About Us

Whether you’re with friends, family or with kids, this is a once in a lifetime Broome experience. With over 20 years in the business, Broome Whale Watching has been voted as TripAdvisor’s Number 1 thing to do in Broome. Enjoy an unforgettable morning with snubfin dolphins or a sunset cruise with humpback whales. Let our friendly crew spoil you onboard our 42foot catamaran ‘Ballena’.

Broome, Western Australia is the only place in the world to see a snubfin dolphin. It is also a hotspot for sighting humpback whales with over 35,000 whales expected every year.

Sink into a bean bag or hang your legs over the edge of the boat as these whales and dolphins entertain you. 

Discover why Sir David Attenborough visited Roebuck Bay on our Snubfin Dolphin Cruises. Fall in love with the giants of the ocean, as the whales get up close to you.

Cruise with a small group of guests and enjoy personalised service that will leave you wanting more. You become part of our family and we become part of your holiday memory.

Dolphin sightings guaranteed year long. Whale sightings guaranteed from July to September, making this one of the best things to do in Broome. Sightings of marine life and their behaviour vary throughout the seasons.
