Winter is here and that means whale watching season has started.
An estimated 35,000 whales have started their annual migration from the Antarctic to our warmer waters, with their first port of call, the protected waters of Flinders Bay, Augusta.
Augusta is one of the few places where you’ll see the southern right and humpback whales interact. Humpbacks, renowned for their agility, gather in groups of males and engage in breaching, spy-hopping, lob-tailing and tail-slapping in an awesome attempt to attract a mate. Southern right whales will often calve in the bay and sometimes can be seen doing so in the shallows.
The Roozen Residence recommends making the most of this once in a lifetime opportunity with Whale Watch Western Australia who operate from May – September, twice daily, departing from August Boat Harbour, ½ hour drive from the beach house.
