Our Packages
WESTERN ROCK LOBSTER

Western Rock Lobsters are prolific in the waters surrounding Geraldton and the Abrolhos Islands and can be easily caught year round with the best months being from December to May.

In his previous life, skipper Steve completed 13 full seasons crayfishing for western rock lobster.

WESTERN ROCK LOBSTER
CATCH & COOK

Batavia Sea Safaris was at the forefront of developing a catch and cook tour which is specifically designed to take guests to experience pulling craypots close to shore. The tour then returns to shore to feast on the lobster, which can be done comfortably within a few hours.

It is a great way to get a taste of what the region has to offer if you are short on time and is amazing value for money.

Every year the Humpback whales migrate north through the midwest in search of warmer waters to calve.
