This product is only available to RedBalloon customers
Swimming with Whale Sharks is an experience of a lifetime! Set in the perpetually sunny north-west coast of Western Australia, Ningaloo is a dream come true for snorkel lovers, eco enthusiasts and adventurists alike. With 260km of fringing coral reef it is one of those idyllic picture postcard locations where you can walk straight off the white sandy beaches into glistening turquoise waters and find yourself floating above an underwater wonderland. On the morning of your experience you will be collected from your accommodation and driven to meet the boat and crew. You will be fitted for fins, mask and wetsuit on board, ensuring you are ready to plunge into the water as soon as you reach the first snorkel site of the day. With calm waters on the surface, below is a hive of activity with so much to feast your eyes on. Discover an abundance of coral, tropical fish, turtles, manta rays and dugongs. Your guides will even point out things you may otherwise miss so keep your eyes peeled.
When a Whale Shark has been sighted by plane spotters overhead, it’s all systems go! Your skipper will head in the direction of the shark where you will slip back into the waters and swim alongside these enormous, harmless creatures; an unforgettable feeling and experience. Their sheer size and gentle nature is mesmerizing!
A delicious lunch will be served on board as well as a celebratory glass of bubbly and Whale Shark swimmer certificate. You will have another opportunity to explore the wondrous aquatic playground in the afternoon where you can make use of the Kayaks or Paddle Boards for a totally different vantage point of Ningaloo.
