Swim with Whale Sharks

Natural Attractions

Every year the world’s biggest fish congregate along the Ningaloo Reef – whale sharks! These massive yet completely harmless creatures can grow up to 12 metres long and the Ningaloo Reef is one of the only places on the planet where they regularly aggregate in large numbers.

The chance to snorkel with these gentle giants is the opportunity of a lifetime, attracting visitors from all over the world. Full day whale shark swim eco-tours operate out of both Exmouth and Coral Bay most days of the March-August season, taking visitors to experience an unforgettable close up interaction.

Whale sharks are slow moving, docile creatures that spend the majority of their time right up on the surface of the water. Therefore, tour participants only need to be competent swimmers to enjoy this amazing in-water experience.

The Ningaloo’s whale shark season generally runs from March to August, however, the season can often stretch through September or even October. Visit Exmouth or Coral Bay to enjoy this true bucket list thrill.
