The Margaret River region is the ideal location from which to commence your whale watching adventure. The whale watching season commences around Late May when the whales first appear in Flinders Bay, Augusta, a scenic 40 minutes drive south of Margaret River as they head north from the Southern Ocean to their northern breeding grounds. The Margaret River region has many great coastal spots from which to witness the annual migrations and is one of the few locations where Southern Right and Humpback whales actually interact.

From July through August the migration heads up coast from Flinders Bay and around Cape Leeuwin which is a popular land based location to view the migration.

Legend Charters operate out of Augusta from June to August with daily whale watching tours from the Augusta Boat Harbour. All tours are 2 to 3 hours in duration, although likely to be closer to 2 hours as the whales are very close in Augusta.

Later in the season, as the whale continue their migration up the coast, we relocate our Margaret River whale watching tours to the magnificent Geographe Bay, a picturesque 40 minute drive North of Margaret River. These whale watching cruises operate from September through to November daily from the Busselton Jetty.
