        Incredible place to do my IDC! Thanks Ana!
        Did my Instructor Development Course with amazing Course Director Ana! It was the best training I could have wished for. Ana was really organized, she was clearly very experienced as an instructor giving us plenty of examples and realistic scenario's, she was very thorough with the Dive Theory and PADI Standards, and making sure we were well prepared for all the parts of the Instructor Exam so by the time it came around for us to do our exams, we all passed with flying colours! She was also understanding and compassionate when we were struggling and made us feel very safe and reassured. Absolutely the best person to help us become instructors and also an incredible place to do it !!! (we got to see the Ningaloo Reef and Muiron Islands as well during our course). Thank you so much Ana for everything! Will never stop recommending people to do their IDC with you and Exmouth Diving Centre!

        Whale shark swim, spectacular snorkelling, friendly staff, marvellous day
        The entire experience was amazing. Bucket list tick! The boat was high quality and comfortable (Blue Strike), the staff were super freindly and took the time to explain and ensure we maximised our time swimming with the whale sharks. Jeff the Captain did an amazing job getting us into position efficiently. Super fun day, then to cap it off, the quality of the pics and videos of the day were next level! Massive thank you ...The Mayor of the Sal Salis 6 :-)

        A Surreal Experience
        Swimming with Whale Sharks has been on my bucket list & thanks to the amazing Crew of Jazz-2 (our boat for the day) on 12 March 2024 I got to tick that box with this surreal experience It’s incredible to watch these huge fish (one’s we saw on the day varied in length 4 to 8 metres) serenely swim up from deep blue. I can’t rate my experience with Exmouth Dive & Whalesharks Ningaloo more highly. Picked up from Exmouth Wharf in mini bus (we were off a cruise ship), driven through amazing area that is the North West Cape to Ningaloo Reef boat ramp. Taken out to our boat Jazz-2, clear considerably instructions for safety & to optimise our day. All gear in great condition & best ever they gave me prescription lens face mask 👏👏👏 We did swims & had incredible & rare scenario of two whalesharks together. I am a strong swimmer & confident snorkeller but the Crew did amazing job for people that weren’t & they got the opportunity to swim in open ocean The Crew also prepared an amazing lunch. We also saw dolphins, mantra-ray & turtles Do this once in your life, make sure you book Exmouth Dive & Whalesharks Ningaloo

        Fantastic whaleshark trip with some lovely snorkelling spots run by an amazing and professional team. Well catered for with snacks and lunch and soft drinks (hot and cold) on tap.

        Swimming with Whalesharks
        We had the most amazing day with Exmouth Dive Centre. The whole day was so well organised & ran like clockwork. We were so fortunate to find the most chilled, calm whaleshark to swim with & the snkorkeling was unreal. The extra little touches like a glass of bubbles after seeing the whalesharks & having photos of us swimming with the whalesharks included made the whole experience extra special. Huge thanks to the crew for a truly wonderful experience 🙏 ❤️

        Whale Shark Magnificence..! 🐋
        What an incredible experience! A definite highlight on our around Oz adventure. The staff were so attentive and supportive with our 10yr old daughter and I watched her confidence soar with each jump in with the whale sharks. A bucket list experience for sure!! Thanks team 🐋🙏

        ONCE IN A LIFETIME
        All reports suggest you can’t see whale sharks in October at Exmouth. They are all wrong, this was a fantastic experience we swam with 2 whale sharks, I could not hav swam anymore. We also saw a dolphin while snorkeling along with turtles (doing the tango!) & hump back whales from the boat. Furthermore there less people out there because it was off season and the sea was the warmest you could hope for whalesharks = actually this was the best time of the year to do it! I will add to above a traveller friend advised me (from speaking to a competitor operator who don’t go in Oct) that only 1 whale shark had been seen from all tours in October with 30 people trying to see them, how wrong he was and how glad I am, I listened to this tour group instead. Also want to add the staff that worked on this boat were all excellent, they made the whole experience very enjoyable; the spotters helped to make it even more exciting, the photographer was arguably the number 1 ocean photographer in Exmouth & Michael had a great sense of humour, providing lots of advice on various other things we could do in Exmouth. We are all very glad we did this tour, once in a lifetime and well worth it.

        Excellent trip
        The staff were excellent in making sure everyone got what they wanted from the trip. There was a big age range from children (7and 9) to late 60s as well as experience snorkeling. From very experienced to having snorkel only once before. Some people choose to enjoy the trip and did not enter the water. The snorkeling spots were great, so many different varieties of fish including sharks. Plus we saw turtles mating. The best was the whale shark. We had 4 opportunities to see and swim with it. Amazing animal. The staff were very helpful making sure you saw and could swim with it. For this trip , you are driven to the site where the boat is anchored offshore and are transported by tender boat. This is close to turquoise bay. Can highly recommend.

