commentary from our knowledgeable crew about local marine wildlife
- A generous morning or afternoon tea including cakes, biscuits, plunger coffee, an assortment of black, green and herbal teas and other beverages.
- We also have available comfortable children’s life jackets for the peace of mind of parents.

Tours depart 10.30am and 1.30pm daily from the Augusta Boat Harbour, Leeuwin Road, Augusta, returning 2 to 3 hours later.
September to November, Busselton
Departs 9.30am and 1.00pm from The Iconic Busselton Jetty or Port Geographe Marina, Busselton. (Please confirm departure point prior to tour). This tour provides the comfort of stepping onboard from a Jetty, rather than a dinghy transfer out to the boat from the beach.

Full refunds will only be given if weather is unfavourable on the day and Legend Charters have to cancel the tour for safety reasons. No refunds are given if you have been out on a tour.
