Have a whale of a time at Ningaloo Reef

World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef is one of the few places on earth where you can swim with whale sharks – the world’s largest fish.

More than 20,800 people visited Ningaloo Reef in 2015 to get up close with the gentle giants of sea, who migrate to WA shores between March and August each year to feed on plankton and krill.

During the season, whale shark swim tours depart daily from Coral Bay and Exmouth, allowing visitors the opportunity to have a face-to-fin encounter with the friendly giants – which can grow up to 18 metres in length.

For the first time in 2016, visitors to Ningaloo Reef will also have the opportunity to swim with humpback whales, who migrate through this region of WA between July and October each year.
