Bremer Canyon Killer whale Expeditions, Bremer Bay

#7 of 8 in Things to do in Bremer Bay
Nothing will prepare you for the experience of the Bremer Canyon. It is one of the least explored destinations in the world, and there are not many of those left.

On the edge of the mighty southern ocean lies the tiny town of Bremer Bay, Western Australia. Surrounded by the UNESCO Fitzgerald Biosphere Reserve, the area is internationally recognised for it’s pristine state and high biological diversity. With many species found nowhere else on earth, pristine beaches, and it’s rugged and spectacularly beautiful coastline, Bremer Bay is a dream destination for nature and adventure lovers alike.

Sixty kilometres offshore lies a less well known ecological treasure. Where the Australian continental shelf plummets to the deep ocean the Bremer Canyon lies.

Encounter one of the most astonishing aggregations of marine life anywhere in the world. The canyon deserves it’s growing reputation. It is one of the most amazing places on earth, and the only place you can reliably encounter killer whales (orca), and the largest toothed predator to have ever lived, the sperm whale.

Orca often approach and surround our vessel in clearly mutual fascination. You may even see them hunting, bodies transformed to deadly black and white missiles that rocket through the ocean, while seabirds fill the sky when the hunt is a success. Watch in awe as a sperm whale breaches, it’s 50 ton body landing in a storm of whitewater, the ultimate bombie! In complete contrast, a maternal herd of sperm whale mothers and calves may be seen peacefully logging at the surface like a fleet of haphazardly parked buses.

Delight in the sight of a family of long-finned pilot whales, a creche of calves tucked safe within the extended family pod. Hear the underwater symphony from our hydrophone, the sounds of vocalising whales or dolphins filling the air on deck. These are just a few of the breathtaking moments captured forever in the minds eye of our guests. You will never be more awed by our amazing blue planet.
