Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable staff which led to a great experience for all (even those with less ability). Brilliant sight of the whale shark(s) swimming past on several occasions- well organised and slick operation. Even the food, including the chocolate brownies were awesome.

Hi steveandinga, Thank you so much for the lovely review. Glad the trip was still a success for you, despite Steve falling ill to the dreaded seasickness. The partial refund was the least we could do. We are just sorry Steve didn't get to experience it for himself this time! Thanks again for joining us :) More

I'm not a strong swimmer and of a 'certain' age group around the baby boomer region but I was so well looked after by the whole crew. I'd recommend this tour as they are the only tour, as far as I'm aware, that has a tender boat alongside you in case you need a rest or need to get out... More

Hi Shelia R, thank you so much for your fantastic review! It's so lovely to hear all the crew took care of you. It can be quite a daunting task, jumping into the big ocean with a large shark, so it is so important the crew are understanding, friendly and helpful! And it sounds like they were that day :)...

My partner and I did the whale shark swimming with 3 islands in June 2016. This was without a doubt one of the most amazing trips we've ever done. We managed to swim three times with two different whale sharks which was an unbelievable experience. We also saw a vast array of wildlife including two different species of dolphins. We... More

I went far out of my way to Exmouth Australia just for the best Eco marine friendly encounter with the biggest fish in the ocean. It was so good that I went back 2 days later cause that's what I went there for. The entire staff is fabulous, the size, the food, the safe and responsible way in which tourism... More

When you put yourselves in the hands of people, who know what they are doing, love what they do, care about the place where they do it and the people and creatures involved, how can you go wrong.

3 Islands is a well run operation that I would recommend to anyone wanting to swim with whale sharks. They get everyone lined up in the best vantage spots to see the sharks, while keeping you at a safe distance, and provide you with a disc of photos from the day to take home (which are fantastic). All the staff... More

Couldn't recommend this company more for this ultimate experience. So passionate about the sea and marine life, great boat, very safety conscience, super professional. Wouldn't look anywhere else to do this again.
