Albany, Western Australia, Australia
Princess Royal Harbour & King George Sound Cruise
Information not currently available.
Enjoy a scenic boat cruise on the King George Sound. It is one of Western Australia's most spectacular harbors and protects the historical city of Albany from the open sea.
The sound is bordered by the mainland to the north; by the Vancouver Peninsula on the west; and by Bald Head and the Flinders Peninsula to the south. Its waters are partially protected by Breaksea Island and Michaelmas Island.
See the two harbors located within the sound -- Princess Royal Harbour and Oyster Harbour. Each benefits from excellent protection from winds and heavy seas. If tide conditions permit, you will cruise close to shoreline to view the wilderness areas and the natural composition of this beautiful coastline.
Keep an eye out for dolphins, seals and the many seabirds that inhabit the area.
Watch a DVD about Albany, walk around the decks or just sit back and relax on the outside seating in front of the saloon or near the helm. The slow pace of the cruise offers peace and serenity.
Re-board your motorcoach for a short city sightseeing drive past some of the landmarks of Albany before your return to the pier.
Wear non-skid shoes. There is no swimming offered. Wildlife sightings are likely but are not guaranteed. Tour does not operate on holidays.
