We were to late to see the whalesharks but Captain Kirk had other things to see and do we got dropped onto a nice piece of reef on the outside and saw some pretty cool stuff. They tried all day to find the whalesharks but they are all gone and the spotter plane eventually had to go home due to... More

We recently did a whale shark tour with Ningaloo Dreaming and it was fantasic! We spent the morning with a snorkle.. loads of beautiful fish. At 10am the spotter plane went up and we were straight onto the whale sharks, we seen 4 in total! Also swam with a manta ray and seen seasnakes, dolphins and a turtle. The crew... More

I think the crew were more interested in socialising than giving good service. I have been on tours in the area on past visits and would go back to the other companies after this day out. Didn't feel like we got any value for our money. Overall the area is amazing so it would never be terrible- just not as... More

My friend and I did the whale shark tour, and it was incredible. We spent a whole fantastic day on the boat and saw 3 whale sharks, a turtle, a manta ray and as we were in the water, a humpback whale and her calf glided by! I was really happy to see that the crew were very respectful of... More

We went to Exmouth in March/April 2013. We called 2 weeks before arriving in Exmouth and the Receptionist was so lovely over the phone. We called around several charter boats but Ningaloo dreaming had the best to offer in terms of price, guarantee and availability. The crew members were lovely, accomodating and attended to each and every customer on the... More

I went out with the original Ningaloo Dreaming crew in 2010 in September and didn't see a whaleshark (bummer - but did swim with manta rays instead). They did give me a voucher valid for three years to try again. The new owners were quick to respond & honour the voucher, so we did a quick trip up from Esperance... More

I chose Ningaloo Reef Dreaming to do my open water dive license while we were on vacation in Western Australia. I chose them because they were very responsive on e-mail and I liked the SSI system of learning that they teach versus PADI. Helpfully, they allowed me to complete all of my book training online -- I just took the... More

From the moment the bus picked my sister and I up from Potshot Resort, I was already impressed and confident that I had made the right decision in choosing Reef Dreaming/Ningaloo Whaleshark Swim. The bus was covered in their iconic indigenous design, and the two staff members were enthusiastic and knowledgeable. After arriving at the boat ramp we went across... More

We have done many tours around the world, but the experience we had on this tour was equal if not the best of any we have done. We have 3 kids, 10, 7 and 5 yo and they all were able to swim with the whalesharks. They were blown away. But it was not just the "blow me away" experience... More
