        A Surreal Experience
        Swimming with Whale Sharks has been on my bucket list & thanks to the amazing Crew of Jazz-2 (our boat for the day) on 12 March 2024 I got to tick that box with this surreal experience It’s incredible to watch these huge fish (one’s we saw on the day varied in length 4 to 8 metres) serenely swim up from deep blue. I can’t rate my experience with Exmouth Dive & Whalesharks Ningaloo more highly. Picked up from Exmouth Wharf in mini bus (we were off a cruise ship), driven through amazing area that is the North West Cape to Ningaloo Reef boat ramp. Taken out to our boat Jazz-2, clear considerably instructions for safety & to optimise our day. All gear in great condition & best ever they gave me prescription lens face mask 👏👏👏 We did swims & had incredible & rare scenario of two whalesharks together. I am a strong swimmer & confident snorkeller but the Crew did amazing job for people that weren’t & they got the opportunity to swim in open ocean The Crew also prepared an amazing lunch. We also saw dolphins, mantra-ray & turtles Do this once in your life, make sure you book Exmouth Dive & Whalesharks Ningaloo

        Make sure the weather is perfect before you go
        We were supposed to go to Blizzard Ridge but the cyclone ruined visibility. But we didn't figure that out until we all went down, swam around a bit, couldn't see anything and then had to move sites. So we wasted some time there, and then went to Bundiggi (sp?), an alternate dive site. Normally, I'm pretty understanding about weather - the crew obviously can't control it - but they had no policy for either partial refunds or rescheduling. Then we found out when we got back that the other dive boat that had the same problems gave everyone a partial refund, so then we all felt crappy for having paid so much for a kind of crappy dive day. And while I loved the dive team, I was mostly annoyed because our dive instructor did not seem experienced enough to handle the problems the group had. One woman clearly had no idea how much weight she needed and the instructor didn't bring enough, and the woman didn't do her buoyancy test properly, so we didn't find out until the dive started that she needed more weight and it ended up messing with the dive. Then the instructor didn't have enough weight and was having to grab live coral to hold herself to the ground. It was... not good. I hate leaving less than five star reviews but for as expensive as this trip was, the experience was really way beneath the cost. I will say the crew were all lovely people, it was just way too expensive for what we actually received unfortunately. They should have issued partial refunds like the other boat or given us a credit for another dive.

        Fantastic whaleshark trip with some lovely snorkelling spots run by an amazing and professional team. Well catered for with snacks and lunch and soft drinks (hot and cold) on tap.

        The best experience and company ever!
        My partner and I recently completed our Open Water PADI Dive Course with Exmouth Dive and truly cannot put into words how incredible our experience was. Yardena (Jordan) was our instructor and her kind heart and fun attitude made the three days of the course both extremely enjoyable and put all nerves at ease. In our ocean dives, we saw reef sharks, mantarays, turtles, whales and so much more! Her adventurous spirit allowed our group to safely adventure the ocean whilst learning valuable skills. Tyler was a fantastic skipper and went out of his way to ensure all of the passengers saw a range of sea life and were comfortable. We cannot recommend Exmouth Dive again! Will be back! Lauren

        Professional skipper and dive leaders . Great food and hospitality.Nothing was a problem and a high standard of safety
        Hi there I have been coming to scuba dive Ningaloo Reef at Exmouth since 1993 and have always gone with EDC and have usually stayed for a week diving flat out living the dream diving non stop because it is such a special part of the world. There have been a few owners over the years and it was always a professional set up hence I stayed loyal and then Mark and Deb took over the company who I used to dive with their company in Fremantle in the mid 2000’s. So some years ago they took over here and have taken the dive company to the next professional level and last Friday the 13th of October 2023 we did 2 dives on Lighthouse Bay and it was one of the best trips I have been on! It’s ok to be 100% honest! The marine life on the way out was awesome with humpbacks 🐋 turtles 🐢 a big olive sea snake 🐍 and this is before we went underwater 😎 Then on the first dive having a big Manta glide right past us at the start of the dive was unbelievable. The whole day was exceptional and what makes it is the professional service from the skipper and crew was second to none 😎👍😎 Definitely was like I said one of the best trips I have done on Ningaloo and that is over 50+ dives over the years coming here. Like to thank the dive crews we had and the captain for the great day and such a great dive boat to go on that’s got all the comfort. Looking forward to coming back soon so a big shout out to a great team as was a great day 😎👍😎🇦🇺

        Best $ value excursion we have been on
        From pick up at our accommodation to drop off everything about the 2 hour cruise was great. Staff personable and knowledgeable, food and drink plentiful and quality selections, but the best part was the constant show put on by the whales. Credit has to go to the skipper for being able to position the vessel for our advantage, and obvious knowledge of where to look for them.

        WOW!! Thoroughly recommend this tour and this organisation!
        What a fabulous end to our stay! Thank you to our skipper and crew for a wonderful evening watching very cooperative hunchback whales as they cavorted near and far all over the bay. Knowledgeable crew were very informative as to breeding and whale behaviours and on the impact humans have had on the species and our cetaceans like them. While keeping distances required from mothers and calves we were still so close to them as they breached, fin slapped, eye hopped and more. And they fed us well also! Just BYO Drink of choice.

        Excellent experience would highly recommend
        What an experience, I went solo for an open water dive course with Exmouth Diving center. My teacher was Mat, he was patient, respectful and really friendly. I had dived once before but still had uncertainty’s about some of the exercises. Mat took the time to make me very comfortable under the ocean and would highly recommend dive center as right from booking to the end was a really great experience and money well spent. The sea life around exmouth is sensational! We even saw a grey nosed shark!

