Perth Canyon Blue Whale Experience

4.5 based on all time ratings

The isolated nature of the Perth coastline harbours a smorgasbord of aquatic species under the cloak of its pristine waters. A whale-watching cruise is the idyllic way to celebrate the biodiversity of the Perth Canyon Cardinal to research and data collection, the sightings of the rather elusive and endangered blue whales is one of Western Australia’s best kept secrets. The world’s largest mammal gracefully skims the Perth waters, relying massively on their copious feeding grounds for sustenance prior to their journey further North to labour and rear adorable baby blue whales. This is an ideal time to spot the Blue Whale and in addition to these mighty whales, also spot sea lions, dolphins, sharks and migratory Antarctic seabirds. 

If you’re particularly lucky, you may also be able to catch a glimpse of an Orca (killer whale), the apex predator frequenting the area during feeding and migration periods. 

Over the course of this day-long whale watching cruise originating in Fremantle, you’re offered a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness these magnificent creatures from the epicentre of their natural habitat. The Perth Canyon, located 30 nautical miles off Perth, is a true aquatic hotspot. Larger in size than the Grand Canyon, the Perth Canyon is an unrivalled celebration of marine biodiversity. 

These whale-watching cruises are scheduled at the onset of autumn in Australia, in the months of March up until May. This is an ideal time to spot the humpback whales with occasional sightings of the ‘Dinosaur of the Deep’ i.e. the Blue Whale and the apex predatorial Orca. In addition to these mighty whales, also spot sealions, dolphins, sharks and migratory Antarctic seabirds.
