Overview

Experience wonder with us! Each day we have the privilege of taking guests from all over the world out to swim with the amazing whalesharks, and or humpback whales and or mant rays, and experience the marine wonderland that is the Ningaloo Reef. We are all about whaleshark tours the way they are meant to be - safe, fun, full of wonder and truly memorable. Our aim is simple : to give each and every one of our customers one of the best tours they have ever been on. Because we own and operate our own spotter plane to find you whalesharks to swim with, for the last 10 years our guests have spent longer actually swimming with a whaleshark than guests on any other tour. (And isn't that why you go on a whaleshark tour in the first place?)

I find the local marine calendars helpful. Google "Ningaloo marine calendar" and a few come up. Looks like you might be in luck with whale sharks, and there also a few other things you have a chance of seeing.
