Koombana Bay: Dolphin Eco Cruise

1. Koombana Bay: Dolphin Eco Cruise

Take an exciting Dolphin Eco Cruise for 90 minutes at the Discovery Centre. The vessel provides an excellent viewing platform designed to get you as close as possible to the dolphins, without getting your feet wet. The team will introduce you to the local Bottlenose Dolphins as they interact in their natural environment. Many of the dolphins seen on the cruise call Koombana Bay their home. They can be seen frolicking, playing, sleeping, and feeding during the cruise. The informative commentary from the skipper will keep you updated throughout.

Bunbury: Swim with Dolphins Tour

On this tour, you are given the opportunity to swim with the wild Bottlenose Dolphins in their own environment. Accompanied by an experienced guide and trained volunteers you will venture into the open waters of Koombana Bay. Depending on dolphin sightings you will be guided into the water where the dolphins may elect to initiate interaction with the swimmers. As they are wild dolphins, interaction cannot be guaranteed.

Augusta: Whale Watching Tour

4. Augusta: Whale Watching Tour

Step on board and cruise Flinders Bay in style on board the Alison Maree, the sturdiest charter vessel in the South West. Everyone is treated as a VIP on board the vessel with complimentary access available to the Skippers lounge. Listen to old folk stories from Skipper Dundee or Jamie or head down the front of the vessel and learn the history and movements of the whales from the experienced on board Marine Biologist, ask them as many questions as you like. Enjoy a morning or afternoon tea consisting of a hot drink or water and help yourself to some biscuits. With a 99% success sighting rating, you are almost 100% guaranteed to see whales on your tour, if not you can join a tour again for free. The tours are family friendly and suitable for all ages. On average it takes about 7 minutes from departing the Marina until whales are sighted, with over 35000 Humpbacks migrating, binoculars aren't required, there's plenty to see. The cruise goes for approximately 2 hours in the sheltered waters of Flinders Bay, Augusta which is a resting place for the whales whilst on their northern migration. Quite often sighted here is the Southern Right whale - always amazing to see as they were once almost extinct from being hunted back in the whaling days, and due to their gestation period their populations haven't quite recovered as well as the Humpbacks.

From Albany: Mount Barker Wine Tasting Day Tour

5. From Albany: Mount Barker Wine Tasting Day Tour

Meander through backroads to taste outstanding wines from wineries of the Mt Barker sub-region of the Great Southern appellation; known for its Rieslings. This region has a characteristically cool climate with slow ripening times which allows for the development of rich flavors and quality grape juice. Wine tasting begins at Gilbert Wines, home to the ‘lads’ and where a morning coffee might be preferred. At Plantagenet wines, you are taken to the tasting bench to choose your wine and make your purchase to accompany a scrumptious shared platter lunch of local produce. Then it's on to Galafrey Wines, another family-owned winery and home to prominent female wine-maker Kim Tyrer. From there head to West Cape Howe where you can sample wine from their extensive range, olive oil, or their own brand of coffee. Our Busy Blue Bus Tour guide will take care of the skipper duties, while you relax and enjoy the scenery and the sensational flavors of the region.

My husband and I had the best day with our guide Sue and fellow travellers. Sue took us to four rustic, family owned wineries and we were not disappointed by any of them! Gilbert’s winery was the start of our tour after which the rest had a tough act to follow! Loved the country style venue, the beautiful views across the hill to the mountains. If you love dogs there are two pat loving kelpies. What I also enjoyed was being able to sit at a long table and be served our wines. The portions were generous and the story behind the wines and winery was very interesting. I love hearing stories of a family who put in the hard work and now have an amazing venue and some of the best wines I have tasted! Lunch at Plantagenet winery was simply delicious along with their wines. I am gluten intolerant so appreciated the effort that was made to accomodate my needs. It was lovely to meet the owner of Galfrey winery and hear here her success story. West Cape Howel’s staff was soooo accomodating!!

Fantastic! The guide is knowledgeable and friendly, the volunteers are amazing and my 8 year old grandson loved it. We saw dolphins and then spent hours in the Discovery centre...
