The opportunity of a lifetime to have a rare encounter with the largest creature to have ever lived on our planet, the Blue Whale!
The Perth Canyon is a marine hotspot located 30 nautical miles off the coast of Perth, Western Australia where the elusive Blue Whales congregate each year to feed on krill during the months of March to May. Join Whale Watch Western Australia, the only company who offers the opportunity to encounter Blue Whales in Australia.
This new expedition is an all day experience as we discover and research the elusive Blue Whales and everything that this eco marine frontier has to reveal. Departing on our luxury vessel from the Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbour we make our way past Rottnest Island and towards the Perth Canyon while enjoying morning tea and watching for local dolphins and birdlife. Our arrival at the canyon will begin our search for the Blue Whales while our fully guided live and educational commentary will educate you all about the largest creature to have ever lived on our planet and the history of the Perth Canyon and its inhabitants.
