​WHALE WATCHING, SNORKELLING TOURS AND MORE IN NINGALOO REEF’S CORAL BAY

If you’re looking for an experience to remember at the Ningaloo Reef, Coral Bay Ecotours’ marine activities are sure to impress! There are some incredible encounters you can have with the reef’s diverse wildlife, whether you want something as thrilling as going for a swim with Ningaloo Reef’s whale sharks or prefer more relaxing activities like whale watching and snorkelling tours. Coral Bay Ecotours has packages to suit the whole family!

THE BEST TIME FOR CORAL BAY’S WHALE WATCHING AND WHALE SHARK TOURS

Ningaloo’s whale shark season is between March and June. During this four-month period, the migrating whale sharks inhabit Australian waters due to the reef’s annual coral spawning. This amazing event transforms the pristine coastal waters from Exmouth to Coral Bay into colourful clouds. The coral spawning attracts the whale sharks’ favourite foods, krill and plankton, which in turn draws the whale sharks to the Ningaloo Reef.

Coral Bay Ecotours offers swimming with whale sharks for confident swimmers. We include wetsuit and snorkel gear, as well as optional extras such as photo/video footage of your experience (at an additional cost).

If you prefer admiring wildlife from afar, we also have whale watching tours as Coral Bay is part of the migration path for several kinds of whales. Tours are best booked between July and October when the whales are migrating to Australia’s warmer waters to birth and raise their calves. Seeing these gentle giants leap and dive through the water and waving their huge tails is an awe-inspiring experience thanks to their size and playfulness. The most commonly seen animal during our whale watching tours is the humpback whale, but observant visitors might also spot other whales diving and jumping like minkes, southern rights, and orcas. There are also chances to see other intelligent marine animals like turtles, dolphins and manta rays.
