JOIN THE OCEAN’S LARGEST MAMMALS ON AN EPIC JOURNEY
The longest whale watching season follows the epic annual migration of humpback, southern right whales and the rare blue whale, from the food-rich Southern Ocean in the South West to the warm breeding grounds on the north Kimberley coast.
Between May and December, humpback, southern right and blue whales make their way along Western Australia’s coast, often coming so close to shore with their calves you can see them with binoculars or the naked eye from coastal vantage points. The best time to observe these gentle giants of the ocean is at midday, when the sun is directly overhead.
You can get even closer to the breaching and tail-slapping action on a whale watching cruise, and between January and March, an expedition to the marine-life hotspot of Bremer Bay Canyon will bring magical encounters with Southern Hemisphere’s largest pod of killer whales (orcas).