      Wow what a day!, We swam over gorgeous coral with an incredible variety of fish, saw dolphins, a hammerhead shark, and lots of humpback whales. I swam with the whales even though I am a really inexperienced snorkeller and not the strongest swimmer. . A real thrill. This company knows their business. The crew was happy, enthusiastic and caring. When they noticed I was struggling to get on the boat, two of them immediately came over to help and put down a ladder. The food and refreshments were excellent and generous as was the offer of a beer and champagne at the end. This is a must- do day if you are in Exmouth. Make sure you choose this outfit. They are extremely professional and have the client's safety as their priority. I was very nervous but loved my day. Well done Exmouth Diving Centre.

      Highly recommend using this company when visiting Exmouth!! The crew on board were so lovely and brought great energy to the day. They were very cautious with our safety but made sure we had a great time. We were lucky enough to swim with whale sharks and see killer whales / humpback whales in September, plus snorkeling thru some insane reefs
      Such a great day worth every cent , will be doing It again
      Thanks again guys !!

      I've wanted to swim with whale sharks for a long time and this tour finally made it possible! Our spotter plane found them just after lunch and we managed to swim with one whale shark three times. Big shout out to the team - Nick, Ricardo, Linn and Mike -who went absolutely above and beyond with our experience on board, in the water, and pointing out marine life from the boat. We went for two swims beforehand and saw an abundance of fish underwater, including a sting ray and reef shark. Such a good trip, I highly recommend this to anyone looking for marine life interaction.

      We were as impressed with the incredibly enthusiastic people looking after us as we were with the monsters we saw under water. The wildlife obviously could not be orchestrated but it all came together and only in part by chance. The organization on ground, on water and from the air was magnificent. The care and individual personal attention all day out beyond the reef was superb. The team’s dedication for what they do at every turn was felt by all the guests - from assistance delivered to a queazy passenger up to the level of support we received out there in the water. I’d go so far as to say that most of the potential risk connected to amateurs snorkeling in open ocean with sea giants was eliminated by the care and genuine enthusiasm the crew has for their job.
      We saw four humpies. AND two whalesharks (near season end).
      My friends and I are 77 years old. Without this professional dedicated crew we would never have had this amazing experience.

      An incredible day. We swam with whales thanks to the amazing efforts of Shane, Heather, Nick and crew. Being up on the fly bridge listening to Shane and the awesome pilot ( who we never met but can’t thank enough) made us realise what an amazing job they do - finding whales and ensuring the best experience possible. Ningaloo reef is full of wildlife- we also saw hammer head shark, dolphins, flying fish and turtles. See you all next year- we will be back

      All reports suggest you can’t see whale sharks in October at Exmouth. They are all wrong, this was a fantastic experience we swam with 2 whale sharks, I could not hav swam anymore. We also saw a dolphin while snorkeling along with turtles (doing the tango!) & hump back whales from the boat. Furthermore there less people out there because it was off season and the sea was the warmest you could hope for whalesharks = actually this was the best time of the year to do it!

      I will add to above a traveller friend advised me (from speaking to a competitor operator who don’t go in Oct) that only 1 whale shark had been seen from all tours in October with 30 people trying to see them, how wrong he was and how glad I am, I listened to this tour group instead.

      Also want to add the staff that worked on this boat were all excellent, they made the whole experience very enjoyable; the spotters helped to make it even more exciting, the photographer was arguably the number 1 ocean photographer in Exmouth & Michael had a great sense of humour, providing lots of advice on various other things we could do in Exmouth.

      We are all very glad we did this tour, once in a lifetime and well worth it.

      I was in Exmouth for 3 weeks from mid-July 2023, so did lots of different tours. I had the BEST time with Exmouth Dive and Whalesharks Ningaloo on a Whaleshark snorkel and a trip to Muiron Islands too. From how my bookings were handled in the office to the onboard experience, the team is first class! The bar's been set very high by all Exmouth tour operators, so much so that other trips I've made since (in the Canary Islands, for example) don't come close in terms of the experience gained during the adventure. Oh well, even more reason to return to Ningaloo again, again and AGAIN! Thanks guys/gals - I hope you all enjoy a little downtime before the next season lands on top of you!

      What an incredible experience! A definite highlight on our around Oz adventure. The staff were so attentive and supportive with our 10yr old daughter and I watched her confidence soar with each jump in with the whale sharks. A bucket list experience for sure!! Thanks team 🐋🙏

      The staff were excellent in making sure everyone got what they wanted from the trip.
      There was a big age range from children (7and 9) to late 60s as well as experience snorkeling. From very experienced to having snorkel only once before.
      Some people choose to enjoy the trip and did not enter the water.

      The snorkeling spots were great, so many different varieties of fish including sharks. Plus we saw turtles mating.

      The best was the whale shark. We had 4 opportunities to see and swim with it.

      Amazing animal. The staff were very helpful making sure you saw and could swim with it.

      For this trip , you are driven to the site where the boat is anchored offshore and are transported by tender boat.

      This is close to turquoise bay.

      Can highly recommend.

      We first visited Exmouth Dive Centre in 1995 to qualify as divers so 28 years later we decided to return! We swam with Whalesharks, saw so many humpback whales, dived at the Murion Island and on Ningaloo Reef over 9 days. The staff on all of the adventures were outstanding and we had magical times in the water and on the boats. Well done and thank you to everyone from those in the office, the dive staff and the Captains!
