An unforgettable experience is swimming with humpback whales along the stunning Ningaloo Reef. Book one of our trips today to experience the excitement for yourself.

Come see humpback whales in their natural habitat with Coral Bay Eco tours. Visitors will be allowed to interact with these magnificent animals in the water, if it safe and we are able to do so. This full-day tour starts with a stunning reef snorkel. Where you might see turtles, reef sharks, stingrays, and many kinds of fish! We then travel to the open ocean to watch the whales in their natural habitat.

Swimmers will be divided into groups. And prepared to enter the water if our experienced guide determines it is safe to do so. Swimmers will enter the water with 2 crew members at a time, taking turns entering the water in safe locations to the side or in front of the whale’s course. The whales will then decide how each interaction will go; it is all up to them. When humpback whales are curious, they could come close to swimmers or they might just pass by.

We Provide: A full buffet lunch, morning and afternoon tea. All snorkel equipment including wetsuits, fresh water, tea, coffee, large change room facility and toilet.
What you need to bring: Towel, hat, sunscreen, swimsuit, water bottle, warm clothing.
Please note: Although every effort is made to provide you with the opportunity to see and interact with the wildlife. We cannot guarantee nature. For each tour there is a maximum of 14 spots available for swimmers.

Whale Migration

Coral Bay’s humpback whale season starts at the end of June and lasts until mid-October. Around 30,000 whales are thought to pass through Ningaloo Reef, Occasionally stopping to rest, find shelter, and have fun in Coral Bay’s calm waters.

Mother Nature and animal behaviour are issues we must deal with. Opportunities will therefore change daily. Although nothing in nature can be guaranteed, We’ll do everything we can to make sure you have a fantastic day out.


A refund from the interaction charge to the “Wildlife swimmer” price will be given to interaction swimmers if an in-water interaction is not feasible on the tour day. For this tour, Coral Bay Ecotours does not provide non-sighting repeat vouchers.

​​In the event that there is no sighting while in the water, a refund will not be given. There will be no refunds given for in-water interactions, including whale shark swimming.
