What a brilliant day! From start to finish the Ningaloo Blue crew were professional, fun, caring and friendly.
After an early pick-up we enjoyed Esther’s informative commentary on the way to the boat ramp. A quick snorkel inside the reef allowed everyone to become familiar with our gear (which was of top quality) before being served a delicious morning tea back on the spacious boat. After a comprehensive safety briefing it was time to wait for the first whale shark sighting, and we didn’t have to wait long! The spotter plane found a whale shark within 6 mins and soon the first group was entering the water with the second group close behind. The crew displayed excellent teamwork in always knowing where the shark was and allowing each group maximal time in the water. With safety and organisation paramount, we each had about 6-7 swims with 5 different whale sharks. A gourmet lunch was served on board before we sought out some humpback whales and returned inside the reef for a second snorkel followed by fruit and champagne on the journey home. After speaking to friends who went on different boats, Ningaloo Blue certainly sounded superior in terms of organisation, personnel and food! Thanks to Brad, Esther, Row, V and Jake for a faultless day, I can’t wait to come back :-)

Ningaloo blue is the way to go when you're wanting to swim with the whale sharks. Crew are extremely professional and not once was I scared or apprehensive. Saw so many whale sharks, one was about 8ms long sooo massive! Food was great. Shout out to Naomi who was absolutely fantastic!

Swimming with Whale Sharks was always going to be an amazing experience, but Ningaloo Blue made it an all out simply fabulous day from start to finish. Although we were there for the Whale Sharks it was all the extras that really completed the day.

We were picked up from our accommodation by the friendly vibrant staff and taken to the boat where we headed off for an amazing morning snorkel. Morning tea was immediately served and then we headed out to find the whale sharks which didn't take long. It was a little rough that day but the excitement of seeing breaching whales, sea snakes and whale sharks certainly took our minds off the open ocean. The provided wetsuits were also great.

After 5 swims with the sharks, each one a different experience we headed back inside the reef for a truly gourmet lunch and were treated to the sighting of many a Dugong. This was followed by fruit and champagne. The staff could not do enough for us and were a pleasure to be around.

After a long day we were treated to a chocolate on the way home.

I highly recommend purchasing a video of the experience.

I think you well and truly get your dollars worth and then some

A must do with Ningaloo Blue

The crew were very friendly, helpful, and professional. Management is very lucky to have them. We had 20 people on our trip and we split into 2 groups (10 people in each). I was satisfied with the amount of time spent in the water with the whale sharks. Each group got to do 4 or 5 swims with the whale sharks. They made it fair, everyone had equal time spent with the whale sharks. On our first snorkel we saw manta rays, the crew did their best to spot some for us to swim with. We also saw lots of humpback whales. I brought the DVD ($60) that captured all our swims with the whale sharks. It is worth it because the footage is so clear, very happy with V's videography skills! I can't fault Ningaloo Blue, and I am so glad I decided to book this amazing experience with them. Thank-you!

Round of applause to the committed and marine-loving Ningaloo Blue Dive staff. Our day spent snorkelling the Ningaloo Reef and swimming with a gigantic whale shark was a surreal experience, made just that little bit more special by a wonderful group of people showing us the sights and teaching us about this gentle giant.
The cruise was fantastic, the buffet lunch - delicious and the friendly, professional crew were great!

I highly recommend these guys.
