snorkel with whale sharks - ningaloo reef

This SNORKEL WITH WHALE SHARKS adventure is like none other.

At Ningaloo Reef you will get to experience swimming with the largest fish in the ocean while expert tour guides instruct you on how to interact with the majestic whale shark.

 

DETAILS OF THIS EXPERIENCE

Nothing humbles a human more than being in the presence of Nature’s greatness. For this reason, this activity grants you the opportunity to be awed.

Before the whale shark snorkelling begins a team will fly out and search for the whale sharks overhead. This ensures that our team knows the whale shark whereabouts and can strategically boat travellers out without the possibility of disturbing the shark’s natural movements. Then the fun begins!

You will spend the day frolicking with the ocean’s biggest and cuddliest fish. Our expert team will brief you on the sharks’ behaviour and feeding patterns. You will also learn how to approach these animals in order to ensure optimal playing time!

WILDTHENTIC'S TRAVELLER TESTIMONIAL

Best experience after 5 months in Australia.

Very friendly staff and very passionate. We swam with two whale sharks and very long time with one of them. Swimming with whale sharks is amazing but with these people it was even better. After that we were snorkelling in a very nice coral, in fact, didn’t want to leave from there. They provide you lunch, meal and a beer or champagne jut at the end.

We are really happy to have this experience with them!"
