It’s Whale Watching Season in Western Australia!

The height of whale watching season has just begun in Western Australia. The Indian Ocean and Southern Ocean coastlines of Western Australia are home to one of of the longest whale watching seasons in the world. These are also some of the most isolated coastlines, which gives you an amazing opportunity to see these magnificent creatures of the deep up close and personal. The height of whale watching season in Western Australia is from May through September. However, something unique to Western Australia is that if you know where to look (and most of the expert whale watching charter companies do), then you can seek out and find different whales on year long; more on that later.
