Fantastic experience, swam with 2 whale sharks at the same time as well as all the beauty of the coral and reef life including turtles, rays and exotic fish . The crew were a hoot and took us a long way south to see an aggregation which their spotter plane found. Ended up having a very long swim with 2... More

The heading above is actually my description of downtown Exmouth. Fortunately, the whale shark dive is such a wonderful experience that the surrounding countryside doesn't really matter. We booked with 3 Islands because they seem to be the only operator with their own spotter plane. Logically, we assumed that, if the other tour groups are sharing a plane, they'll all... More

We travelled to Ningaloo for the express purpose of swimming with the Whalesharks. We did 3 trips with different companies, & although they were all great 3 Islands was the best of all. From the humour of the staff, to the well equipped boat, the equipment, the food - all excellent. 3 Islands though managed THE best Whalesharks of the... More

Did a lot of research prior to booking and seemed that 3 Islands were the best company to use. We were not disappointed. What a fantastic day. The crew were outstanding - we particularly enjoyed the mid morning puppet show. They did everything in their power to ensure we had the best experience possible. They were funny, welcoming and enthusiastic... More

We can not speak highly enough of our experience with the team at 3 Islands Whale Shark Dive a couple of weeks back. From the morning pick-up, the drive there, the snorkelling, the food, the staff and of course the highlight act, the Whale Sharks - everything was perfect! The staff were friendly, approachable and knowledgeable and everything about the... More

The team here are amazing, a real highlight of the trip. Food supplied on-board is plentiful and tasty. This company is the only one in Exmouth that has the use of a plane to help spot the sharks, meaning you spend less time on the boat and more time in the water. The moment you see your first whale shark... More

We recently went snorkelling with 3 Islands for my husbands' 40th - fulfilling a dream several years in the making. As a group of seven gay guys, sadly you sometimes think you might be treated as an annoyance for any tour operator though this was definitely not the case. The crew were amazing - friendly, humourous and extremely competent. There... More
