1 Day Ningaloo Whaleshark & Manta Ray Explorer Tour from  Exmouth

Adults from $150


Experience wonder as you swim alongside a Ningaloo Whaleshark – the biggest fish in the world.

​Option A: Whaleshark Tour – Come with us and experience Exmouth’s best Whale Shark Tour. Join Ningaloo Whaleshark Swim’s team of committed, fun-loving and friendly professionals for a day out on the Ningaloo Reef and experience wonder for yourself. Marvel at the size, grace and beauty of the biggest fish in the world as you swim alongside it in the pristine waters of the Ningaloo Marine Park. It’s ok to pinch yourself when you’re swimming alongside a whale shark too – we still do! That huge whale shark right next to you is actually real, and you are actually doing this crazy thing.

Option B: Manta Ray Tour – Be awed by the eagle of the sea, the amazing manta rays (from May to August). You don’t need to do a whaleshark tour to swim with the mantas of the Ningaloo! Our spotter plane is up and looking for mantas for us to swim with.

Option C: Ningaloo Explorer Tour – Join us four our Ningaloo Explorer tour, run from March to September throughout our season and cruise out into the big blue of the Ningaloo to find the very best sealife for us to interact with, swim with and/or observe. We’d love to take you out into the amazing Ningaloo Reef and to share our knowledge of the whale sharks, the Ningaloo Reef and its inhabitants, our indigenous Australians, and the absolutely fascinating history of the region in which we operate. Please note that our tour includes two free snorkels on the Ningaloo Reef for everyone. Whilst only swimmers can swim with a whaleshark, observers may be able to upgrade to swimmers on the day if there are spare swimms< p=””>
