Witness the annual migration of whales in Amazing Albany this whale-watching season!
Western Australia has one of the longest whale-watching seasons in the world! The annual migration of humpback, southern right whales and the rare blue whale brings these marine creatures to Albany waters each June, kicking off whale watching season in Amazing Albany.
From June to October, observe these gentle giants from Albany’s shores or hop on a whale-watching cruise and get up close. As the whales frolic in our sheltered bays to calve and mate, sometimes binoculars aren’t necessary – they can be seen from prime viewing spots around Albany’s coastline! Dolphins and seals are also regularly spotted in Albany’s sheltered waters.
Some of the best spots to catch sight of whales from shore include the Ellen Cove Boardwalk, Discovery Bay, Marine Drive lookouts, Cheynes Beach, Camp Quaranup, Gull Rock, Bald Head, and on Middleton Beach.
Be sure to bring your binoculars and wear sturdy shoes! Stay off the rocks, as the coastline is dangerous with strong waves and high tides.
