Experience the once-in-a-lifetime thrill of swimming with the largest fish in the ocean a whale shark. Swim and walk off the beach to wild fish at arm’s length away at Coral Bay. Snorkel up close with Manta Rays as these amazing creatures glide, roll and feed in nearby Bateman’s Bay. This is the realm of the largest fringing reef on Earth, Ningaloo Reef. A truly magical morning is meeting the friendly bottle-nosed dolphins of Monkey Mia where wild dolphins come to the shore several times a day to interact with people.

The kids and I swam with the sharks in 2014 and would like to repeat the experience this year (see attached image – it was absolutely brilliant). With nothing but driving, it takes a day and a half to get to Ningaloo with many attractions on the way as summarised in this 13 day driving tour of the WA north coast (WA Coral Coast Wildlife.pdf). You may choose to follow your own itinerary, however, I suggest the option below, which allows part of your family to join mid-trip by taking a 2h $321 flight to Ningaloo. In short: camping at Coral Bay and Cape Range National Park, sandboarding in Kalbarri on the way North, and meeting the Dolphins at Monkey Mia on the way home (WA Coral Coast Wildlife.pdf).

Event cost: The paid tours are costly. Estimate a minimum of $3,000+ for a family of four. Cancellation policy: if we get your money back, you get it back. Details of costing in the link - Ningaloo whale sharks 2017.xlsx

Max no of attendees: We need confirmed numbers to proceed with bookings ASAP. Note that this is Easter and school holidays are the most busy time at Ningaloo. 20 people fit on a boat and we can do it over two days. People can be added later subject to availability.
