Whale Watching Perth
Whale Watching Perth Tours resume September each year through to early December. Because it is a whale migration (north to south), the whale watching season in Perth can only start and continue in the months whales are passing Perth (usually mid-September, October, November, early December – it all depends on the whales!).
There are generally three types of baleen whales to watch off the coast of Western Australia.
Humpback Whale watching (so named because it arches its back as it prepares to dive so creating the shape of a hump)
The Southern Right Whale watching (so named because in the old days of whaling, whalers considered this whale the right one to hunt as it swam very slowly and was therefore easy to catch and because its body was so rich in oil, it floated on the surface after it had been killed)
Blue Whale whale watching which is colored a steely grey on the surface but when seen from below is a beautiful turquoise blue. It is the largest of the Whales, reaching up to 100 feet in length and 130 tonnes in weight.
The blue whale is the loudest animal on Earth! This endangered mammal is also the largest animal that ever lived on Earth; it is larger than any of the giant dinosaurs were.
