Attraction details
Owner description: Whale Shark and Eco Snorkeling Tours. From April - July join us onboard the Magellan for a full day of snorkelling over coral reefs and swimming with the Majestic Whale shark, the King of the Sea. In season we may even be lucky enough to see Manta Rays, Humpback Whales, Turtles and rays and much more. From August we offer a Whale shark / Humpback Whale Eco Tour. Again a full day packed with adventure as we explore the Ningaloo Reef and if conditions are safe to do so we'll even get into the water to swim with Humpback Whales.

the staff were fantastic. just a shame that were put in groups of 10 to swim with the whale sharks (omg, the staff really have the patience of a saint!!). a fair amount of swimming was required, wish i was a bit fitter :) Had a great day out and felt lucky to experience it all.

Thank you redtweak for your review. While reducing each group size is an option, this may also increase the possibility that passengers on board miss out on the opportunity to swim with a whale shark as its behaviour may cause it to dive or we reach our maximum interaction time with an individual whale shark. The maximum of ten swimmers with a whale shark is a licence condition all operators adhere to. We also must not exceed a time limit of 1hr with an individual whale shark. Our guides are on hand with each group to ensure that passengers get the best possible interaction they can. If your swim doesn't provide you with a good look at the whale shark or as you say , fitness levels are not where you'd like them, just a brief mention to the guides for the next swim and they will literally guide you into the best position possible to see the gentle giant of Ningaloo Reef.

We had a stunning day out with Kings, we were lucky enough to get great weather and had incredible interactions in the water with Whale sharks, Humpbacks and Mantas. The boat, skipper and crew were fantastic - professional, safe, informative and a lot of fun to spend the day with!

We would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to visit the Ningaloo reef!

The crew were exceptional and really focused on providing us with the best experience taking us into the water multiple times to ensure we saw as much as possible. We saw whale sharks, humpback whale and baby, dolphins, dugongs and turtles as well as the coral bommies. The equipment was great and we were well fed and watered. Thank you Kings for a magical experience.

It’s really confusing to pick a company/tour when wanting to swim with Whale sharks and/or whales as there is so many competitors and all advertising to be the best for various reasons. I was apprehensive to book this ecotour as some advertising said to book a specialised whale shark swim for beat chance of encounter, rather then an eco tour with swim which is less specialised. However, while I can’t compare to others as I haven’t been on any others in exmouth, Kings was recommended to me by word of mouth from locals, and it was an incredible day. We were lucky to swim with whlale shark and humpback whales. The crew were great, and the boat is super comfortable. Only other one I went on was in Coral Bay for a manta swim (the dive shop one) and if I compared to that operation is miles above in every way! Thanks for the unforgettable day, hope to be back next year!

Thank you Hanako for your review. We do understand it can be confusing with so many operators offering Whale shark tours, we are very lucky in Exmouth to have such quality experiences and operators available for our visitors. We hope that our personalised service, 30 years of experience, outstanding trained staff and luxurious boat and the testimony of our previous passengers hold us above the rest. If the opportunity arises to interact with both Whale sharks and Humpback Whales then yes, we are more than happy to offer this experience to our passengers. So happy to read that you were able to experience this on the day of your tour. Thank you for choosing Kings Ningaloo Reef Tours and for your recommendations.