        Magnificent Jetty diving experience
        Exceptional experience and one of the best scuba diving experiences you will ever have The easiest way to describe the dive is what didn’t you go and see

      A very busy time for Ningaloo Reef. Various staff around the region complained of it seeming like school holidays for the past year and a half.
      We wanted to book on one of the whaleshark tours but unfortunately it was booked out. We settled on the Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) and booked for Monday June 14th to cap of our WA coast holiday, we waited excitedly for days.
      As accomodation in Exmouth was fully booked we stayed in Coral Bay (which we would now recommend over Exmouth).
      On Monday morning we left at 6am for the drive to Exmouth, realising upon our arrival in Exmouth at 8am that we had received a text message from 7:15am that our instructor had "called in sick with a bad cold".
      Aah yes, the old Monday morning cold...
      We arrived at the shed anyway to ask the staff what happened? what we could do? was there another tour option?
      The girl at the counter explained that she sympathised with the poor instructor, as scuba with a cold isn't very nice. Also, they don't have another instructor and all other experiences were booked out... When I described our predicament and our journey from Coral Bay, she then explained that this was why they recommend people don't stay in Coral Bay, which was not an option for us, nor was it mentioned when I called the day before our tour to confirm the weather and our pickup location.
      Turns out it was our fault that we didn't have something else to do on Australia's remote north western coast when you can't find the staff to fulfill your contractual obligations.

      I not long ago completed the 3 day PADI Open Water Dive Course, with my instructor Gaston. I had an amazing time 😃 Gaston was brilliant, calming and knowledgeable. Hopefully I get to go back and visit one day. We saw so much, it felt like an aquarium at depths in Lighthouse Bay 👌🏼! Massive thank you to all the team, but mostly the instructors Gaston and Matt

      Highly recommend the centre for people wanting to learn to dive 😁

      Hi there I have been coming to scuba dive Ningaloo Reef at Exmouth since 1993 and have always gone with EDC and have usually stayed for a week diving flat out living the dream diving non stop because it is such a special part of the world. There have been a few owners over the years and it was always a professional set up hence I stayed loyal and then Mark and Deb took over the company who I used to dive with their company in Fremantle in the mid 2000’s. So some years ago they took over here and have taken the dive company to the next professional level and last Friday the 13th of October 2023 we did 2 dives on Lighthouse Bay and it was one of the best trips I have been on! It’s ok to be 100% honest! The marine life on the way out was awesome with humpbacks 🐋 turtles 🐢 a big olive sea snake 🐍 and this is before we went underwater 😎 Then on the first dive having a big Manta glide right past us at the start of the dive was unbelievable. The whole day was exceptional and what makes it is the professional service from the skipper and crew was second to none 😎👍😎 Definitely was like I said one of the best trips I have done on Ningaloo and that is over 50+ dives over the years coming here. Like to thank the dive crews we had and the captain for the great day and such a great dive boat to go on that’s got all the comfort. Looking forward to coming back soon so a big shout out to a great team as was a great day 😎👍😎🇦🇺

      We were supposed to go to Blizzard Ridge but the cyclone ruined visibility. But we didn't figure that out until we all went down, swam around a bit, couldn't see anything and then had to move sites. So we wasted some time there, and then went to Bundiggi (sp?), an alternate dive site. Normally, I'm pretty understanding about weather - the crew obviously can't control it - but they had no policy for either partial refunds or rescheduling. Then we found out when we got back that the other dive boat that had the same problems gave everyone a partial refund, so then we all felt crappy for having paid so much for a kind of crappy dive day. And while I loved the dive team, I was mostly annoyed because our dive instructor did not seem experienced enough to handle the problems the group had. One woman clearly had no idea how much weight she needed and the instructor didn't bring enough, and the woman didn't do her buoyancy test properly, so we didn't find out until the dive started that she needed more weight and it ended up messing with the dive. Then the instructor didn't have enough weight and was having to grab live coral to hold herself to the ground. It was... not good. I hate leaving less than five star reviews but for as expensive as this trip was, the experience was really way beneath the cost. I will say the crew were all lovely people, it was just way too expensive for what we actually received unfortunately. They should have issued partial refunds like the other boat or given us a credit for another dive.

      My partner and I recently completed our Open Water PADI Dive Course with Exmouth Dive and truly cannot put into words how incredible our experience was.
      Yardena (Jordan) was our instructor and her kind heart and fun attitude made the three days of the course both extremely enjoyable and put all nerves at ease.
      In our ocean dives, we saw reef sharks, mantarays, turtles, whales and so much more! Her adventurous spirit allowed our group to safely adventure the ocean whilst learning valuable skills.
      Tyler was a fantastic skipper and went out of his way to ensure all of the passengers saw a range of sea life and were comfortable.

      We cannot recommend Exmouth Dive again! Will be back!

      My partner & I thoroughly enjoyed our scuba diving experience… the staff were very knowledgable, highly professional, very attentive to all levels of experience and very approachable. The boat was comfortable & we never felt cramped, we always felt safe, the whole day moved smoothly, we saw incredible amounts of marine life & they catered for vegetarians & vegans. Our dive master Lindsay was amazing, she really made the day!

      Timmy was brilliant and gave us confidence in ourselves to successfully complete the Open Water Training module. His explanations and instructions were outstanding and we would happily complete additional courses with him. The rest of the team were also excellent with clear instructions and support; they all had pride in their work.

      Nice and helpful crew. Good choices of dive sites. The boat ride was good and smooth. It was spacious and steady. The crew also introduced the marine life we saw to us.
      Transfer bus is available but has musky smell.

      For myself being on discover scuba experience, the instructor was experienced and patient in assisting me throughout the dives.

      Dive master Wallis (Valis?) was great - knowledgeable and reassuring. We were lucky with excellent weather and not to many people on the boat. Two dives. We saw turtles, rays, octopus, eel, shark and some stunning sea snakes. This is everything you would expect and really good value.
