King George Sound Safari

Location: Toll Place, Albany WA 6330

We run WHALE and scenic boat safaris daily around King George Sound and Princess Royal Harbour in Albany, WA.

Join us on Albany's most affordable and personalised Whale watching tour. From around May to October, Humpback, Southern Right and occasionally rare Blue Whales can be seen in Albany’s waters where they frolic, mate and calve. Dolphins and seals can be seen all year round.

There’s no better way to experience Albany than by boat. Albany is home to pristine beaches, turquoise waters and the most beautiful bays in Australia.

Situated in Princess Royal Harbour, part of King George Sound, these waters are steeped in history. Imagine what it would have been like when the first explorers pulled into the harbour as early as 1627 or when the first ANZAC troops departed Albany for WWI in 1914. Cast yourself back in time to the days of the old whaling ships and see the Whaling Station in Frenchman Bay and the shipwreck of the Cheynes II, a 440 ton steam whale chaser.

Our boat is the “Young Salty Dog”, a twin hull catamaran and an ex Sea Rescue vessel that is safe and stable. Holding up to 12 passengers, Captain Mark will give you a personalised tour of the harbour and King George Sound.

We’ll navigate through the Ataturk Channel, past Point King Lighthouse and Point Possession. You’ll see the ANZAC Centre on Mount Clarence from the sea. Out in the King George Sound you’ll gaze in awe at the beautiful turquoise waters of Mistaken Island. We cruise past Brambles, Whalers Cove/Fisheries (a local nudist beach), Goode and Middleton Beach. We pass Camp Quaranup, built in 1875 as a quarantine station with a powder magazine built on Geake Island. Be reminded of whaling days gone by with a visit to an old shipwrecked Whale Chaser which broke its moorings and ran aground. It can be seen from the shores of Albany but it’s incredible to view up close and a photographers favourite.
