What You'll Get
Our amazing itinerary for the day:
-From 7:45am, pick up from Exmouth to the Windcheetah catamaran where you will be greeted and fitted with snorkeling gear
-Snorkel in the crystal clear waters of Ningaloo Reef at one of our snorkel spots in the lagoon. You will see corals and colorful fish, sometimes even turtles and rays! Take this time to ask questions, get snorkeling tips, make sure your gear fits and practice getting on and off the boat before your whale swim.
-Enjoy morning tea as our plane gets searching for Humpback Whales. Once located you will get nice views with the boat to observe these gentle giants as they cruise the reef. The pilot, skipper and crew will asses the whales behavior and then whale swimming guests will be directed to put their snorkel gear on and we will do our best to get you interacting with them in the water! Observers will watch the action from the comfort of the Windcheetah's bow. If these whales are not viable to swim with, our pilot will find us more!
-After you have spent as much time as possible with the Humpback Whales you will enjoy a delicious buffet lunch as we cruise the reef in search of any other wildlife. Manta Rays, Dolphins, Whale Sharks, Turtles and anything else that may be around.
-Now you'll head back inside the turquoise blue lagoon and anchor at a new spot on the reef for another snorkel. Weather and time permitting try our Stand Up Paddle Board or Glass Bottom Kayak during the afternoon snorkel for a different view.
-Relax with some afternoon tea and a glass of sparkling wine on our way back to shore.
-The experience lives on as you will be provided access to all the photos of the day taken by our professional photographer free of charge!!!
