It's been two days since I went out and I'm still blown away, to swim with the largest shark in the ocean is truly an amazing feeling.

You dive in to 100m deep water you can't see anything then suddenly out of the shadows an 8m whale shark appears, words cannot describe that exact moment, it is something that has to be experienced.

We founds kings though the info packs at the visitors centre and compared to the other 10 or so companies they offered the best value for money! they had the biggest and best boat with (a large dive deck) "marlin deck" that spreads the whole width of the boat at the back, great for getting in and out of the water quickly, their crew were amazing and full of knowledge, very friendly and go out of their way to ensure you have the best experience.

As for value there is only $10 difference in price between the different tour companies but kings offer the biggest boat, an amazing feed all through the day, coffee, milo, cordial, orange juice and water all available, their own spotter plane and a full time photographer/videographer on board to catch all those special moments

Sights, we got to swim with 6 different sharks ranging from 3m - 8m on the day for about 3 hours, by the end I was drained, the sharks can swim a little quick so they really test your physical fitness haha, and when your not with the sharks your snorkeling over the beautiful reefs the Ningaloo has to offer.

Although they can't always guarantee there will be lots of sharks and perfect weather they will still go out of their way to give you the best experience possible and with everything provided all you need to bring is yourself and a towel

5 stars all the way, I will do this trip again! Thank you kings!

We went out with kings on the 1st of april, a monday. We were super lucky to squeeze into the tour the night before and got perfect conditions. I was really impressed with kings, the staff were wonderful, really relaxed but excited. The food was awesome, and available all day, and coffee was ready to go from the moment we stepped onto the boat. Im not the fittest or most energy filled person in the world, but didn't find it exhausting, perfectly do-able. We swam with about 4 or 5 different sharks and because they kept popping up in front of us and we had about 6 or 7 swims, some short, some long. An absolute must do, we really didn't want to spend the money, but it was worth every cent to swim with such a cool majestic creature, id do it again in a heartbeat! And hopefully will again one day, throughly recommend.

We, my friend and I went on the Whaleshark cruise last Friday in March, it was the beginning of the season and the crew aboard was as or even more excited than the customers.. this excitement totally 'infected' everyone aboard and made the atmosphere amazing.
We saw two sharks and had amazing weatherconditions. Calm waters, amazing visibility and calm slow sharks which made it possible for us to keep up with them swimming by their side.
In total we had 5 dives with them and two snorkeltours at the Ningaloo Reef more shallow waters.
We had good morning tea, very nice lunch with lots of freshly prepared salads etc. The crew had a lot of knowledge about the marinelife and seemed very confident and were good at communicating their knowledge. We really felt we learned something new that day. The crew even jumped into the waters with two Tigersharks to prove the point that sharks are not brutal killers but good creatures that are an important link in the eco system.
All in all we are very satisfied. Friendly helpfull crew, lovely clean big boat, good equipment and nice lunch. All these factors just made the experience with the gentle giants even more magical. We would do it again anytime!

I actually made this tour 2 yrs ago, but memories are as fresh as today.. From the start to end of the day it was just full of fun.. The staffs love of their work just shone out and gave out the best vibe..
Extremely competent, friendly and great knowledge of their area and especially of the Whale sharks.. We did 6 drops of 10 mins at a time with the Whale Sharks plus 2 long snorkels one in the morning and one later in the day..
Big highlight was seeing some Humpback Whales and watching them breach.. The Skipper Bill was a fun guy who had the best team working for him... Fantastic music accompanied a delicious buffet lunch, also plenty of drinks and snacks..
Had a cinematographer on board who filmed the whole trip well worth purchasing the dvd...
Would go back in a heart beat to do another tour with Kings!

The whole day was amazing from start to finish. Lovely, friendly staff picked us up and greeted us, pointed out loads of amazing sites on the way to the coast. The boat was great - delicious food and drinks provided. Saw so many whale sharks, we were lucky enough to have one circle around our group for about 5 minutes so everyone got to have a great experience. We also did some humpback whale spotting and some great snorkelling. All in all a really incredible day, we felt really lucky that we chose Kings because from start to finish, it was perfect.
