Mum…. ‘Look At Me!’

Anyone who has young Children in their lives may be aware of the term mum.. mum.. mum.. mum.. look at me! Exactly our thoughts today as this young calf decided to breach only a few meters away from our bow and almost land directly on top of her mum

Head Lunge Perfection

A wonderful Friday morning that had us all excited to see who we could meet today! Mothers and their calves were everywhere we looked and many of these pods had a male escort with them which resulted in a lot of spectacular surface behaviour as the numerous pods began…

Escort Pods Allround

Today was a very fun day with many escort pods sighted which always adds a different energy to the environment. The first mother and calf sighted today had only recently had a male Humpback approach them and try to interact with the female, but she was having none of i…

Double Trouble

One of the finest moments when whale watching, a mother and calf both breaching the surface at the same time! It was a very busy morning with mothers and calves all around and being very social mammals we could see plenty of talking going on amongst the pods. We had si…

Protective Mum

A large female Humpback was tail slapping today and although spectacular to watch the reason behind her behaviour was not naturally caused. Unfortunately, amateur vessels had been approaching her too closely and at speed which upset the female who had a young calf. Her…

Picture Perfect Saturday

A magnificent Saturday morning greeted us as we made our way out and it wasn’t long before we met our first mother and calf having a sleepy start to this lovely Saturday. A bit further along we met another mother and calf who seemed very curious towards us as the mothe…

Mums Playgroup

We had three mums and three calves all together for a big playgroup this morning and a few other pods off in the distance watching in on all the activity. Female Humpbacks will often encourage interactions with other mother/calf pods as this is a great opportunity for…

New Head Office

What do you think of Whale Watch Western Australia’s new head office… it is the shiny black one to the left with ocean views! This big Humpback had pectoral fins that would have been 4-5 meters in length and while pec slapping away you could forgive us for mista..

Seaweed Facial

Have you ever had a 100% natural seaweed facial? Well, we are starting to think there must be some very good benefits because one of the young calves we spent some time with today was enjoying a morning facial cleanse amongst the seaweed that was floating in the tide l…

Practicing Behaviours

We sighted many baby Humpback calves today and one little fellow was putting on a very big display of the different Humpback behaviours we often sight which was not only spectacular to watch but also a great example for our guests of the very athletic surface activity…

Skies The Limit

Today is the warmest day we have had since April and what a beauty it was☀️ Humpback whales everywhere we looked and everyone was jumping for joy… including the whales! A male escort who was protecting a mother and calf had a lot of competition today with pod after p…

Peduncle Slap

Today’s lesson of the Language of the Whales™ will focus on the very powerful peduncle slap. Pivoting their head down and using their long pectoral fins for leverage a Humpback whale will then push their peduncle upwards with incredible force resulting in the peduncle…
