Ningaloo Reef with Whale Shark Cruise

Duration
3 Days
Prices From:
US$ 596

Escape to the west coast of Australia and the marine wonders of the Ningaloo Reef. Explore this virtually-untouched 260km-long coral reef and swim alongside whale sharks, the largest fish in the sea.


This 3-day stay takes you into the waters of the Ningaloo Reef to swim with whale sharks and explore one of the world’s largest coral systems.

Exmouth is your ideal gateway to Australia’s western coast and the wonders of the Ningaloo Reef. The Ningaloo Reef is Australia’s largest fringing coral reef, running 260 kilometres between Exmouth and Quobba Station. Staying at Mantarays Ningaloo Beach Resort, you’ll enjoy an award-winning restaurant, committed eco-friendly service, and one of 68 comfortable rooms as you explore the reef and search for whale sharks.

While the entirety of the Ningaloo Reef is a wonder worth exploring, the highlight of your trip to Western Australia will be an encounter with whale sharks, the largest fish in the sea. Your cruise vessel is paired with a spotting aircraft that tracks the sharks from high above, ensuring that your crew is always in the know as to the sharks’ locations and the best spots to swim alongside these gentle giants. Gear up alongside a qualified guide and head into the water for a close encounter with the sharks, having your exploits documented by an underwater videographer who’ll supply you with a video of your encounter at the end of the day. Afterwards, snorkel through Ningaloo Marine Park, admiring the coral reefs and the schools of tropical fish that call the reef home.
