Ningaloo Reef Whale Shark Swim Tour
Tour itinerary - 1 Days

  • Day 1 Whale Shark Swim
    After being collected from your accommodation by our air-conditioned bus, you will be welcomed aboard by crew on our boat. Swim in one of the worlds most beautiful reefs, the Ningaloo Reef. Spot for turtles, dugongs, mantarays, coral and tropical fish. You can borrow a floatation noodle, kayak or stand-up paddle board if you like. The spotter plane will be out looking for whale sharks at this time. When a whale shark has been spotted off we go to swim with them. Two groups of ten will be continuously rotated in the water with the whale sharks, giving you short rest periods inbetween swimming with the gentle giants. You can swim with them as few or as many times as you like. A professional photographer is around capturing every moment and from the very best angle for you to take home. Lunch is included as we continue to look for Manta Rays, Dugongs and even Humpback Whales (when in season). You’ll get yet another chance to pack more into your trip, go snorkelling or make use of our Kayaks and Paddle Boards. To celebrate all the Whale Shark swimming, kick back and enjoy with a glass of bubbly and a fruit platter while we make our way back to Exmouth. We will drop you back at your accommodation.
