My partner and I did the whale shark swimming with 3 islands in June 2016. This was without a doubt one of the most amazing trips we've ever done. We managed to swim three times with two different whale sharks which was an unbelievable experience. We also saw a vast array of wildlife including two different species of dolphins. We... More

I went far out of my way to Exmouth Australia just for the best Eco marine friendly encounter with the biggest fish in the ocean. It was so good that I went back 2 days later cause that's what I went there for. The entire staff is fabulous, the size, the food, the safe and responsible way in which tourism... More

When you put yourselves in the hands of people, who know what they are doing, love what they do, care about the place where they do it and the people and creatures involved, how can you go wrong. As part of one of those significant rolling celebrations of a significant milestone in the life of someone special to me, we... More

3 Islands is a well run operation that I would recommend to anyone wanting to swim with whale sharks. They get everyone lined up in the best vantage spots to see the sharks, while keeping you at a safe distance, and provide you with a disc of photos from the day to take home (which are fantastic). All the staff... More

We went on the humpback whale tour and it was more than we could have ever imagined! There were only 4 of us total so we got a very intimate tour which was amazing. The crew were extremely friendly and fun to spend the day with. We went snorkeling first and saw a reef shark and tons of gorgeous fish... More

Just a fantastic day from start to finish - very professional, friendly, entertaining, and supportive. Information given from the very beginning of the day and throughout the trip, a well-run operation with the spotter plane and brilliant crew who make sure you get the best out of your experience. Highly highly recommend and would happily go again :)

It is so difficult to explain all the emotions we experienced during this day tour on the beatiful Draw Card Boat. We were 3 adults, one teenager and theree kids of 9 and 11.

The team were fabulous, friendly and knowledgeable. They couldn't do enough to make sure everyone got the best experience, my 11 year old son was nervous about getting in the deep water so one of the team stayed with him personally until he was confident enough to swim with the whale sharks. We saw 3 whale sharks, bull sharks, turtles... More
