3 Islands Whale Shark Dive Questions & Answers

Melbourne, Australia

All the comments from Trip Advisor are very positive. My husband & I will be in Exmouth from the start of June 2017 and we would like to swim with whale sharks. Can you please tell me how far in advance I need to book for a trip on about the 3rd of June please.

How many people do you take per trip? Other operators have very good reviews as well and I really have no idea which company to choose. We want the best possible experience as we tick this much anticipated adventure off our bucket list.

Hi Jean,

Thank you for your email regarding our whale shark snorkel tours on the stunning Ningaloo Reef.

We would love to have you aboard for a day of adventure and discovery with the whale sharks and marine life that call Ningaloo home!

We are receiving bookings on a daily basis and therefore it is difficult to predict which dates will book out faster than others as we are busy throughout the season. For Saturday the 3rd of June we are already over half booked. However, I still have a lot of availability for the days prior and after the 3rd June. I would recommend to book in your preferred date as soon as possible. If for any reasons the date would have to be moved then we accommodate changes to our best possible given that we have availability and the newly chosen date.

There is a maximum of 20 passengers on board. These will be split into 2 swimming groups of 10. Therefore, you will have 10 people plus your guide and the photographer in the water whilst swimming with the Whale Shark.

Please see below a little bit more information about our tour and us 
