    Come snorkel with the biggest fish in the sea! Join us for a full day tour on one of our big stable boats for a day of fun on the World Heritage Ningaloo Reef. We use spotter planes to locate the whalesharks as they are in the wild, not fed by us to attract them. Then it’s time to get in with our experienced guides who will lead you on the greatest adventure of a lifetime! On board our marine biologist will teach you all about whalesharks and reef ecology. You will also have the chance to see Manta Rays, Humpbacks, Dugongs and dolphins. Our videographer will take great video of the day – yours free to keep! We offer a good swim guarantee, and one free repeat tour per paying passenger in the unlikely event that we do not sight a whaleshark. Snacks, buffet lunch & refreshments throughout the day. Available daily 7am-4.30pm March to early August.

Our family of seven adults did 3 seperate tours. Whale sharks, Murion Islands and the outer reef dive trip. All were professionally run, conducted with good humour and whilst safety was paramount, you did not feel like you were being constrained. The boats are very comfortable and the food was fresh and plentiful. The day we went to Murion islands was quite rough and wet on the way out but lovely on the way back (if you do get seasick or are unsure if you do, listen to the crew and take your seasick tablets!)

Every time we entered the water, the experience was mind blowing to say the least. The whale sharks are majestic, the manta rays, elegant, the seas snakes, incredible, the turtles graceful, fish life, coral and sponges diverse and vibrant- this is a very special part of the world- let’s hope the sudden growth in domestic travel is managed appropriately.

We cannot recommend Exmouth Dive and Whalesharks highly enough! Congratulations Mark and Debbie for providing such a fantastic business serviced by enthusiastic caring and professional staff and well maintained equipment.

The day was AMAZING!! We saw several Whaleshark's & it is every bit as magical as you think it will be. There were many Humpbacks to see as well - breaching & jumping from the ocean. Two stops for snorkelling was also great - colourful fishes everywhere.

The crew were fantastic: Tibo was our Captain & expertly steered us around finding us Whaleshark's, dropping & picking us up from the ocean & keeping us safe, Ester was in charge of our group in the water & she was reassuring, knowledgable & fun, Luciano & his "Go Go Go" will be stuck in my brain forever, Kate was so helpful getting us in & out of wetsuits (not an easy task) & Henry took beautiful photos for us to remember the day.

Would not hesitate to book with this Company again!!

Highly recommend Exmouth Dive and Whalesharks! My family and I did multiple tours - diving and whalesharks. All experiences exceeded our expectations and every single one of the staff members were so professional, fun, knowledgeable and helpful. The company is by far the best diving/tour company I have ever experienced.

We have previously twice swam with the whale sharks at Exmouth, once ~25 years ago and again about 15 years ago with Exmouth Diving. On both occasions the boat would only drop swimmers in no more than twice on the same whale shark and we saw a variety of sizes of sharks. On this trip we were dropped 5 times on the same small shark and that was the extent of the day out.
We also did a diving day before the tour. Whilst the trip and the people were good, the toilet wasn't working

We travel to Exmouth each year for the past 10 years and always use EDC as our go to people. The staff are so so helpful in the office as well as on the water. We always feel completely safe and cared for, they are extremely accommodating with our young son Luca whilst my husband, teenage son and I dive. The amazing places they take us to include Muiron Islands, West side outside the Ningaloo Reef and numerous other diving spots on the Reef. Their enthusiasm never waivers in all these years.....a special shout out to Tibo, Matt Heather Tash 🙏🏻🐢

1/08: First boat day, we saw none whale shark. It’s okay we knew this is the end of the season. BUT we have a friend who was on the other boat( other company) and she swam with whale shark ! So I don’t know why us we haven’t see the whale shark ?!

7/08: 2nd boat trip and the boat decides to return early ( without see the whale shark) because there was too much wind, and the other boats stayed.

It’s good to know the voucher is personal, we can’t sell it !

Hi, we do everything possible to get you a swim with a whaleshark. We work with all of the other boats & as the whalesharks do not stay on the surface forever, they dive deep. On the day you were out 99% of the boats did not see a whaleshark. One other boat had a very small glimpse of a whaleshark deep underwater. We give you a repeat voucher to come again. You chose to use it straight away, & unfortunately was on a rough day. A wiser thing would have been to come back earlier in the season. You ended up seeing whales, Manta rays & Orca's, lots of snorkelling too.

What a Bucket List Day snorkeling with 3 a whale sharks & the team on board hugged me as I cried. Knowing I was being guided by my beautiful husband who recently died & had sent me on a journey to find my happy! Neither he, nor the team disappointed me & to have a gentle giant turning to face me was remarkable. The team calmly helped us keep our distance & not scare them off.
Never! To be forgotten!

What a fantastic experience this was!

Though we came quite late in the season, we were very lucky enough to be able to swim with a juvenile whale shark, who was very accommodating to our presence.

We had originally been booked with another company, but they contacted us a day before to let us know they'd closed for the season, so transferred us onto Exmouth Dive. The staff and crew were absolutely fantastic! Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

Would highly recommend!

The 2nd time we went in the ocean... while swimming to view a whale shark the cameraman turned and swung the camera hitting me in the head. Not too much blood but a nasty headache so wasnt able to join for 3 more whale shark swims while I waited for the panadol to kick in.
While I get that mistakes can happened his not being aware of his surroundings ruined my day and you would think staff would take more care.
Having every single staff member asking me every 20-30min how I was doing didnt help either. Just have 1 dedicated person to handle accidents.

So be careful of water camera people...
