For the ultimate reef snorkelling adventure, join Three Islands Whale Shark Dive for an unforgettable day of adventure and discovery swimming with the whale sharks of Ningaloo Reef.
The award winning Three Islands Whale Shark Dive (2016, 2015, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009 and 2007 Western Australian Tourism Award Silver and Bronze Medallists) specialise in whale shark snorkel tours between March and July, offering you a relaxed and friendly environment with experienced staff who make each tour a fun, safe and informative experience.
Ningaloo Reef is an incredible aquatic environment filled with an amazing variety of marine life ranging from whale sharks, seasonal humpback whales, manta rays, dugongs, and turtles to brilliantly coloured tropical fish, corals and much more.
From courtesy pick up to drop off the tour includes everything - delicious meals, quality snorkel gear, free photos, passionate experienced staff, exclusive spotter plane to locate whale sharks and importantly, a safety support boat.
Non-swimming observers are also welcome aboard the 17 metre vessel with its spacious shaded deck and marlin board, perfect for aquatic activities.
Three Islands Whale Shark Dive warmly welcomes you aboard for a unique and exciting wildlife interaction with the whale sharks of Ningaloo Reef.
Courtesy return transfers available from all accommodation in Exmouth and en route to Tantabiddi boat ramp or meet at Tantabiddi 8am.
This seasonal tour operates from mid-March to late July. Swimming with a whale shark, the world's biggest fish, on Ningaloo Reef is one of the most exhilarating and unique experiences of a lifetime.
Following courtesy transfer from Exmouth to Ningaloo Reef, you are transported out to the vessel for the commencement of your whale shark adventure. The day begins with a snorkel on the reef where you will see some of the local residents - an amazing variety of brilliantly coloured fish, rays, turtles, perhaps a leopard shark and maybe even a dugong. Re-board the boat for morning tea and a whale shark briefing from your expert staff then, by the time this has finished our spotter plane has begun the search for whale sharks and you are cruising to the outer reef. Once spotted, your whale shark adventure begins!
Join 3 Islands Whale Shark Dive for an encounter to remember.
From the August to November, we will be operating Humpback Interaction Tours on the stunning Ningaloo Reef. These majestic creatures cruise past the West Australian coast each year, providing the perfect opportunity for us to observe them, and if the conditions are right, snorkel alongside for a once in a lifetime experience. Humpback Whales are known to be quite curious creatures, so the interaction is all up to them. They may approach you for a closer look, or they may just pass by. As we can all appreciate with Mother Nature, every day is different and every tour unique. Our Humpback Whale Interaction Tours will be conducted with safety as our first priority, for the whales and for you. While we will do everything we can to ensure a Humpback Whale Interaction, we cannot guarantee.
For those who would like to join the tour but not participate in the whale shark swim, this is the tour for you! Morning reef snorkel available at no extra charge.
