We chose Ningaloo Reef Dreaming because we went near the end of whaleshark season and they were offering the trip for $160pp (normally around $370 mark) and the other provider in town was charging $285pp (with a no whaleshark - full refund gurantee).
It was a fabulous experience no doubt with the whale sharks and I would definetly do it again (at the discount price as I believe anything above this price is blatant "screw the tourist" price).
The skipper on this tour was very unfriendly and not helpful in the slightest. Two of the crew were informed and friendly and I didnt have any dealings witht he third. There was no interaction between crew and guests during the boat ride out and back and no music played... I had assumed as it was a tourist attraction that they would have ice breaker games and encourage mingling etc on the boat ride.
The boat itself was not in the best condition and I got the impression it was simply run by backpackers who were stationed there during the season.
However, we were there to swim with the whale sharks which we did for about an hour in total which was amazing and definetly recommend it is something you must do when visiting. The cost is questionable as I feel anything over $160 is laughable.....so go at the end of season!
