WhaleShark Swim(Rhincodon Typus)

This fish, the largest of the shark family and the largest fish in the world, is a harmless plankton eater. Reported to reach 18 metres (60ft) but averages 12 metres (40ft) in length, the whale shark is easily identified by its huge size, wide mouth and distinctive pattern of white spots. Thought to mainly inhabit worldwide temperate and tropical seas, it is rarely seen in shallow coastal waters, but is a daily visitor to the Ningaloo Reef every year between late March to July when up to 30 whale sharks have been spotted close to the reef feeding on the plankton in the nutrient rich waters.

The "Worlds Leading Whale Shark Swim Team" invites you to experience a unique ocean experience in swimming with the largest fish in the ocean. From late March to July each year the Whale Sharks converge on the nutrient rich waters of the Ningaloo Reef. Exmouth Diving Centre's professional crew will take you on a sensational day of adventure that you will never forget.

With Mutual Respect

The Whale Sharks we visit are exceptionally consistent in their habits and successful encounters are extremely reliable. But please remember we are visiting wild animals in their own environment. We ask you to approach each encounter with caution and respect, and never to presume we have any control over their appearance or actions whatsoever. These whale sharks favour our encounters with curiosity and much tolerance.

We like to return the favour.
