We Offer our Guarantee from 1st March until the 1st of August.
During this time, we offer guests above the age of six the opportunity to undertake the whale shark experience of a lifetime – the chance to get up close and personal with the world’s largest fish.
Our whale shark swims give you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the crystal waters of Ningaloo Reef and swim alongside these gentle giants as they cruise the waters of Western Australia’s north west cape, their annual meeting ground for up to six months.
A Whale Shark Swim at Ningaloo Reef is a giant tick off your travel experience and dream destination bucket list!
Whale shark swims are our specialty! Spend a day with our fully-qualified team and experience the Exmouth Dive & Whale Shark difference. You can expect a fantastic day on – and in – the water, where the comfort and enjoyment of our guests and the whale sharks is our top priority.
Our light aircrafts are in the air longer than any other whale shark swim company along the North West Cape, and our boats are always first on the water. Our ‘early bird’ approach means we’re able to spot whale sharks and humpback whales from above and head directly to their location before any other tour company. With no time or money wasted in the search for these majestic leviathans, you’re guaranteed more time swimming with the whale sharks. In fact, we’re so confident your experience will exceed your expectations, we back it with our unique Whale Shark Good Swim Guarantee.
When you book with the world’s leading whale shark dive team, you can expect professional service from start to finish.
We’re proud to donate a portion of every whale shark and humpback whale swim to Parks & Wildlife to assist in their research initiatives.
Every year, whale sharks, the world’s largest known fish, make their way to the peaceful waters off the coast of Exmouth in their quest for food.
Ningaloo Reef’s remarkable eco-system attracts hundreds of whale sharks with its abundance of naturally-occurring food that starts with the annual spawning of coral in March, and continues with the upwelling of nutrient-rich waters from the continental shelf that lies beneath Ningaloo. With plankton drifting closer to the surface, whale sharks gather en masse at Ningaloo to take advantage of easy, abundant feeding.
While whale sharks can grow to an impressive 15 meters in length, and have a mouth almost 1.5 meters wide, they pose no danger to humans. They are calm, slow moving, naturally curious fish that are undisturbed by snorkellers swimming in close proximity.
Whale sharks prefer warm and temperate seas, and while they can be found in several other locations around the world for a month or two, there is no place quite like Ningaloo Reef to meet naturally-feeding whale sharks in such a large congregation across such an extended season. You’ll be awestruck by their size and beauty.
