Reviews from Our Amazing Guests

Jet Adventures Whale Watching Safari Dunsborough
This was the most awesome day. Pete was amazing sharing local knowledge we saw humpback whales with calves seals and dolphins. The boat ride was exhilarating.
Tuesday whale watching
Wow! What a day! This whale watching tour takes you so up close to the whales it was amazing! At one stage I felt like I was part of a pod we were drifting with. Having the boat so open makes all the difference. Thanks Jet Adventures.
Whale Watching Safari
Absolutely amazing day hanging out with the whales. We got so close, we could almost touch them. Great tour guide, awesome boat. Was heaps of fun on the speedboat too, a thrill to go so fast chasing the whales!
Whale watching in Geographe Bay
Superb trip with Peter at the helm providing excellent information and seeing several whales. Very comfortable boat. Highlight was seeing a humpback whale feeding. Highly recommend this trip!
Definitely a must go while in Dunsborough. Had the last whale watching tour of the season, still managed to see about 5 whales and two groups of dolphins, also seals. All was great, highly recommend.
