Snorkel at various reef spots and then let our spotter plane, skipper and snorkel guides help you to have an in-water experience with a humpback whale.
Don’t just see the whales, swim with them! A bucket list opportunity awaits with Ningaloo Reef, who are one of only a few organisations licensed to offer a swimming experience with Humpback Whales. On this full day tour, guests will journey into the waters of Ningaloo Marine Park, a major part of the whales’ migratory route, where in 2016, an estimated 30,000 whales passed through and rested.
The 60ft sailing catamaran allows for 360-degree viewing with plenty of space to relax on lounge beds and bow nets, while a dedicated spotter plane searches and directs the captain to pods of whales or other marine wildlife. When a pod of whales is located, guests can enjoy watching them from within the boat while the experienced crew assess their behaviour according to Department of Wildlife regulations.
The safety of guests and respect for the whales is a top priority so if conditions aren’t right the search will continue for more whales, but in most cases these creatures will be interactive, inquisitive and playful. The chance to swim with Humpback Whales in the wild is a moving experience and the tour operators will do everything in their power to see guests swimming beside a Humpback Whale. With an intimate group of 7, plus a guide, you’ll encounter the whales like never before!
