Location

See the largest fish in the world in the popular, wildlife-rich Ningaloo Reef region off the coast of Exmouth, WA with this incredible opportunity to swim with Whale Sharks! With multiple inclusions in the cost of the tour price - such as accommodation transfers from Exmouth, morning and afternoon tea and a gourmet buffet seafood lunch - you'll have everything you need to simply relax and enjoy the experience of getting into the water with these impressive marine animals within the Ningaloo Reef's pristine waters.

In addition to the roaming boat, this tour also includes the operation of a spotter aircraft whose job is to scan the reef for whale sharks from above to allow the boat to distance themselves from other vessels and still have an incredible encounter. The whale sharks tend to travel at a speed of 3 to 5 km per hour meaning you'll be able to comfortably keep up without being an Olympic swimmer.

Tours depart daily from mid March to mid July and include all necessary equipment including wetsuit and snorkelling gear as well as a complimentary photo package of your experience. For one of the best marine-based experiences in the Exmouth region, book a whale shark swimming experience online today!

  • Transfers to and from your Exmouth accommodation

Highlights

  • Private spotter plane used offering more 'in-water time' with the Whale Shark
  • Although they can dive to depths of 1500m the whale sharks found at Ningaloo Reef are generally swimming on the surface and travel at about 3-5kms per hour
  • During the whale shark season at Ningaloo Reef up to 175 different sharks are sited throughout the season, making it one of the largest, most significant and reliable aggregations of these amazing animals anywhere in the world
  • The fast, modern, well equipped 18m vessel features comfortable cushioned seating, a large shaded deck area, broad timber swim platform, clear side curtains on the main deck that allow great viewing whilst protecting you from the wind and spray, a large bow area for marine animal viewing, full galley, toilet and hot fresh water rinse shower, making it the perfect vessel to experience the magic of the Ningaloo Reef
  • Tours feature an exclusive spotter aircraft to search the reef for Whale Sharks, allowing the boat to move freely and venture to its own areas and find Whale Sharks away from other vessels

Lara 3 years ago The staff were extremely friendly from pick-up to drop-off. We had the same guides throughout the whole day which makes a big difference (the person driving the bus is probably going to be snorkelling with you too!). Breakfast, snacks, and lunch are catered for (they will even make your tea for you) - they catered reasonably well for vegetarians but coeliacs may have a harder time. If you are not a strong swimmer the guides are happy to help out. We had a practice snorkel on a reef before jumping in with the whale sharks! We took plenty of alternate turns with swimming with the whale shark and it's great because it means you can take a breather. We went in mid-May and even saw some hump backs, dolphins, turtles, and a tiger shark! The best thing was that the staff were very easy-going and were happy to go a bit off-course to 'play' with a dolphin which means you get a great all-round experience of the sea life! We got more than just a whale shark adventure!
