Ningaloo Whale Watching Cruises

Ningaloo Reef is a destination that deserves a spot on every traveller's bucket list. Unlike other popular reefs, it remains relatively untouched and is renowned for its unspoiled beauty, vibrant coral gardens and pristine turquoise waters.

Ningaloo Reef is also one of the few places on Earth where you can swim alongside the world's largest fish, the magnificent whale shark. These whale sharks arrive in the reef waters during March and stay until late July, sometimes till August. A Ningaloo reef whale shark tour is the best way to make this bucket-list worthy activity a reality.

Why Choose Us?

With over six whale shark swims and humpback whale tours, we’re the go-to choice for anyone looking for adventure on the reef. Most of the tours are personalised and offer a more intimate experience, allowing for better interaction with the marine life without disturbing their peace. Whether you prefer to swim with whale sharks of Ningaloo or watch a humpback leap out of the water, or both, we’ve got the right tours. And depending on your time, budget, and personal preferences like food choices, and duration, you can easily choose the right tour.

Whale Shark & Whale Encounters

While spotter planes do what they do best and spot a giant in the ocean, you can explore the inner reefs and get familiar with your snorkel gear. See the reef’s incredible diversity of marine life including manta rays, sea turtles, tropical fish and more. Once the whale sharks or humpbacks are spotted and the captain gives you the green signal, you are ready to enter the water again from a safe distance.

As the spotty shark or a colossal whale gently cruises towards you, you’ll be in awe of its sheer size and magnificence. Your guide will then instruct you to swim in a specific direction to swim alongside it in what will be one of the most magical experiences you’ve ever had.

Depending on the size of the tour and the number of sightings, you’ll get the opportunity to repeat the process as much as time permits. Your tour culminates with a lunch or continues with more inner reef snorkelling. (again, depending on the tour) 

Each tour will be accompanied by an experienced crew who are passionate about the marine life of Ningaloo. They will ensure you an unforgettable experience while leaving minimal impact on the environment.
