Jump aboard a luxury sailing catamaran, for 360-degree views, over Ningaloo. A truly wild experience, swimming with a Humpback Whale and is conducted purely on the whale’s own terms.

Humpback Whales are notoriously curious, so it is very possible they'll be interested in an interaction, but they may also swim away. For this reason, the tour is conducted as a Whale Watching Tour, with the possibility to upgrade to a Whale Swimming Tour, but either way, you get close up to these amazing creatures. If a whale shark is spotted, you can upgrade to swim with our spotty friends as well. (A one off upgrade fee of $90 applies to swim with either Humpback Whales or Whale Sharks, whether you swim with one or both).
