Overview
More
On Ningaloo Discovery's whale shark tours you can snorkel with whale sharks, interact with manta rays, encounter dugongs, turtles, humpback whales, dolphins, amazing colourful tropical fish and coral. These tours run from March - August in the Ningaloo Reef just off Exmouth onboard our luxury sailing catamaran. From August - October we're excited to announce that we’ve been selected operate in the first ever in water Humpback Whale Interaction Tours conducted from the World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Marine Park, from Exmouth. Swimming with a Humpback Whale in their natural environment is an extraordinary experience, one not to be taken for granted, and as such is conducted purely on the whale’s own terms. Humpback Whales are very inquisitive creatures and it is quite possible they will seek interaction with humans and swim close to us. From October - April Charter 1 offer tours and private functions for up to 38 guests around Fremantle, the Swan River, Perth, Carnac and Rottnest onboard a luxurious 12.5m sailing catamaran and comfortable fast 14.5m power vessel. Tours include Champagne Sunset Sails, half and full day Eco/snorkel tours to Carnac and Rottnest Islands, Wildlife interaction (including Sea Lions, Dolphins, Whales and Fur Seals) and live-aboard options.

Hi Liz- thanks for your query. Yes it is often possible to See them Both in one day however usually we don't see many manta rays until later in May. The weather is usually great in April though and so are the Whalesharks.
