Australia’s Most Experienced Whale Watching Tour Operator - Learn The Language Of The Whales™


September - December

Hillarys Whale Watching is one of the best locations in Western Australia to see the largest Humpback Whale migration on the planet aboard Australia's #1 Whale Watch Experience.

Hillary’s is a stunning beachside suburb of Western Australia and one of the best places to go whale watching. During the months of September to December Hillary’s is host to the largest migration of Humpback Whales in the world as over forty five thousand whales migrate south towards Antarctica. The sheltered waters found off the coastline from Hillary’s provides the ideal resting grounds as Humpback Whales congregate to socialise and recoup. Spending their time relaxing, resting and nurturing their newborn calves in these pristine waters provides an ideal Whale Watch opportunity during the spring with the Humpback Whales of Western Australia.

Whale Watch Western Australia is the only dedicated whale watch operator departing daily from Hillarys and provides the only 100% lifetime sighting guarantee. Hillarys departures are also onboard our brand new, state of the art vessel purposely designed to ensure a completely immersive and educational whale watch experience.

Whale Watch 1 is specifically designed and dedicated to whale watch experiences, providing a less intrusive vessel to allow for respectful observation of the wildlife we interact with daily.
