Witness An Incredible Array of Ocean Life 


There are many other kinds of marine life that you might observe alongside Bremer Bay Orcas on your expedition. These include sperm whales, long-finned pilot whales, and the rarer beaked or blue whales. If it’s your lucky day, you might even come up close and personal with pods of striped, bottlenose, and other species of dolphins leaping in and out of the water! You could also spot different species of sharks, including the great whites, whaler sharks, and the stunning oceanic blue.

If some sunfish and remains of a gigantic predator squid come up near the surface, you might find that this attracts a whole host of guests including sea lions, migratory Antarctic sea birds, and more dolphins. Our orca experience whale watching tours are led by Marine Biologists who will provide live educational commentary for the most authentic, current information about the marine life of Bremer Bay. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and enjoy the company of your fellow travellers as you witness the glory of marine life.
