The Bremer Canyon is a stunningly beautiful, remote oceanic habitat abundant with marine wildlife. Naturaliste Charters are researching this remarkable location and focusing on Killer whale vocalisations and their influence on human and Great White Shark interactions. Your participation in this expedition will help important on-going research to continue into the future. Arrival at 8am, the expedition departs Bremer Bay Harbour at 8.30am after a safety briefing. During the 1.5 hour journey to the site, expect to see a variety of seabirds, dolphins and tuna. Killer whales are present at the location 96% of the time, even if they aren't exactly on the coordinate, we usually find them close by. This area is one of the last remaining deep water hydrocarbon reserves located in offshore Australian waters that hasn't been altered by way of exploration drilling. The goal of these citizen science funded Expeditions is to gather information that will help authorities understand how this seasonal ecosystem works and ultimately ensure its continued functionality into the future. Other wildlife commonly seen on the Expedition: Sperm Whales Long-finned Pilot Whales Gray's Beaked Whales Bottlenose and Common Dolphins Sharks including Hammerhead and Blue Sharks Whaler Sharks Giant Squid Australian Sea Lions New Zealand Fur Seals Oceanic Sunfish Tuna Seabirds including Black-browed Albatross, Indian Yellow-nosed Albatross, Light-mantled Sooty Albatross (a rare visitor), Shy Albatross, Wandering Albatross, Flesh-footed Shearwater, Australasian Gannet, White-faced Storm Petrel, Wilson's Storm Petrel, Long-tailed Jaeger.
