Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Exmouth, and then journey by air-conditioned bus to board a whale shark vessel and discover the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ningaloo Reef. Climb aboard the purpose-built, stable and super comfortable boat and meet the crew to get kitted out with your fins, masks and wetsuits. Once everyone feels at ease, explore the first snorkel site to discover an abundance of coral, tropical fish, turtles and even manta rays or dugongs on occasions. Your experienced guides will be right beside you in the water for your comfort and safety.  As you explore the reef, a spotter plane will be searching for the first whale sharks cruising nearby. Once spotted, get up close and personal with the mighty fish that can grow to between 4 and 12 meters long. A professional photographer will be on board to capture every moment and provide you with a captivating souvenir at no extra charge.  Enjoy a complimentary lunch as you continue on your way, looking for manta rays, dugongs and even humpback whales in season. Stop for another snorkel session, or make use of the kayaks and stand-up paddleboards to experience the water from a different perspective. Then, kick back in a cargo net and get a refreshing tow through the shallow waters with a glass of sparkling wine and a seasonal fruit platter. Relax as the catamaran meanders its way back to the mainland, where a vehicle will be waiting to take you back to your accommodation.

    The tour was absolutely amazing! An indescribable experience and I would recommend everyone to swim with these unique animals. The staff was very nice and took good care of the guests. The other 2 snorkeling stops were also very nice, and you can see reef sharks, turtles and countless colorful fish. Many thanks to the crew!

    One of the best days of my life! The entire organization, the equipment and last but not least the crew were simply incredible. I have never had an organization that tries so hard to organize a perfect day for the participants. The boat was great, the food was a dream and above all the crew was so incredibly great and loving. You didn't feel like a customer on the boat, but as part of a group of friends who had a great day together! By far the best organization with which to book the trip!
