Join us on a typ­i­cal whale shark adven­ture with Three Islands… 

Your day starts with the jour­ney to the west side of North West Cape. From the beach you are trans­ferred to Draw Card where you are warm­ly greet­ed and assist­ed on board by our skip­per and the two guid­ing staff. Once on board, the crew are intro­duced, you will be fit­ted with snorkel equip­ment and, before the boat leaves its moor­ings, a ves­sel safe­ty brief­ing is given. 

A short cruise through the lagoon and the marine adven­ture begins with an intro­duc­to­ry snorkel on the World Her­itage list­ed Ninga­loo reef. If required, assis­tance and snorkel tuition can be pro­vid­ed by your guides. A site brief­ing includ­ing safe­ty pro­ce­dures and reef eti­quette is delivered. 

Once back on board the star attrac­tion becomes the focal point. Over morn­ing tea, a whale shark inter­ac­tion brief­ing is giv­en by your guide who explains the code of con­duct. All aspects of what is about to hap­pen is cov­ered. At the con­clu­sion of the brief the ves­sel fires into life and you can feel the antic­i­pa­tion build as we head to the out­er reef wait­ing for the spot­ter plane to noti­fy us that a whale shark has been found. The crew mix­es with and chats to every­one, answer­ing any ques­tions you might have. Then, the radio crack­les and the adven­ture is about to begin. The deck begins to buzz and you try and remem­ber points of the brief­ing while main­tain­ing your com­po­sure. A mix of sheer excite­ment with a hint of appre­hen­sion is vis­i­ble on even the most expe­ri­enced swim­mers faces. 

What am I about to do? I’m jump­ing in the ocean with the worlds biggest fish!? 

As the boat is lined up, what awaits our first group of swimmers? 

Faces down, you see it emerg­ing from the dis­tance with its mas­sive mouth wide open, as it gets clos­er and swims past appre­hen­sion becomes amaze­ment and the excite­ment builds as guests swim along with their own big spot­ty fish. 

The adren­a­lin builds while wait­ing to be picked up, ready to do it again and again. Our expe­ri­enced pho­tog­ra­ph­er is always there cap­tur­ing moments that will long be remem­bered. Once the whale shark inter­ac­tions are over, we head back to the inner reef to con­clude the day with anoth­er reef snorkel on Ningaloo. 

What do our guests take away? An expe­ri­ence of a life­time! Sat­is­fac­tion in the knowl­edge they have sup­port­ed eco-tourism, and wit­nessed some­thing as awe inspir­ing as the whale shark in its own envi­ron­ment in a sus­tain­able man­ner. We also guar­an­tee a good nights sleep after the tour. A day in the warm waters of Ninga­loo swim­ming with the whale sharks and oth­er marine life will leave the fittest guest slight­ly tuck­ered out! 

We believe there’s no oth­er expe­ri­ence like it!
