Blue Whale Watching Expedition from Fremantle

2. Blue Whale Watching Expedition from Fremantle

Depart Fremantle Fishing Boat Harbor and cruise in style on a purpose-built luxury vessel for a 7-hour all-inclusive whale watching experience.  A new eco hot spot off Perth's coastline is the feeding grounds for the largest aggregation of Blue Whales in the southern hemisphere. A little known pristine environment with gargantuan dimensions larger than the Grand Canyon with origins dating back to the entrance of the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia. Research teams have monitored Blue Whales along with many other cetaceans and mega fauna that come here to feed on krill created by the Leeuwin Undercurrent and the Perth Canyon topography. This interaction creates nutrient rich up welling waters where phytoplankton develops and an intense food chain for marine life prospers. This biodiversity includes Dolphins, Australian Sea Lions, Sharks, migratory Antarctic Sea Birds, Sunfish, and much more feed on this biomass bonanza.   Experts will provide live commentary throughout the cruise and answer any questions you may have. An underwater camera and hydrophone allow you to watch and listen to the whales in their natural habitat.
