Tour begins at the Coral Bay Ecotours office, followed by a short bus transfer to the jetty to board the vessel. Enjoy your first reef snorkel experience in the beautiful coral gardens where you may encounter numerous fish, reef sharks and other marine species.

After morning tea, begin your journey to the outer reef. The spotter plane will be out searching for whale sharks and advising of any other exciting marine life spotted along the way! Coral Bay Ecotours will do their best to allow you to experience as much wildlife as possible during the tour. Once the spotter plane has found a whale shark, the boat will make its’ way there.

Guests will be split into two groups of 10 and take turns to swim with the whale shark. To ensure that they don’t disturb the natural habitat, swimmers are allowed a maximum one hour of swimming time with the whale shark.

You will stop along the way home for a second reef snorkel at a different site. To finish the day, celebrate with a glass of champagne!

This full day tour day begins with a beautiful reef experience snorkel where you may encounter turtles, reef sharks, stingrays and various species of fish! They then make their way out to the open ocean to observe the whales in their playground.

If and when their trained guide deems it is safe to do so, guests will be separated into groups of seven, ready to enter the water. With the groups taking turns, seven swimming guests will enter the water with two crew at a time positioned to the side or in front of the whale’s path at a safe distance. It is then all up to the whales – each interaction will be on their terms. Humpback whales can be curious and may approach swimmers, or they may simply pass by.

When you have finished your time with the humpback whales, you will make your way back inside the reef to have lunch and do a final reef snorkel.

On their way back to the jetty they will provide you with a glass of champagne and a fruit platter to finish the day off in style.
