    What to Expect
    Your whale shark adventure begins at approximately 7.30am with pickup from your accommodation in Exmouth by air-conditioned bus. Travel by road for approximately 30-minutes to to Tantabiddi Boat Ramp where your boat and crew await.

    By 9am you'll be snorkeling on the beautiful Ningaloo Reef. A spotter plane begins looking for whale sharks and once spotted, your whale shark experience begins with the opportunity of swimming with the gentle giants of the Ningaloo Reef.

    Morning tea, afternoon tea and a full buffet lunch are included, as well as refreshments throughout the day. The tour ends with a few more swims on the Ningaloo Reef, before heading back to your accommodation at approximately 4pm. Snorkel gear, wetsuit and floating noodles (as required) are all included in the price.

    For those who do not want to swim with whale sharks, please select the observer option at the time of booking. You will still have the opportunity to snorkel amongst the other amazing marine life on Ningaloo Reef.

    The crew were excellent very professional but maintaining the personal touch. When the spotter plane spotted a whale shark the skipper went full steam to get to the site. Had five swims with the fish. Very happy.

    With one of the fastest boats in the fleet, we're never too far from the action. Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us.

    I paid for snorkeling with Whale sharks, but while we waited for a sighting, we got to see Humpback whales up close and a Manta ray came by! Although you only get a short time to swim with the Whale shark, we had 3 opportunities. I'll never forget putting my face under the water
