Enjoy an extraordinary experience on this cruise along the coast of Exmouth to observe and even swim with whale sharks, the world's biggest marine mammal!

Early in the morning, between 7am and 7:45am you will be picked up from your hotel in Exmouth and driven to the cruise departure point, located around 40 kilometres away. At around 8am, board the small boat and set off in search for the whale sharks and other species that inhabit the coast under the guidance of an expert marine guide.

Once you have found the whale sharks, you'll have the opportunity to put on your mask and snorkel and dive into the sea to join them. Completely harmless, some whales can reach 20 metres in length and weigh 34 tonnes. If you prefer, you can stay on board and just observe from the comfort of the boat.

At midday, a buffet lunch will be served on board. At the end of the afternoon, you'll be dropped off at the foot of your hotel. A CD with photos from the trip will be offered to you as a lasting souvenir of this special day out.
