Frequently Asked Questions

When’s the best time to swim with a Whale Shark?

The great news? You’ve got about a 95% chance of swimming with a whale shark on your very first tour! This awesome success rate holds strong from late March to late July each year.

Considering visiting us outside of peak season?

That’s where the bargains are and your chances are still good. The whale sharks usually show up off Exmouth the beginning of March, and for the last few years have stuck around well into October, and sometimes to mid November.

(Whilst we would LOVE to be able to guarantee the whale shark season each year we unfortunately can’t – these are truly wild animals!)
