Full description

Be picked up bright and early from your Exmouth accommodation. You will be driven to Tantabiddi Bay where your comfortable and stable boat will be the first on the water. Begin your ocean adventure with a snorkel tour of the Ningaloo Reef. Meanwhile, a spotter plane will locate the whale sharks and with a longer air time than most, this means that as many Whale Sharks as possible can be located throughout the day. From late March to August each year, the whale sharks converge on the nutrient rich waters of the Ningaloo Reef. The largest of the shark family, and the largest fish in the world, the whale shark is a harmless plankton eater, making it a perfect shark to swim with!

Your experienced guides will accompany you into the water and lead you on the greatest adventure of a lifetime, swimming with the magnificent whale sharks! A videographer will capture your unforgettable experience with complimentary video and photos during the day included as a part of the tour. A ‘Good Swim Guarantee’ means in the unlikely event that you do not sight a whale shark then you can return for one free repeat tour.
