    Stop: 6 hours
    Come snorkel with the biggest fish in the sea! Join us for a full day tour on one of our big stable boats for a day of fun on the World Heritage Ningaloo Reef. We use spotter planes to locate the whalesharks as they are in the wild, not fed by us to attract them. Then it’s time to get in with our experienced guides who will lead you on the greatest adventure of a lifetime! On board our marine biologist will teach you all about whalesharks and reef ecology. You will also have the chance to see Manta Rays, Humpbacks, Dugongs and dolphins. Our videographer will take great video of the day – yours free to keep! We offer a good swim guarantee, and one free repeat tour per paying passenger in the unlikely event that we do not sight a whaleshark. Snacks, buffet lunch & refreshments throughout the day. Available daily 7am-4.30pm March to early August.

Response from mark f, General Manager at Deluxe WhaleShark Swim Tour on the Ningaloo Reef from Exmouth
Responded 15 Aug 2020
Hi, we do everything possible to get you a swim with a whaleshark. We work with all of the other boats & as the whalesharks do not stay on the surface forever, they dive deep. On the day you were out 99% of the boats did not see a whaleshark. One other boat had a very small glimpse of a whaleshark deep underwater. We give you a repeat voucher to come again. You chose to use it straight away, & unfortunately was on a rough day. A wiser thing would have been to come back earlier in the season. You ended up seeing whales, Manta rays & Orca's, lots of snorkelling too.

If you'd like to see the Whalesharks and have a great family day out, I would highly recommend Exmouth Dive Ctr. Having an experienced Captain (Geoff) and crew plus the spotter plane all day made for a fantastic, action packed day out. We swam with multiple different

Loved every second of this experience. I went at the end of June 2019. The boat and dive crew we had were great. Very chilled out, all had a good laugh. Clearly very passionate about the reef and wildlife we encountered and cared a lot about their wellbeing. We started with a

My teenagers went out for the day for my son’s 18th birthday and they had the BEST time! Being the 31st Oct i warned them they would probably miss whale sharks but the crew found one and my kids swam with it. They also saw a humpback whale and her calf, & a rare Leopard shark

My wife and I (elderly couple, my wife NOT a great swimmer) took on "the challenge" of this tour, fully accepting that it might prove too highly energetic (= "difficult") for our capabilities..... well, what a day it turned out to be! The weather was quite co-operative,
