They’re on their way! When the annual whale shark season swings around at Ningaloo, there’s definitely something in the water. The energy and excitement that sweeps Exmouth is more than a six-month celebration—it’s testimony to the love, awe, and respect locals hold for the ocean’s gentlest giants.
At Exmouth Dive & Whale Shark Ningaloo, we’ve been working hard—on land, below the sea, and in the air—to prepare for our spotty aquatic friends as they make their way along the Coral Coast to take advantage of the abundance of food triggered by the annual spawning of coral.
If you’re heading to Exmouth to experience one of the greatest wonders of the marine world in Ningaloo’s world-heritage listed marine park, our up-close whale shark encounters are worth a double-tick off your bucket list.
Our guests describe their whale shark experience as ‘life changing’, ‘exhilarating’ , ‘emotional’, and a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ event. We get it. We’ve been introducing people to whale sharks since 1994, and we still get excited by every sighting!
To experience the appeal and allure of whale sharks on an intimate level, you need to immerse yourself in their natural environment. As the Coral Coast’s longest-running operator of adventure snorkel and swim tours, we’ve spent twenty-five years finetuning our eco-adventures so our guests get the best in-water and on-board experience. You’ll find full details of each of our personalised ‘must do’ tours here.
The first of Ningaloo’s many coral spawnings should be happening any day now, kickstarting the food chain that brings in all the mega fauna. If you want to get caught up in the excitement that’s sweeping the North West Cape along with the whale sharks, now’s the time to make your booking.
If you’re keen to a bit of your own preparation before meeting your first whale shark, you can learn more about them with our Guide to Whale Sharks at Ningaloo Reef
