Ningaloo Whale Shark n Dive’s
Whale Shark Shoulder Season 2024 & 2025

Shoulder Season Start Dates: 31st of July

The Ningaloo Reef is home to a thriving population of whale sharks, and each year, these gentle giants are found in the Ningaloo Reef area from around March to October. However, in recent years, we have noticed an increase in the number of whale sharks being sighted during the shoulder season periods.

The exact timing of their migration away from Ningaloo is closely tied to the natural environmental factors influenced by Mother Nature.

The movement of the whale sharks appears to be related to the La Niña and El Niño currents, which affect the availability of their food sources.

As a result, the start of Ningaloo Whale Shark n Dive’s Shoulder Season based on the current seasonal environmental conditions. We have determined to start our Eco tours and shoulder season on the 15th of July.
