Addressing Jellyfish Concerns
While some individuals may have concerns about jellyfish, we take every possible step to minimise any need for worry. In many seasons, there have been no serious jellyfish stings reported off the Ningaloo Reef. Although jellyfish stings do present a risk to swimmers in most parts of Northern Australia, the risk on the Ningaloo Reef is significantly lower compared to the Great Barrier Reef. By effectively managing this risk, we ensure your safety.
Our team at Ningaloo Whale Shark n Dive, diligently manages the jellyfish risk to our customers and crew.
Our staff is extensively briefed and trained on recognising symptoms and providing the best treatment. We have well-established processes to handle stings of varying severity. As soon as the risk of jellyfish stings arises, including the Irukandji species, we provide passengers with full-length stinger suits that cover the entire body.
Additionally, we work closely with the Department of Parks and Wildlife, emergency response services, and other whale shark tour operators to ensure a rapid, effective, and professional response to any emergency situation.
Mitigating Seasickness Concerns
Seasickness can be a genuine concern for a minority of our guests, either due to a predisposition to motion sickness or the weather conditions on the day.
Our vessel is specifically designed for maximum stability in the weather conditions along the West Coast of Australia. It offers a comfortable and spacious environment, allowing customers to spread out throughout the day.
