Best Time to Swim With Whale Sharks

The largest fish in the world assemble around the Reef of Ningaloo every year from March to August. Those are the whale sharks!  The ability to snorkel with these gentle giants is the chance for a lifetime and the worldwide tourist to the Ningaloo Area during the whale shark season.

Each year from 15th March to the end of August, Ningaloo Whalesharks n Dive operates whale shark tours covering the whole whale shark season in Exmouth, where we are frequently swimming with whale sharks at most of these periods. The exception is poor weather, circumstances outside our control and the need for a minimum of passengers to tour a given day. Every day of the season we do operate.

Our purpose-built dive vessel HERON CHARTERS perfectly accommodates our guests with her 2 showers, toilet/ change room, 2 big dive ladders and comfortable seating for everybody. She has been fitted with all new dive equipment including underwater scooters and 2 sup boards for your enjoyment.
