An amazing adventure on board the catamaran. The staff were fabulous and were very attentive to all our wishes. We were lucky enough to have three swims with the whale sharks, saw Humpback whales, reef sharks and a Loggerhead turtle. Would highly recommend this company to anyone

Excellent job by the all girl crew. Had 3 swims with the whale sharks. First 2 were a bit disappointing because of cloudiness and depth and speed of whale shark but the crew kept persisting and sure enough had an exceptional experience with the 3rd. Crew was very organized and

The staff on our trip were amazing, nothing was too much trouble, they looked after us a treat. We saw several Whale Sharks, Humpbacks, Minky Whales, Manta Rays and lots of fish on our snorkel. It was a bit disappointing that we spent most of the trip under motor rather than

Hi there! Thank you for your kind review and wow sounds like you saw everything out there! We can't always guarantee a sail as it is weather permitting and we prioritise getting you to the whalesharks so we apologise you couldn't get to experience more sailing while out on the Ningaloo but we are glad to hear you still had an awesome day on board with us! We definitely are lucky to be working out in such a magical place. Best wishes The Ningaloo Discovery Team
