Bremer Bay Orca 2 Day Bus Tour
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
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, the Flinders Current 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 prospers.
Orca's are at the top of that food chain.
Orcas are the largest of 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.

The Bremer Canyon, which is located 25nm from Bremer Bay out into the Southern Ocean, plays host to the largest congregation of Orca’s in the Southern Hemisphere. It is believed the canyon generates a nutrient rich environment which entices many marine species to the area each year. At this time of year the Orca's prey upon Giant & Colossal squid that come into the area as they hunt upon the tuna and cod which are chasing the abundant krill. Enjoy lunch on board and drink refreshments which are included in your tour as you take in the natural surroundings and the amazing wildlife.
