Swim with the Humpback Whales near Ningaloo Reef on this full day cruise departing Exmouth. Snorkel at various reef spots and then let our spotter plane, skipper and snorkel guides help you to have an in water experience with a humpback whale.
This is most definitely a once in a life time experience!
With only a handful of locations licensed around the world to offer this experiences, this is the first time Ningaloo Reef has been selected to offer the opportunity to swim with Humpback Whales.
The Ningaloo Marine Park is recognised as one of the major migratory routes for these magnificent creatures on their annual journey from Antarctica to the Kimberley region with an estimated 30,000 passing by and resting in the sheltered waters in 2016.
This experience offers guests a Humpback Whale experience on-board a very stable, spacious 60ft sailing catamaran, which provides a 360-degree viewing platform and the opportunity to lounge and relax on the comfortable day beds, bow nets and various seating spots while soaking up and enjoying the beauty of the Ningaloo Marine Park and all the amazing wildlife you may encounter. With the use of an exclusive spotter plane, your pilot will direct your skipper to pods of whales and any other marine life spotted from above. Once a pod of whales is located, you will enjoy observing them from the vessel while the crew assess if you can try to swim with them based on their behaviour and Department of Wildlife regulations. If not, the plane and skipper will search for more!!
Swimming with a Humpback Whale in their natural environment is an extraordinary life changing experience, one not to be taken for granted, and as such is conducted with the utmost respect to the whales. Each day presents a unique experience, and some whales are more interactive than others. Humpback Whales are very inquisitive creatures and it is quite possible they will seek interaction with humans and swim close to us. Ningaloo Discovery will do absolutely everything possible to have guests swimming in the water with a Humpback Whale! The crew of Ningaloo Discovery are very experience in reading the whales behaviour and interaction viability. Your small group of 7 and your guide will slide into the water and aim to swim with a majestic Humpback Whale, this is truly a once in a lifetime experience.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a seasonal experience available from August to October only.
Children must be accompanied by a swimming adult.
Cruise departures are subject to weather conditions.
Please bring swimwear, towel, hat and warm clothes.
This experience takes place on Ningaloo Reef, departing Exmouth, WA.

We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
