NINGALOO REEF ECO WILDLIFE TOURS

SEPTEMBER – NOVEMBER 2021

The Coral Coast of Western Australia is home to an abundance of unique wildlife, full of national parks and reefs ready to be explored all year round. During the whale shark shoulder season (September to November), Ningaloo Discovery operates ECO Wildlife Tours around the Ningaloo Reef, allowing guests to experience the beauty of the reef and all it has to offer each day.

The spotter plane will search for any animals on the reef that guests can swim and interact with including manta rays, humpback whales and whale wharks.

Whale sharks are often seen right through until November, and should the spotter plane see one during this shoulder season, Ningaloo Discovery will take you swimming with it!  Everything you need is provided on board for all Ningaloo Discovery tours including snorkelling equipment, wetsuits, food and drinks, and knowledgeable tour guides who are passionate about the Ningaloo Reef and all marine life in the area.

Ningaloo Discovery will even provide each guest with a full professional photography package of the day FREE OF CHARGE!! The clear waters of the North West make for perfect conditions to swim with giants of the sea, and snorkel beautiful coral reefs.

The Ningaloo Reef is alive with marine wildlife during the month of August and on any given day Mother Nature may present the opportunity to view or swim with Manta Rays, Whale Sharks, Humpback Whales, Turtles, dugongs, dolphins and a huge variety of tropical fish and corals.
