Ningaloo whale shark swim on a powerboat
Swimming with a whale shark is un unforgettable once in a lifetime experience that people come from all over the world to do. Whale sharks are the largest fish in the world growing up to a possible 18m long and Ningaloo Reef plays host to these amazing animals every year from March till the end of July. This is the only place in the world where they congregate so predictably and in such large numbers.
Guests of the tour will experience on-board a large, shaded and spacious powerboat, which provides ample space and comfort while soaking up and enjoying the beauty of the Ningaloo Marine Park. Your crew will organise you into small groups of up to 10, and as soon as a whale shark is spotted, you will be directed to put their snorkel gear and enter the waters of Ningaloo Reef and swim with whale sharks. Guests who book on as "Observers" are welcome to participate in all activities except for entering the water with a whale shark.
After your swim with the sharks you will enjoy a lunch buffet on board the boat. In the afternoon you will stop to immerse yourself in the crystal clear waters of a sheltered lagoon for free time snorkeling. Here you will see an array of corals and colourful fish, sometimes even turtles and rays! Weather and time permitting try your hand at one of our Stand Up Paddle Boards or a Glass Bottom Kayak during the afternoon snorkel for a different view of the reef. Following your full-day tour swimming in the waters relax with a refreshing afternoon tea and a glass of sparkling wine on our way back to shore before the crew returns you to your accommodations in Exmouth.
