Humpback Whales

Humpback Whales are referred to in American Indian culture as the “record-keepers” of the world. It is believed they are one of the most ancient animals to inhabit the earth and hold the history of the earth in them. Humpbacks evolved from land mammals 50 million years ago. To have the opportunity to interact with whales anywhere in the world is both a blessing and a beautiful marine experience. Humpbacks are one of the most acrobatic and interactive of all the great whales. They can grow up to 14 metres in length and 40 tonnes in weight and can propel themselves clear of the water in spectacular breaches with just a couple of kicks of their tails, making them one of the most powerful animals on the planet. In breeding season competing males perform truly spectacular acrobatic displays and sing beautiful, haunting love songs.
Ocean Eco Adventures operates Whale Watching tours from Exmouth, Ningaloo Reef from August to October and from Dunsborough, Geographe Bay November and early December.
Ocean Eco Adventures has a hydrophone fitted on board that allows guests to listen to the calls of the whales as they sing under water. This is an amazing opportunity to experience another dimension of the Humpback Whale experience.

 
Humpback Whale Research Cruise
- Exmouth Gulf  Ningaloo Reef, Exmouth between August and November

The vast Western Australian coastline hosts the largest migrating herd of humpback whales in the world, currently estimated at over 30,000 individuals.
Exmouth Gulf is a critical habitat for these threatened whales between August and November each year with some of the highest concentrations per square km observed anywhere in the world.
As part of its commitment to preserving this critical habitat, Ocean Eco Adventures is conducting research to help establish how many whales are visiting the gulf and to ID as many as possible with computer software that records the unique pattern on the underside of their tail flukes. Join us on a tour that aims to make a difference and not only enjoy true world class whale watching but venture into distant parts of Exmouth Gulf not normally visited and help us to help them.
Complimented by a variety of great food (including Exmouth prawns) and service, a knowledgeable and informative crew and whale song from an onboard hydrophone. A photo CD of the day is also included as a gift from Ocean Eco Adventures.
