Mills Charters have been operating whalewatchingperth.com cruises for many years and pride ourselves on offering an amazing personal experience on the water with these magnificent Indian Ocean mammals. If you are considering booking a whale watch cruise in Perth choose the whale watch specialists.

We can book you this amazing marine experience.

We have made Whale Watching near Perth part of our core business and strive to give everyone a trip to remember, an experience with the whales that is impressive and one they will remember and appreciate for years to come.

There are generally three (3) types of baleen whales seen off the coast of Western Australia.

The Humpback Whale (so named because it arches its back as it prepares to dive so creating the shape of a hump)

The Southern Right Whale (so named because in the old days of whaling, whalers considered this whale the right one to hunt as it swam very slowly and was therefore easy to catch and because its body was so rich in oil, it floated on the surface after it had been killed)

The Blue Whale which is coloured a steely grey on the surface but when seen from below is a beautiful turquoise blue. It is the largest of the Whales, reaching up to 100 feet in length and 130 tonnes in weight. The blue whale is the loudest animal on Earth! This endangered mammal is also the largest animal that ever lived on Earth; it is larger than any of the giant dinosaurs were.
