    What to Expect
    Humpback whales are curious by nature and at times seek interaction with humans. All interactions are on the whales terms and in accordance with our licence conditions. We restrict group sizes to a maximum of up to 7 passengers per group and a maximum of 3 groups. We use the best equipment and resources to find and interact with these underwater giants, but ultimately the quality and duration of the swim is solely dependent on the whales willingness to be apart of our tour. All swimmers MUST be a confident snorkeler, competent swimmer and over the age of 13. A qualified snorkel guide accompanies each group of up to 7, whilst a company photographer takes photos of the Humpback Whales and other marine life sited throughout the day. These photos are then given as a gift to you.There is also opportunity to search for Turtles, Dolphins, Dugong, Rays, Sea Birds and everything else! A variety of delicious, gourmet menu choices are also available throughout the day with all dietary requirements catered for with notice. Let the Ocean Eco Adventures team guide you through the adventure of a lifetime on the Humpback Whale swim!

    • Swimming with Humpback Whales is a unique experience that requires the utmost regard for passenger safety. Whale swimming can be a potentially dangerous activity and is extremely condition dependant, poor conditions may make risks to swimmers unmanageable. Swimming with whales will only be attempted if the conditions such as visibility and sea state will allow the safest interaction possible. Your safety is our first priority and we do not take our responsibly as an operator lightly. Due to the fact that the Whale swim tour is extremely condition dependant we ask for your understanding should the tour need to be rescheduled, delayed or cancelled. It is also important to understand that conditions can change rapidly on tour. Ocean Eco Adventures always attempts to act in your best interests and we endeavour to keep in contact with you as best as we can. Please keep your details such as phone, email and accommodation in Exmouth up-to-date with us. It is also helpful if you check in with us one or two days prior to your tour, in case we have not been able to advise you of any potential changes.
