Cape to Cape Explorer Tours’ staff have been enjoying seeing small numbers of humpback whales recently cruising north along side the famous Cape to Cape Track located in the Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park. The humpback whales are members of Population VI, the world’s largest population now estimated to number more than 30 000 individuals. Population VI are currently migrating north on their annual run from summer time Antarctic feeding grounds, to the Kimberley breeding sites. Most of the whales stay well off the coast and out of sight during the northern migration. However it is a very different story when the whales return in spring. Many mums and calves navigate very close to the coast in the relative safety of shallow water where they provide priceless entertainment for onlookers. The peak migration occurs in October, which happens to coincide with one of the best times of the year to see wildflowers and other natural features out on the Cape to Cape Track.

Cape to Cape Explorer Tours latest full length offering is running in early October. We are only taking 10 people on this exclusive journey, book now to avoid disappointment.

Humpback whales, often energetic and playful, pass close to the Capes' rocky headlands.
