Whale Watching in Perth
Blue Whale Watching Season
From March to May, you can tour to the Perth Canyon 30 nautical miles off the coast of Perth to see the elusive Blue Whale - the only place in Australia you can see these magnificent animals feeding. The Blue Whale is the rarest whale to ever be seen or photographed!
Humpback Whale Watching Season
WA's Humpback Highway experiences the largest whale migration in the Southern Hemisphere. The Humpback Highway is part of an ancient system of ocean paths that circle the planet, vastly pre-dating any road travelled by man. In April each year, around 35,000 whales leave the rich feeding grounds of Antartica to raise their young in the warmer waters of the Kimberley in WA's north west. Their return journey trip from September - December brings them much closer to Perth's coast, providing the perfect opportunity for an encounter on an thrilling whale watching cruise.
