WHALE WATCHING

Reefwalker Kalbarri has many years of whale watching experience & knowledge, being the first charter vessel to observe the migration of this unique species in these waters many years ago. Kalbarri is blessed with seasonal (June - November) visits of the majestic Humpback whale and the occasional Southern Right whale. The reason for this migration is simple: while their food supply (krill) is in Antarctica, Humpback whales must give birth in warm waters, as the calves are born without blubber, the layer of fat that protects them from the icy waters. When feeding, a female whale can produce up to 600 litres of milk a day and the calf gains weight at a rate of 45 to 60 kg per day. 

Whilst in the waters of Kalbarri, the whales feed their calves and rest for the journey back to Antarctica.  Reefwalker usually spots whales within 20 minutes, otherwise we can pretty well assure encounters within the hour. Each 2 hour whale watching boat trip is an opportunity to observe these levethians in their marine environment. 

Whale watching in Kalbarri is a very unique and special experience...white sand, clear water,stunning scenery of the cliffs and other marine wildlife. When finished your whale watch cruise, you can spend the rest of the day visiting Kalbarri’s beaches, National Park and many other attractions.
