    Come aboard for an unforgettable experience in Western Australia. Depart from the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour and cruise in style on the Steep Point, a purpose-built luxury catamaran, for 2 hours of whale watching.  On your cruise, spot the magnificent humpback whales on their southern migration as they rest in the sheltered waters of Perth.
