About Bremer Bay

Bremer Bay is a small, coastal town situated on the Amazing South Coast of Western Australia. It is 180kms to the east and is 60km from the South Coast Highway; which has kept this pristine holiday destination a secret.

Dress Code

We recommend bringing a warm jacket and wearing comfortable layered clothing and flat enclosed shoes. The Bremer Canyon can get quite cold, so please bring warmer clothes with you for the trip.

Concession Information

Are children allowed? Yes, children 10-17 are allowed on the Expedition. This is an adventurous expedition, and as the parent you need to be 100% comfortable and confident in their ability to handle a full day out at sea, a long way from shore. Their comfort will be your full responsibility and understandably if they are not handling the conditions then this may detract from your quality time seeing the Orca’s. Once you’ve made your booking please inform the office by email or phone, if there are any children in your party, and their age. Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have further questions about this.

Weather Information

Temperature: although the tours are during the warmer months it can be a lot colder out on the ocean. Please bring appropriate clothing.

Other Information

Your day starts at 5.30am when the Busy Blue Bus picks you up at the Albany Visitors' Centre. You are on a 180 kilometre journey to the Bremer Bay Marina departure point for the Killer Whale Expedition. During the drive to Bremer Bay, our Busy Blue Bus Tour Guide driver provides an informative and factual commentary on the pioneering history and riches of the Amazing South Coast. The day's program is outlined, to ensure you feel relaxed, informed and comfortable about the upcoming day's events.

At the Bremer Bay Marina you are transferred into the care of Naturaliste Charters’ crew. Once on board, the crew are introduced and a vessel safety brief is given. The marine adventure begins! Morning tea is provided and anticipation builds as we head to the edge of the shelf and the Bremer Canyon. The deck starts to buzz as the crew and researchers make preparations in readiness for the first glimpse of action; the adventure is about to begin! You’ll feel a mix of apprehension and a hint of exhilaration!

Then you see it! Emerging in the distance are birds hovering, the disturbance of the water, tails and fins in vigorous motion. The movement and action, as you get closer, creates a feeling of amazement and excitement.

In the midst of the action, a delicious fresh lunch is served. Take time out to enjoy. Later, as you return to the Marina, there is afternoon tea and refreshments. The Busy Blue Bus will be at the Bremer Bay Marina when the boat pulls in. We’ll be there to nurture your memories on your return to Albany that night, awash with this extraordinary experience. Let us do the driving and we’ll show you more!
