Description

The unique waters of Timor Leste and the Wetar Straight are the  seasonal  migratory pathway for pygmy Blue whales. these “pygmy” Blues are giants, reaching a maximum length of up to 24 metres!! After spending the winter in the Banda Sea birthing and mating they are returning to the abundant feeding grounds off SouthWest Australia.

As well as Blue  whales, there are resident pods of SpermWhales regularly seen in the area, not to mention large schools of a variety of dolphins, Pilot whales and sometimes Orcas!!

We operate out of  fast fibreglass boats  8-10 metres in length, powered by quiet and efficient 4 stroke outboards. The boats have ample shade and lunch and refreshments are included. Tropical water temperatures are  above 28 degrees C , a light neoprene or lycra  suit  is all that is required to protect you from the sun and wind.

Our skippers are highly experienced  with great local knowledge and a network of fishermen who update us  hourly of whale activity. Typically we are on the water  . around  5-6 hours  each day.
