Whale shark season is usually from late March to July following the mass spawning of coral in the Ningaloo Marine Park.
As we are relying on Mother Nature, we are unable to guarantee that you will see a whale shark on your tour. However we do guarantee that our greatest efforts will be made to ensure you have a wonderful day.
We have a spotter plane searching for whale sharks to increase sightings. If you do not see a whale shark on your first tour we will offer you a free repeat on our next available tour (this offer does not apply to observers, is non transferable and is open for two years after your first trip. Government fees apply for non-sighting repeat tour tickets booked in a new calendar year). Alternatively you can join us on our ultimate Marine Ecotour for free.
Not only do you get the opportunity to swim with the Whale Sharks, you also get to snorkel on the reef, where you might see things like turtles, reef sharks, dugongs, rays, hundreds of fish species and coral.
Please keep in mind that this is an open ocean snorkeling adventure of a lifetime, so confidence in the water will increase your enjoyment on the tour.
(Minimum age to swim with whale sharks is six years.)
