1 Day Whale Shark Swim & Eco Tour from  Exmouth

Adults from $280

Swim With The Largest Fish In The Sea, The Whale Shark, On This Once In A Lifetime Adventure

Whale sharks are regular visitors to the Ningaloo Reef, even after the official whale shark season is over. This means that on board our Eco Tours which run from August to October guests will also have the opportunity to swim with the whale sharks during the shoulder season when sighted by our spotter plane.

The Ningaloo Reef is abundant with marine wildlife during the month of August and on any given day Mother Nature may present the chance to view or swim with Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Humpback Whales, Turtles, dugongs, dolphins and a huge diversity of tropical fish and corals.

The tour offers guests the most well-built and convenient viewing platforms to observe and interact with this wildlife from the decks of the 58ft luxuriously designated sailing catamaran. Join the crew for a day out on “Windcheetah” and set sail through the shallow turquoise lagoons and along the back of the stunning Ningaloo Reef whilst stopping to take advantage of whatever spectacular wildlife comes our way.

Your day includes the opportunity to snorkel the reef, view Humpback Whales, spot turtles, dolphins and dugongs. If the opportunity presents itself to swim with a Humpback Whale or Whale Shark the option is there to upgrade on-board on the day for an additional “Humpback Whale/Whale Shark Swim Fee” of $50 cash per person. We also often encounter the curious and interactive Manta Rays and do our best to get you for a swim with these interesting and majestic creatures at no extra charge.

Weather and time permitting try your hand at one of our Stand Up Paddle Boards or a kayak during the afternoon snorkel for a different view of the reef.

**Please note that you must have basic swimming ability to participate in water activities.
