Why Whale Watching in Perth? 

Humpback Whale

Perth’s coastline is a prime location for whale watching due to the annual migration of humpback whales. Whale watching specific to Perth focuses on two primary Whale species with different peak times. From March to May, we will be able to witness the epic Northern humpback whale. These magnificent creatures pass by on their way to warmer waters for their young, leaving the feeding grounds of the Antarctic. It is a unique opportunity to witness their acrobatic displays and tail flukes and possibly even witness adorable calves swimming alongside their mothers.

Blue Whale

During the summer and early Autumn, blue whales gather off the southern Australian coast, eagerly indulging in vast krill swarms. As autumn sets in, they make their way to the nutrient-rich waters of Perth Canyon, where they continue their feeding frenzy for several weeks, fueling up for the arduous journey ahead. From there, they embark on a northward migration into international waters during the winter months, navigating the expansive Banda Sea.

In the warmth of tropical waters, blue whales give birth to their calves and nurture them with tender care. Eventually, they return to the Bonney Upwelling, where the cycle of life begins anew, perpetuating the timeless rhythm of nature’s wonders.
