There’s no better way to experience summer in Albany than by boat. Home to pristine beaches, turquoise waters and the most beautiful bays in Australia.

Albany’s waters are steeped in history. Imagine what it would have been like when the first explorers arrived as early as 1627 or when the first ANZAC troops departed Albany for World War I in 1914. Cast yourself back in time to the days of the old whaling ships and see the Whaling Station in Frenchman Bay.

They’ll navigate through Ataturk Channel, past Point King Lighthouse and Point Possession. View the ANZAC Centre on Mount Clarence from the sea. Out in King George Sound you’ll gaze in awe at the beautiful turquoise waters of Mistaken Island. The amazing South Coast is renowned for its pristine white beaches and they cruise past Whalers Cove/Fisheries, Goode and Middleton Beach.

They also pass Camp Quaranup, built in 1875 as a quarantine station with a powder magazine built on Geake Island. Be reminded of whaling days gone by with a visit to an old shipwrecked Whale Chaser, the Cheynes II which broke its moorings and ran aground. It’s incredible to view up close and a photographer’s favourite.
