Go on the experience of a lifetime - a blue whale expedition

by Experience Perth | Feb 08, 2017

Blue Whale

You now have the opportunity to join our team as we research, photograph and collect data that will hopefully develop a clearer identity of the unique eco wilderness and biodiversity of the Perth Canyon.

This new expedition, with Whale Watch Western Australia, is an all day experience as we discover and research the the elusive Blue Whales and everything that this eco marine frontier has to reveal including many other mega fauna's and Antarctic migratory seabird's.

The Perth Canyon is a marine hotspot 50 nm off the coast of Perth, Western Australia
where the elusive Blue Whales go to feed each year on krill that gather in the Perth
Canyon which is larger than the Grand Canyon...just under water! Thought to be carved
from the Swan River mouth, the area is abundant with sea life that gathers for the feeding feast and is unrivalled as the epicentre for biodiversity in the West Australian summer.

The Blue Whales are endangered and current numbers are estimated at 12-20,000 world
wide which makes sightings extraordinarily important for research, coupled with the thrill
of sighting a Dinosaur of the Deep, this experience will be a generational talking point and memory.

Other species sighted in the Perth Canyon include

  • Blue Whales
  • Sperm Whales
  • Orca's (Killer Whales)
  • Pilot Whales
  • Beaked Whales
  • Dolphins (many different species)
  • Sea Lions
  • Migratory Antarctic Sea Birds
  • Sunfish
  • Sharks (many species including Great Whites)

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the largest mammal species ever to
grace our planet. Included in the expedition is a delicious morning tea, lunch and
afternoon tea with all drinks along with VIP service. Tours run for a limited time each year, book today.
