See Whale Sharks in Ningaloo Reef
1,200 kilometers north of the west coast city of Perth, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ningaloo, in Australia, is home to a huge variety of marine life. This, of course, includes whale sharks. Stretching for 300 kilometers, Ningaloo Reef is the country’s biggest coral reef, home to more than 500 different species of fish.
Choose Ningaloo Whalesharks as your operator and you’ll also be able to enjoy whale shark views from the air on their own spotter plane. This company is also reported to be the most generous with swimming time, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities for meeting these graceful giant fish. Base yourself in Exmouth for whale shark tours, as most operators pick up from here.
The best time to sight whale sharks in Ningaloo is between April and July when they come to feed after the coral has spawned. Time your visit for May and you can even join the local Whale Shark Festival in Exmouth, which features live music, good food, and even a fun run!
