Covid Cancellation Policy

One of the questions we get asked the most at the moment is; ‘What happens if my travel plans are effected by COVID lockdowns?’.

The answer is simple. Our standard refund policy is extremely flexible and under normal conditions cancellations can occur within 72 hours anyway.

COVID has proven it knows how to throw a spanner in the works though so if WA is locked down or travel restrictions are put in place within that 72 hour period we can offer a full credit for use at another time. Customer satisfaction and peace of mind starts well before the tour and we will work with you all the way to ensure your experience is memorable from start to finish.

Whale Sharks Ningaloo

Explore

Set alongside the rugged red limestone ranges of Cape Range, the sparkling waters of Ningaloo Reef is an underwater coral playground for an array of marine life. Spend an unforgettable day immersed in the beauty of the coral coast. Be mesmerised as manta rays backflip and glide underneath you and a technicolour dream of tropical fish surrounds you (hi Nemo!).

Marvel at the turtles and reef sharks that meander alongside you on the white sandy ocean floor, and watch dolphins leap and play on the surface as you cruise under wonderous blue skies.

Join the passionate team at Three Islands Whale Shark Dive as we take you on a day of adventure and discovery on the Ningaloo Reef.

Itinerary

Journey to the Tantabiddi Boat Ramp departure point

Your day starts at approximately 8.15 am when our comfortable and air-conditioned courtesy bus picks you up from your Exmouth accommodation for the 36-kilometre trip to the Tantabiddi Boat Ramp. Sit back and enjoy the scenery as your guide provides information on local landmarks, history and great facts about the stunning Ningaloo Reef and its inhabitants. The day’s program is also outlined, helping to ensure you feel relaxed, informed and comfortable about the upcoming events.

The Adventure Begins

Sit back and relax as we cruise through the lagoon before you plunge into the crystal clear waters of the inner Ningaloo Reef. Have the chance to see a turtle swim past, manta rays resting in the sand, and a myriad of colourful fish amongst the Ningaloo coral. If required, assistance and snorkel tuition can be provided by your tour guides.

Time to be Brief

Following the morning snorkel, a whale shark interaction briefing is given over morning tea. As with our peak season Whale Shark Interaction Tour there are strict swimming guidelines we must all follow.

Marine Life

At the conclusion of the brief the vessel fires into life as we head to the outer reef in the search of Ningaloo’s marine life; dolphins, dugongs, manta rays, humpback whales and, of course, whale sharks! Our spotter plane will be overhead on the lookout for us. Enjoy a delicious buffet lunch in between the sightings.

Back to Exmouth

If time permits, we head back to the inner reef to conclude the day with another reef snorkel somewhere else on the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef. A fruit and cheese platter finishes off the day as we head back to Tantabiddi for the journey back to your accommodation, returning approximately 3.30–4.30pm.
