There is over 30000 humpbacks passing our Ningaloo every year and they are all in different stages of their journey. Our aim is to use our spotter plane to find a humpback or a pod of humpback whales that are just resting and enjoying a break, these slow moving whales are now more likely to be interested in interacting with our swimmers and providing that breath taking experience you will never forget.
There will be only 5 swimmers in the water at any one time along with our guide and photographer to capture this truly amazing event.
Our day will start with you being picked up and delivered to our beautiful boat Aliikai - 65ft of luxury with an enormous extended fly bridge for viewing, being a purpose built dive vessel she has easy access to and from the water. Once on board we start with a barista made coffee, a briefing and then head out to our morning snorkel spot. People wanting to swim with the humpbacks will need to be able to demonstrate a reasonable ability to swim and be over the age of 13. Anyone just wanting to join for the day as an observer or snorkel in only the morning and afternoon snorkels doesn't have to have the same level of ability as a humpback whale swimmer.
After our morning snorkel the plane will search for a resting pod and we will make our way out to spend some time with these guys and see if they are interested in swimming with us. When the humpback swimming is finished for the day we will serve a full lunch with all drinks provided and then if time permits move into one of our favourite snorkelling spots for another swim. We will have you back in Exmouth later in the afternoon.
