The first whale sharks of the season have been spotted basking in the waters of Ningaloo Reef, and we sure are excited that they’re starting to show their faces!
Whale shark tours start from Sunday 1 March in both Coral Bay and Exmouth, and it’s recommended to book in advance for this once in a lifetime experience to avoid disappointment. Here at Dive in Australia we work with a number of operators running daily trips to swim with the whale sharks. Let us help you plan an itinerary to make sure you include also amazing dive sites on Ningaloo Reef.
Although we can not sell you flights we hear there are cheap flights to Exmouth with Qantas form Perth. Once in Exmouth you should think about hiring a car to get around if your planning on spending a few days exploring the area. Coral Bay is only a two hour drive South of Exmouth so very easy to get there if you have your own transport. There is amazing scenery to hike like the grandiose landscapes of the Cape Range National Park. Covering more than 50,000 hectares, the ruggedly beautiful Cape Range National Park features breathtaking canyons, limestone ranges and 50 kilometres of unspoiled coastline as well as stunning Yardie Creek.
Wildlife such as emus, wallaroos, red kangaroos, dingoes, echidnas and a variety of birds and reptiles are sighted daily. The park comes alive with wildflowers in winter and boasts 630 species of plants and wildflowers.
Don’t just say you’ll do it, make it really happen! Now is the time to start researching and booking your tours. Let’s go there!
