Is Swimming with Whale Sharks Safe?

The whale shark (Rhincodon Typus) is the biggest fish in the world reaching up to 14 meters or more in length. Luckily, the whale shark is a filter feeder and these gentle giants feed on the tiniest organisms in the sea. You can safely snorkel alongside whale sharks between March and August from the North Western Australian coastal towns of Coral Bay and Exmouth.

Swim with Whale Sharks – the world’s biggest fish! Tours available in Coral Bay or Exmouth (north Western Australia) from March to August.

The biggest known living fish species with the largest confirmed length of 14m, Whale sharks are grey in appearance with a white belly and they have white spots and stripes on their skin which are unique to each individual Whale shark. Whale sharks inhabit all tropical and warm-temperate seas and seasonal feeding aggregations occur at only several coastal sites including the Ningaloo Reef.

The Western Australian coastal towns of Exmouth and Coral Bay, in the Ningaloo Marine Park, are the best places to see Whale Sharks on the west coast. Exmouth is 1200km (750mi) north of Perth and is a regional centre. Daily flights are available from Perth to Learmonth Airport take 2-3 hours. Coral Bay is a small town located 150km (90mi) south of Exmouth, on the Ningaloo Reef.
