Take the plunge and go swimming with humpback whales around Ningaloo Reef on this full day tour. You’ll have the opportunity to snorkel the reef and jump in with humpback whales for the thrill of a lifetime.
This tour is part of the first swimming with humpback whales trials on the West Coast of Australia, and it’s a completely unique experience. Your day begins with a pick up from your accommodation and delicious coffee and a briefing on board the boat. Then you’ll head out to Ningaloo Reef hotspots for a morning snorkelling session.
Every year over 30,000 humpback whales pass through Ningaloo Reef on their migration path and the tour operators use a spotter plane to find a humpback or pod of humpback whales that are resting, as the slow-moving whales are most apt to interacting with swimmers. Getting in the water with these gentle giants is an unforgettable adventure.
You might even be able to swim with whale sharks too if it’s early in the whale season and the animals are willing to join in. After swimming with the humpback whales you’ll refuel with a delicious buffet-style lunch and drinks, then head to another snorkelling spot on Ningaloo Reef if there’s time.
