Overview
Swimming with sharks may sound frightening, but with the docile whale shark, animal lovers can enjoy a totally safe and exhilarating swim alongside these gentle giants. With this catamaran adventure from Exmouth, hop aboard your sailboat and cruise to Ningaloo Reef for your underwater exploration. Once your crew spots the whale sharks, you can swim with these incredible animals, try a few water sports, and refuel with a buffet lunch—all included.

    Stop: 9 hours
    Warm up by having a morning snorkel on Ningaloo Reef, one of the most beautiful reefs in the world and discover an abundance of coral, tropical fish, turtles and potentially even manta rays or dugongs. Our guides will be right there with you in the water to steer you in the right direction, and to pay special attention to any modest swimmers. Feel free to grab one of our floating noodles should you feel like the extra bit of flotation. You will then be split into two groups and prepare for your jump into the crystal clear waters of the Ningaloo You and your guide drop in and get up close and personal to the worlds biggest fish, this is your chance to experience wonder and marvel at the sheer size, grace and elegance of the Whale Shark! Most of these sharks are between 4 and 12 metres long but have been know to grow as large as 18 metres! Our professional photographer is all the while capturing every moment and from the very best angle for you to take home.
