What’s Included in your Whale Shark Tour
- Our experienced, committed team, each focussed on you having an absolutely amazing day out from the start to the finish of your tour
- Our very own spotter plane finding you your very own whale shark to swim with. The plane stays up until you have a good swim with a whale shark, it needs to land for safety reasons, or your tour ends at around 4pm.
- The opportunity to dive on the Ningaloo Reef during your whale shark tour. (We are the only company to offer this to our guests in our efforts to provide the best value and tour experience we possible can.)
- Full day boat-trip, from around 7:30am to 4:30pm
- Proven processes in place to ensure every guest’s safety throughout the day, and a 100% safety record to prove they work.
- In-water support available to every guest, to make you as comfortable and confident in the water as possible. Various flotation devices are also available to assist.
- A spacious, stable and very comfortable vessel specifically designed to maximise customer enjoyment whilst whale sharking.
- Free tour pickup and drop-off out the front of your accommodation in our air-conditioned bus for the transfer from town to whale shark tour boat, and back.
