Summer Eco (Whale Shark) Tour on Sailing Catamaran
- Duration: 7 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Exmouth, WA
- Product code: PW0FJ5
Whale Sharks are frequent visitors to the Ningaloo Reef, even after the official Whale Shark season is over. This year we are extending our Eco Tours into the summer months to see just how long they stick around for!
This means that on board our Summer Eco Tours which run from November to December, whilst we can’t guarantee any Whale Shark swims, guests will have the opportunity to swim with the one if sighted by our spotter plane. The summer is also when large numbers of turtles come to the Ningaloo to breed and lay their eggs, so we will be on the look out for them too!
We will set off early to try and get the best of the day before the sea breeze comes in, to explore the sheltered lagoon and its countless snorkeling sites home to a whole host of beautiful corals, tropical reef fish, turtles, rays and dolphins. We will send our pilot up for a couple of hours to check if there are any Whale Sharks around and venture out onto the back of the reef to have a swim if one pops up.
We offer guests the most stable and comfortable viewing platforms to view and interact with this wildlife from the decks of our 60ft luxuriously appointed sailing catamaran. Join us for a day out on “Windcheetah” as we set sail through the shallow turquoise lagoons and along the back of the stunning Ningaloo Reef whilst stopping to take advantage of whatever spectacular wildlife comes our way.Your day includes the opportunity to snorkel the reef, spot turtles, dolphins and mantas. If the opportunity presents itself to swim with a Whale Shark the option is there to upgrade onboard on the day for an additional "Whale Shark Swim Fee" of $50 cash per person.
We also might encounter the curious and interactive Manta Rays and do our best to get you in for a swim with these inquisitive and majestic creatures at no extra charge.
Weather and time permitting try your hand at one of our Stand Up paddle Boards or a kayak during the afternoon snorkel for a different view of the reef.
