Join the passionate team at 3 Islands Whale Shark Dive as we take you on a day of adventure and discovery on Ningaloo Reef.


Your day starts at approximately 8.00am when the 3 Islands air conditioned courtesy bus picks you up from your Exmouth accommodation for the 36 kilometre journey to the Tantabiddi Boat Ramp departure point. During the drive to Tanttabiddi, you can sit back and enjoy the scenery as your guide provides information on local landmarks, history and great facts about the Ningaloo Reef and its inhabitants. The day’s program is also outlined, helping to ensure you feel relaxed, informed and comfortable about the upcoming events.

From the boat ramp you are transferred to your 17 metre vessel for the day. From there, the crew will provide and fit you with snorkel equipment and wetsuits, before giving an introductory and safety briefing.

A short cruise through the lagoon and the marine adventure begins with a morning introductory snorkel on the beautiful inner Ningaloo Reef. If required, assistance and snorkel tuition can be provided by your tour guides. Have the chance to see a turtle swim past, a ray resting in the sand and a myriad of colourful fish amongst the coral.

Following the morning snorkel, a whale shark interaction briefing is given over morning tea, just in case we encounter a whale shark during the day and there are strict swimming guidelines we must follow.

At the conclusion of the brief the vessel fires into life as we head to the outer reef in the search of Ningaloo’s marine life; dolphins, dugongs, manta rays, humpback whales and hopefully whale sharks!

The spotter plane will also be overhead on the lookout for us!

During the day, a delicious buffet lunch is served. If time permits, we head back to the inner reef to conclude the day with another reef snorkel somewhere else on the World Heritage listed; Ningaloo.

Our photographer is always there capturing images and cherished moments that will long be remembered, on a free complimentary CD available from our shop the next morning.

A fruit and cheese platter finishes off the day as we head back to Tantabiddi for the journey back to your accommodation, returning approximately 3.30 – 4.30pm.
