It was an amazing experience to swim with those gentle giants and Kings Tours made every effort that no opportunity of those close encounters were missed. We always felt safe and looked after and the whole trip was well organized. I certainly would go again!!!!

We feel charmed to have had this experience. A combination of perfect weather/water conditions and an enthusiastic, informed, competent crew (who worked so hard the whole time) all came together to make this an unforgettable day. Great boat with an experienced captain and crew --they could not have been any better. Thrilled to have been able to see and do so much in one day.

From the start of the day I knew this was going to be a great day! You get picked up and dropped home at the end of the all day tour. The Magellan boat is beautiful and I can see why the crew are proud to work upon this boat. We were lucky enough to see 3 different whale sharks and plenty of other sea life (during the snorkel areas) on the day. The entire crew (Margot, Zoe, Ben, Brian and Leith) made this a day to remember, it is so wonderful to see people when they genuinely enjoy their work, the crews energy and happy vibes contributed greatly to the day - If we didn't see a whale shark I'm sure we would have still gone home happy as it was just a great day out. The food that is provided is delicious, non stop eating all day gets my tick of approval lol Thanks again for such an amazing experience that most people dream of doing! It really was excellent!! Highly recommend Kings for your Whale Shark Tour!! My only regret is not getting the recipe for the Mexican Salad!

After many weeks of reading reviews and blogs I chose Kings Ningaloo Reef Tours and I can now say I made the correct choice.

I was very nervous about choosing a company as I had been wanting to do the whale shark thing for over 20yrs, so wanted to get it right. Add to that paying for a family of 5 and I really wanted to make the most of my $1400!! Kings IS the tour company to go with.

After watching how it all worked, how the companies interact and how the planes do their thing, I can say that THE most important thing in maximizing your enjoyment is the boat - Kings has the best. I would also happily go out in Ningaloo Blue and Ningaloo Discovery.

Another important factor on the enjoyment list is the crew - Kings ticks all the boxes there with a vibrant crew that added to the atmosphere, including a marine biologist to add to the educational aspect (a thousand questions from the kids) - although watching and talking with others, all tours seem to look for the right crew as you would expect them to.

Food at Kings is better than others I saw. I was talking to the owner / skipper at one point and he commented he preferred to spend more and make sure the quality was high - this was clear in what was presented - even down to quality (and costly) condiments.

But of course the real reason we were out there was the Whale Sharks - and the skipper / crew got us bang on their swim path every time. The big marlin board on the boat also made entry / exit easy (I noticed some other boats lacked in this area).
I also saw how much effort the crew put into getting slower swimmers onto the shark - the extra deck hand was put to good use getting in and helping people keep up (some of those big buggers motor along...)

The photographer/video did a great job and the end product was definitely worth the $60.

As I said at the start - I spent some considerable time researching before booking and I'm glad to say I got it right. I asked the kids what they thought at the end of the day and got "Best holiday ever!!!" in reply...

Thank Roger B
