2 Hour Summer Sea Safari (Nov - Apr) around King George Sound

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

Smell the sea in the air and get the wind in your hair as we cruise around Princess Royal Harbour and King George Sound.

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. The amazing South Coast is renowned for its pristine white beaches and we cruise past Brambles, Whalers Cove/Fisheries (a local nudist beach), Goode and Middleton Beach in Princess Royal Harbour. We also see 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, the Cheynes II 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.
Read what our customers said in our Trip Advisor Reviews BYO Food and Drinks (including Alcohol) BBQ Available on Request (No Extra Charge) Toilet on board Don't forget to bring your camera! The boat has a roof so you won’t get sunburnt, but we have plenty of sunscreen on board to keep you protected.
100% Satisfaction Guarantee

If the safari was not to your satisfaction or while the whales are in town you did not see a whale, you are invited back as our guest free of charge for another safari.
