Our Whale Shark/Humpback/Eco Sea Life Tour begins with a pickup from approx 7.10am. By 8.00am, you are on board the vessel "Magellan" ready for a snorkel on the magical Ningaloo Reef. This takes about 40 minutes to assess how well everyone swims, and to view corals and fish. A spotter plane will lead us out to the deeper water advising whatever marine life is out there and you may then have the opportunity of swimming with Whale Sharks, Humpback Whales, Manta Rays or whatever else we may encounter. Morning tea, afternoon tea and a full buffet lunch is included, with hot/cold refreshments available throughout the day. After our deeper water swims, time permitting, the tour ends with another swim on the Ningaloo Reef before heading back to your accommodation at approximately 4.00pm. All snorkel gear is included in the price and wet suits are available free of charge if required.

We are privileged to have some of the most beautiful calm and crystal clear waters on the globe and with Kings you’ll be enjoying your time with the majestic creatures of the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area in 5 star comfort.  Observers will get the chance to view whale sharks, manta rays, spinner dolphins, dugongs, turtles and a myriad of other amazing marine life from the
boat.  As well as viewing all of these amazing creatures you may also experience the thrill of watching the Manta Rays as they leap with great fury out of the water like a huge bird with wings outstretched. Manta Rays can reach a width of 15 feet and upwards and a weight of perhaps a ton. During the winter months till as late as October or November the Rays are common and may hunt around the islands of the Coral Coast for some weeks. They swim by means of up and down movement of their great, expansive pectoral fins.

One of the highlights of the Whale Shark/Humpback/Eco Sea Life Tour are the humpback whales, breaching and interacting with their young in one of the most fantastic climates in the world as they migrate along the west coast of Australia. Since August 2016 we have also been able to have the opportunity of swimming with these glorious creatures.

The turtles of Ningaloo Reef are another feature which inspire the imagination as they travel through the clear tropical waters. Green Turtles, Hawksbill and Loggerhead Turtles all hunt, mate and travel to the beach to lay their eggs along the reef on the various islands and mainland along the coral coast.

One of the specialties of travelling on a Kings Ningaloo Reef Tour is the sheer professionalism, dedication and level of care our crew demonstrate to ensure each and every one of our guests walks away totally elated after experiencing one of the best days of their lives; anything less is simply not good enough!  Also, our vessel "Magellan", is a fully shaded, 20 metre mono hull providing an extremely comfortable and roomy platform for our guests to enjoy their day on the sea.  No matter what age you are everyone has plenty of room for chilling in between swims and from where to enjoy our scrumptious food and drinks which are available all day.

Please Note:  While our success rate is extremely high, as we are working with Mother Nature, we ask for your consideration if certain marine life is not seen.

As Humpback Whales are large animals that can move quickly, there is a physicality to this tour. Swimmers will need to be confident in the water in order to attempt a Humpback Whale swim.
