Whale Shark Swim by Catamaran in Shoulder Season

Ningaloo Discovery

Select Option


The Ningaloo Reef is alive with marine wildlife. Join your group for a 9 hour day out on “Windcheetah”, a 60ft sailing catamaran as you set sail through the shallow turquoise lagoons and along the back of the stunning Ningaloo Reef whilst stopping to take advantage of whatever wildlife comes our way. Your day includes the opportunity to snorkel the reef, view Humpback Whales, and look for turtles, dolphins and dugongs. Morning tea, a buffet lunch, and afternoon tea are provided during the day.   If the opportunity presents itself to swim with a Humpback Whale or Whale Shark, the option is there to upgrade on-board for a "Humpback Whale/Whale Shark Swim" (additional $50p.p fee applies). If you encounter Manta Rays, there may also be an option to swim with these majestic creatures at no extra charge.

What You'll Get

At 7:45am, you will be picked up from your accommodation and taken to the Windcheetah sailing catamaran where you will be greeted by your friendly crew and fitted with masks, snorkels, fins and wetsuits. Moments later, snorkel in the crystal clear waters of Ningaloo Reef in the sheltered lagoon. You will see corals, colorful fish, and sometimes even turtles and rays! Take this time to ask questions, get snorkeling tips, make sure your that your gear fits, and practice getting on and off the boat before swimming with marine life.

Enjoy morning tea as a plane is searching for marine life in the area.  The boat will get you as close as possible to observe anything the pilot finds.

Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch as you cruise the reef in search of any other wildlife.  Next, head back inside the turquoise blue lagoon and anchor up for another snorkel. Weather and time permitting try a stand up paddle board or glass bottom kayak during the afternoon snorkel.  Relax with afternoon tea and a glass of sparkling wine on our way back to shore. The experience lives on as you will be provided all the photos of the day taken by our professional photographer free of charge!
