Humpback Whale Swimming
August 1st until the end of November you are able to enter the water and swim with the whales while they are relaxed, with a maximum group of 7 swimmers plus a guide & Videographer in the water at a time, while non-swimming guests observe the whales the boat maneuvering as close as 75 meters! This is closer than any other whale watching cruise in Australia. This will give you a very special view for non-swimmers to enjoy the whales as they display their natural behaviours.
In the Water –
Under the watch of the tour guides you, the swimmers, are able to enter the water and approach the Humpback Whale. We have strict distance guidelines and safety is paramount in these very special encounters. The whales are curious and are allowed to approach within 15 metres giving you a unique close encounter.
Before entering the water near a whale, swimmers will be required to take a quick in water swimming assessment as required by the license conditions. You must be physically fit, over 13 years old, and have snorkeled within the past 6 months to be eligible to enter the water with a whale.

Whale watch participants
Whale watchers will experience a snorkel on the beautiful Ningaloo Reef and will observe the Humpback whales from the boat, closer than any other whale watching tour. If there are swimming spots still available you may be permitted to upgrade on the day of the tour.
Please note that whales are completely wild and we do not disrupt their natural behaviours in any way. For this reason we cannot fully guarantee that all swimming guests will experience an in water interaction.
