Humpback Whale Swim Tour

    Our Ningaloo Reef Humpback Whale Tours offer the flexibility and freedom to swim with humpback whales or observe them from the comfort of the boat.

    Thousands of humpback whales grace waters off Exmouth between June through to the end of October, as they make their migratory journey north from the Antarctic for mating and calving, and return south for the summer feeding grounds. During their migration cycle, they use Ningaloo’s pristine waters as their ‘resting area’, and we are privileged to have an incredible 40,000 mammals pass by our doorstep every year.

    Because of our responsible approach to ethical tourism, and years of experience, we are one of the few companies that are licensed to offer Humpback Whale Swims to the public from August each year.

    Our humpback whale tours offer an experience you’ll remember forever. Whether you choose to swim in the water under the careful guidance of our experienced Divemasters, or opt to remain on board to appreciate the size and scale of the whales from above the surface, one things for certain: you’ll never forget the first time you see these playful, gentle creatures in action.

    Our carefully structured tours are designed to maximize your humpback experience while offering the best value for money.

      Humpback Whale Swim

      THIS TOUR IS FOR GOOD SNORKELLERS ONLY!

      From August 1st until the end of November we are authorized to operate tours where guests may enter the water when the whales are relaxed, with a maximum of  group of 7 swimmers plus a guide & Videographer in the water at a time, while non-swimming guests observe the whales the boat manoeuvring  as close as 75 meters! This is closer than any other whale watching cruise in Australia. This will give you a very special view for non-swimmers to enjoy the whales as they display their natural behaviours. FREE Video of your day Included (USB Not included, may be purchased)

      The swimmers, with the careful watch of their guide, will slide into the water and approach the Humpback Whale. We have strict distance guidelines and safety is paramount in these very special encounters. Swimmers can approach as close as 30 meters from the whale which will provide an excellent surface view of the animals and allow the swimmers to hear their beautiful songs. The whales are curious and are allowed to approach us within 15 metres giving us a unique close encounter.  Our dedicated spotter plane pilot personally talks via radio, to the in-water guide to ensure a great interaction.

      Before entering the water near a whale, swimmers will be required to take a quick in water swimming assessment as required by our license conditions. You must be physically fit, over 13years old, MUST be a good snorkeller and have snorkelled within the past 6 months to be eligible to enter the water with a whale.

      We also include an in water interaction Guarantee… If you don’t get to experience an in water interaction with a Whale, Whaleshark or Manta Ray, you get 50% off the ticket price of your next Whale swim tour.
