**THE ONLY BLUE WHALE TOUR IN AUSTRALIA ~ THE OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN OUR RESEARCH TEAM & WITNESS THE LARGEST MAMMAL TO EVER LIVE FEEDING IN THE PERTH CANYON **
The Perth Canyon is a marine hotspot 30 nautical miles 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 the original Swan River mouth, the area is abundant with sea life that gathers for the feeding feast and is unrivalled as the epicentre for biodiversity on the Western Australian coastline.
** 'Biomass bonanza which stands unrivalled on the Western Australian coastline as the marine production epicentre'. - Professor Pattiarachi University of Western Australia. **
The Blue Whales are endangered and current numbers are estimated at only 12-20,000 WORLD WIDE, and less than 2,000 in Australia, 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 for a lifetime. You now have the opportunity to join our team as we research, photograph and collect data that will hopefully develop a clearer identity of this unique eco wilderness, it's magnificent biodiversity and it's closely held secrets.
This expedition 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 other cetacean and birdlife. This tour is dedicated to finding, tracking & researching the Blue Whales as they search for feeding grounds throughout the Perth Canyon.
The Perth waters are very much an unknown as being the most isolated coastline in the world we are still discovering the many different species & migratory birdlife in this pristine environment.
The eco habitat from the nutrient rich up welling Leeuwin Undercurrent enables Perth Canyon to create a feeding biomass bonanza for the eco system from the smallest to the largest of ocean wonders and you can join the team as we locate and track the world's largest mammal.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness something that very few humans have seen or discovered.
Included in the expedition is a delicious morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea with all drinks along with our legendary VIP service.
