HUMPBACK WHALE SAFARI 

1/4

Book Now to join Humpback In-water Interaction trial for 2021!

Join us to observe humpback whales in their natural environment.   If conditions are safe, and we are able to do so, guests may be able to experience an in water interaction with these majestic animals as well!

Humpback whale season in Coral Bay begins at the end of June and runs through to mid October.  During this time it is estimated around 30,000 whales pass through Ningaloo Reef on their annual migration, sometimes stopping to rest, shelter, and play in the calm waters of Coral Bay.  

We are dealing with Mother Nature and animal behavior.  Therefore opportunities will vary from day to day.  Nothing in nature is guaranteed, however every effort will be made to ensure you have an amazing day out.  For each tour there is 14 swimming spots available.

If and when our trained guide deems it is safe to do so, swimming guests will enter the water at a safe distance from the animals either from the side or in front of the whales path.  It is then all up to the whales and each interaction will be on their terms.  Humpback whales can be curious and may approach swimmers, or they simply may pass by.  An in water interaction is defined as being in the water within the exclusive contact zone.

Humpback wildlife: guest will not participate in the swimming with humpback whales however, if there is not already 14 interaction swimmers you may upgrade on the boat. 

Humpback interaction observers: will partake in everything except getting in the water.

Wild Life Swimmer: will partake in everything except swimming with humpback

NINGALOO REEF’S BEST HUMPBACK WHALE TOURS ARE WITH CORAL BAY ECOTOURS

This beautiful part of Australia receives many visitors, both animal and human. The trained guides at Coral Bay Ecotours prioritise the comfort and safety of all guests, but we also do our best to ensure everybody enjoys themselves. Those who are swimming with the humpback whales will have a chance to interact closely with them, but our guests who wish to observe from a distance will also have plenty to keep them mesmerised.

 

On our humpback whale tours, we often see other striking animals like dolphins and manta rays, and of course, mother whales resting while their calves frolic in the calm waters. These splendid animals have also been spotted amusing themselves by rolling in the water, waving at us with their huge pectoral fins, slapping their giant tails playfully, and even jumping out of the water!
