Orca Air

Orca Air touched down early this morning from Perth as our guests arrived and we welcomed our first Orca Flight Experience for Season 2019 for what was set to be an exciting day with the Orca. Arriving in the Bremer Canyon the Orca were sighted within moments and they were on the move, tracking east and on the hunt. A quick change of direction and all 30+ Orca changed direction and began porpoising towards the heart of the feeding grounds as we followed and watched their incredible power. The families then went on their seperate ways and we enjoyed the curious company of a big male known as Chalky and he is a real charmer! Rolling onto his back and approaching the bow he was staring directly up and towards our guests looking back at him. Throughout the morning Chalky and his family would move past our bow while interacting with our vessel and seemed to have full bellies, it was now time to socialise. A powerful male Orca is impressive at the best of times but when they swim directly at you and appear more along the lines of a torpedo as Chalky approached within centimetres of our vessel, they are truely remarkable to be in the presence of! Another exciting and unique day out in the Canyon as we observed hunting and interactive behaviours with the Orca of Bremer Bay.
