Bremer Bay Orca Air
BREMER BAY ORCA EXPERIENCE
The Bremer Canyon and nearby canyon's are the feeding grounds for these apex predators. Some of the local pod's are known to be generalist Orca's, which means they feed on a varied diet including other cetacean's, however in the summer time they predominantly feed on the giant and colossal squid that come into the area.
This is your opportunity to be a part of a new frontier of research and development with Whale Watch Western Australia.
THE BREMER CANYON
Discovered by marine researchers just a decade ago the Bremer Canyon plays host to the largest congregation of Orca's in the Southern Hemisphere.
It is believed that a very deep Antarctic flow enters the canyon gathering bio carbons which create a nutrient rich environment which collides with the Leeuwin Current flow and the topography of the canyon creates an oceanic eddy.
This interaction creates nutrient rich up welling waters where phytoplankton develops and an intense food chain for marine life propsers.
Orca's are at the top of that food chain.
Orcas are the largest of the toothed whale from the oceanic dolphin family.
Orca males can measure 6-8m in length and weigh in excess of 6 tons, females are slightly smaller at 5-7m and 3-4 tons.The largest ever recorded was 9.8m and weighed 10 tons.
Extremely social and inquisitive these apex predators are regarded as the best hunters in the ocean.
Join our Pod as we discover the Bremer Canyon Orca's.
