Whale-Watching Cruise and Hillarys Boat Harbour Day Trip from Perth
  • Whale-Watching Cruise and Hillarys Boat Harbour Day Trip from Perth

    Head north from Perth to Hillarys Boat Harbour for a whale-watching cruise off the Sunset Coast. Come face-to-face with magnificent humpback whales during their annual migration along the Western Australian coastline. You have the option to join the 2-hour whale-watching cruise at Hillarys Boat Harbour or to include round-trip transfers from Perth which will allow you plenty of free time to enjoy the cafes, bars, restaurants and shops of Hillarys Boat Harbour. There is also the option to include entry to the Aquarium of Western Australia.

    After pickup from your Perth hotel, board a small, air-conditioned coach and travel 15 miles (25 km) north of Perth to Hillarys Boat Harbour on the Sunset Coast, listening to commentary about the area from your driver. When you arrive at Hillarys, a popular marina and entertainment destination, you'll have plenty of free time to explore the many shops and cafes.

    At 10am make your way to the south side of Hillarys Boat Harbour and step aboard the boat for your two-hour whale-spotting tour. This tour runs seasonally from mid-September to the end of November to coincide with the whales’ annual migration along the Western Australia coast.

    Your cruise will return at about 12:30pm to Hillarys, where you have free time at Hillarys to have lunch (own expense), relax in the sunshine or visit the Aquarium of Western Australia (entry included if option selected). The aquarium’s highlights include seals, dolphins and rays from Western Australia’s turquoise waters. If you choose this option, you’ll depart for Perth at approximately 5:30pm.

      Hilary's boat harbour was pretty, the shops and restaurants were lovely to browse around. The aquarium was beautiful and well worth a visit. The boat trip to see the whales was nice and the crew were very helpful. We did sight a few whales briefly and saw them in the distance,it was a shame we didn't see them close up.I think if you just did the whale watching it would have been a disappointing day trip. The fact that there were other things to see and do at Hilary's made it a lovely day trip.

      It was great, manage to watch the whales but it wasn't so near, that was the only disappointment. However, it was still a great experience.

      We really enjoyed Hillarys Boat Harbour, it was a beautiful day, but the whale watching was a little disappointing. We were not allowed on deck until we reached the whale watching area. We were blocked into our seats when we were allowed and it took some time to get out, meanwhile all the prime watching spots were taken and of course they (watchers) didn't move the whole time. We didn't see a thing as we were not tall enough to see over their heads. We were disappointed for our interstate visitors. Luckily we enjoyed the rest of the day enjoying each others company.

      The whales are far away and we can only see a bit of the action here and there even in an one-hour duration. This is not really what we expected. The boat was so wobbly that many felt sick and vomitted.

      Although I've made many sea trips, this was so rough that I and several other passengers became so sick that we could not even rise from our seats to view the whales that were sighted. I have never before been seasick.

      Some whale sightings but very far away. Just luck of the draw on the day I suppose. The narration over the loud speaker, however, could have been much louder and clearer, couldn't hear most of it. Boat excellent.

      Being Sunday there was a large crowd with lots of kids, and being short I could not see very well through the ranks of people who ran over as soon as the sighting was announced. I waved my camera about to see if I could capture a shot of the whales way in the distance, I thought we would run into more pods but we didn't so I felt seasick for little or no reason... but I know it is unpredictable.

      "Complimentary pick up from Hotel" was from their choice of hotel, not where you were actually staying. Trying to organise the pick up turned into a nightmare and confirming the arrangements had to be done via e-mail as you could never get on to them via phone. We didn't see many whales at all (not their fault - I know) making it a disappointing tour. It was strongly suggested we use our Aquarium tickets prior to the Whale Watching tour, which is what we did, so that when we arrived back at Hillary's Harbour, we had nothing to do for the 3 hours they expected us to wait for another "complimentary drop back to the hotel". There was nothing in this description to explain that a water park was nearby and that we could spend some time there, which would have been good as my children would have brought their swimmers then. We ended up making our own way back to the City, rather than wasting more time waiting on this tour operator. Very poorly managed day tour and would not have wasted my money if I'd known what the day was going to be like. Wouldn't waste my money with this lot ever again.
