Deluxe WhaleShark Swim Tour on the Ningaloo Reef from Exmouth
Discover the Ningaloo Reef and swim alongside whale sharks on this all-day guided tour. Learn how to interact with the whale sharks and snorkel around the reef. Spotter planes help locate the sharks, so you’ll be in a prime location to swim with them. Along the way, an onboard marine biologist will teach you about the sharks and reef ecology. In addition, you will have the chance to spot manta rays, humpbacks, dugongs, and dolphins.
What to Expect
Pick-up from your hotel at 7.10am, by Minvan. Transfer to our store and then onto Tantabiddi, about a 30 minute transfer.
The Tender will then transfer you from the dock to our Whaleshark Vessel. After briefings, we enjoy a snorkel on the Ningaloo Reef, which is where we give everyone some snorkel tips and teach you how to interact with the Whalesharks. During a morning snack & Tea breack, the spotter plane then flies over to look for the Whalesharks. As soon as they spot a Whaleshark, the boat moves into position. We swim with the Whaleshark in two groups of Ten. There will be the Videographer and a Guide in the water with you. We also go and look at any other wildlife that we spot, from Dolphins to Manta Rays. After we finishing swimming with sometimes up to five different Whalesharks, we break for a late Buffet lunch. An afternoon snorkel on the reef finishes off the tour. We transfer back to the Jetty and board the Minivan for return to Exmouth at around 4pm. Videos & pictures are supplied Free and can be uploaded the next day from our store onto your memory stick. We have these for sale as a Whaleshark souvenir too.

Enjoyable day, but swimming with whalesharks is not serenity!

Whenever I see photos or footage of whalesharks, it looks so calm and peaceful, a sublime experience. But reality is quite different. The tour, boat and crew were all excellent. but be prepared for a scramble off the boat when a whaleshark is spotted, and...More
