Whales and Dolphins
Dunsborough is perfectly located for the annual whale watching season, between September and December, when Southern Right, Humpback, Pygmy and Blue Whales are moving across Geographe Bay. Seeing them basking or at play in the Bay is an unforgettable experience when viewed from tour boats, or from vantage points such as Cape Naturaliste as they round the corner in the calm Geographe Bay. Bottlenose dolphins are also regular inhabitants of Geographe Bay. (Be sure to observe stand-off regulations if approaching whales or dolphins in private vessels).
Whale watching tours can be arranged at the Busselton and Dunsborough Visitors Centres and on www.geographebay.com.
