Humpback Whales

The most acrobatic cetacean species for their size, the Humpback Whale

The Humpback Whale can reach 14-16 meters in length and weigh up to 45 tons. The Western Australian coastline welcomes the arrival every year of the largest Humpback Whale migration on the planet throughout our winter and spring. The migration observes many spectacular behaviours and surface activities as the whales light up our coastline with the Language of the Whales which you can learn onboard every Whale Watch Western Australia tour.

Our dedication to research can be seen onboard every tour and our Humpback Whale catalogue numbers in the thousands of individuals. During each tour we collect photo identification images to add to our ever growing catalogue to document the population. The fluke of a Humpback Whale is just like a fingerprint for each individual.
