Exmouth is known as Australia’s Whale Shark tourism hotspot. This town is right on the doorstep of the world-famous Ningaloo Reef, where you can swim alongside whale sharks, manta rays, and humpback whales. As a result, it’s a fantastic place to visit, and any visitor will fall in love with the natural beauty that Ningaloo Reef has to offer.

It takes fifteen hours to drive from Perth to Exmouth. The Whale Shark season runs from early March through the end of July. As a result, the best months to visit Exmouth are between March and October. The months of April through July are ideal for snorkeling with whale sharks.

Whale sharks seen at Ningaloo Reef range in size from four to twelve meters. They traverse the world’s oceans in search of plankton concentrations to feed on, and the Ningaloo Reef is one of the areas where you may see them in big numbers.

It is not only possible to swim with whale sharks, but there are other more methods to interact with these magnificent creatures. On Ningaloo Reef, you may spend the day swimming with whale sharks, manta rays, and tropical fish, followed by a sunset sail, seafood dinner, and sleep by the sounds of the ocean on a luxury Catamaran.  

An Ocean and Soul Safari, a six-day guided yoga retreat, is also available. If you travel on a microlight over the reef, you can also see the whale sharks from above.
