Title: Perth and its pods of whales!

Perth and its pods of whales!
(No Transcript)
  • The mighty mammals of the sea flock to the
    pristine waters of Perth year-round as they
    migrate in search of their future partners.
    Unlike other whale watching locations, the waters
    of Perth are visited by a number of whale species
    mainly humpbacks and blue whales.The whales
    tend to swim close to the shore which will let
    you spot them with your bare eyes. If you think
    this is awesome, think about a vantage point from
    where you are just metres away from these
    magnificent creatures. Perth whale watching
    cruises crafted with the sole purpose of creating
    exceptional experience delivers you the same.

  • Although Perth has a year-round whale watching
    season, you would be able to see them the best
    during two main peak seasons so make sure you
    time your visit according to the type of whale
    species you would like to see.
  • From the month of March to May you will be
    treated with the view of the mesmerising humpback
    whales as they migrate north. To watch the
    endangered southern right whales the month of
    August is the best time. If you are lucky enough
    you will be able to spot humpback whales as well
    but not as many as in the month of May.

  • The southward migrating humpback whales tend to
    lodge in the shallow waters of Perth. From
    September to late November humpback whales can be
    found with great regularity towards the south of
    Perth. After the ban of commercial whaling, the
    Southern Right whales have increased in number
    because of which we are able to see more of it.
    There are numerous land-based lookouts with
    excellent vantage points as well as spectacular
    Perth whale watching cruises available in the
    Sydney South West region of Western Australia.

  • The southern right whales and humpback whales
    migrate every year in May from the food-rich
    southern ocean in search of breeding grounds in
    the warm northern waters. During November the
    same pods of whales return south to the colder
    seas to nurture the young ones. Watch them show
    off their aquatic skills from the comfort of a
    Perth whale watching cruise as these magnificent
    mammals travel to the warm waters of the Indian
    Ocean following the continental shelf embracing
    the coast.

  • For Perth, whales are not just a magnet to
    attract tourists, they play a vital role in
    stabilizing the food chain and reproduction of
    other species. Commercial whaling had
    destabilized and had caused a drastic change in
    the food supply of many other marine inhabitants.
    Studies regarding whales and their influence on
    the ecosystem, has led to a lot of discoveries
    regarding echolocation, marine life/biology,
    aquatic environments and marine mammal
    intelligence. Know more about this from the
    marine biologist onboard all-inclusive Perth
    whale watching cruises.
