FIRST TIME EVER RELEASED TO THE PUBLIC ~ THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME
Biomass bonanza which stands unrivalled on the Western Australian coastline as the marine production epicentre.
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 carved from the Swan River mouth, the area is abundant with sea life that gathers for the feeding feast and is unrivalled as the epicentre for biodiversity in the West Australian summer.
The Blue Whales are endangered and current numbers are estimated at 12-20,000 world wide 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. 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 new 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 many other mega fauna’s and Antarctic migratory seabird’s.
Other species sighted in the Perth Canyon include
- Blue Whales
- Sperm Whales
- Orca’s (Killer Whales)
- Pilot Whales
- Beaked Whales
- Dolphins (many different species)
- Sea Lions
- Migratory Antartic Sea Birds
- Sharks (many species including Great Whites)
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 in this pristine environment.
The area has also had sightings of the apex predator, the Orca or Killer Whale, which is known to frequent the area during the feeding and migration periods.
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 Learn the Language of the Whales & Discover the Dinosaurs of the Deep.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to witness the largest mammal species ever to grace our planet.
Included in the expedition is a delicious morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea with all drinks along with our legendary VIP service.
