FAQs Is it safe to come on a whale shark tour at this time? We are carefully monitoring guidelines from the government on how to proceed in the best way possible.  As regional restrictions are slowly lifted and group sizes increase we can come together again in a mindful way to enjoy the Ningaloo.  We are taking baby steps, with the utmost care for our guests, community and crew to open up the reef once more for everyone to enjoy.  Our attention to hygiene is thorough, and we will be outside in the fresh air practically all day. What adjustments have been made to the tours and vessels?
  • Wiping down of surfaces.
  • Handwashing encouraged regularly.
  • COVID procedures in place.

  • Freshly preparing food on the boat THAT DAY using gloves.
  • Hand soap and tissues available.
My booking is in the next few months and I’m currently unable to reach Exmouth due to travel restrictions, what should I do? Wait and see!  The government is giving us permission to do more and more each day.  We are taking things step by step.  Reassess if you can make it closer to the time.  We are offering 2 year credit notes, the option to postpone or refunds as per our terms and conditions.
