What a wonderful day, in one word perfect. I completely agree with all the other rave reviews, they are not exaggerating. From the point when they pick you up at the campsite to the point when they drop you off the staff are friendly, informative, bubbly and cheerful, and 100% intent on making your day great. We even got some... More

An amazing day out on the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park, watching humpbacks & swimming with a whale shark. The crew included a passionate marine biologist (Kayla) who shared her enthusiasm with us! It included a free CD of amazing photos taken on the day by Jana. The friendly crew ensured everyone had a great day & we would highly recommend... More

My friend and I did a whale shark tour with 3 Islands at the very end of July, and the experience surpassed our already high expectations. Mick, Kayla, Kirby, Elle and Amy did a fantastic job of making us feel safe and comfortable as well as dialing up the 'fun-meter'. Not only did we swim with multiple whale sharks but... More

I went on the whale shark dive on 22nd of July and it was a day I will never forget! From the get go the staff were great! super energetic and got us all pumped for the day. I am not a confident swimmer so I was a bit apprehensive but the crew were great and made me feel super... More

Part of my positive experience has to be that we did get to see whale sharks the day I went (although I'll try to focus on the aspects other than seeing the shark as it is out of the company's control). After most of the other tour boats left we were still out there getting a 3rd and 4th swim... More

Fabulous informed and generous staff make this adventure an amazing experience not to be missed. You are in nature where sharks, whales, dolphins etc may be seasonally predictable but not hourly, nor even daily, but this delightful company do their best to find where there are whale sharks and have a wonderful process to ensure all on board can experience...

I went on this tour with my family - my wife and I and our two sons aged 11 and 7. It was quite late in the season, but we managed to have 5 swims with 3 different whale sharks, plus manta rays, and we also saw Orcas hunting a Humpback Whale calf. A very memorable day.

Even though the weather wasn't great for our Whale Shark dive, the staff made sure the day was an incredible adventure, right from the 7am pick up! Nat was our friendly guide, who gave us an entertaining introduction on the bus on the way over, and continued to entertain us for the duration of the day. Coming from an operations... More

We had a fantastic trip with 3 Islands! After 4 days of seeing no whale sharks at all, we were the lucky ones seeing one with them! It was an unforgettable experience! The crew is really friendly and helpful. When I felt a little scared, they stayed close to me and helped me feel more comfortable next to this huge... More
