Swim with Humpback Whales Adventure Day from Exmouth
1 to 9 hours
New! – Swim with Humpback Whales AdventuresThe chance to swim with Humpback Whales is an opportunity that has only been offered in Western Australia since 2016 when selected operators were granted licences on a preliminary trial. On our bespoke small group tour, you’ll be able to interact closely with magnificent Humpbacks, the acrobats of the ocean. We will escort groups of five at a time to snorkel and swim within a safe distance of them. The whales are easy to spot as they exhibit behaviours such as breaching, slapping the water with their tales (flukes) and fins, and blowing streams of water up to 6 metres in the air. The licences to offer Humpback Whale swimming experiences were extended to selected operators in 2017 and again in 2018, allowing us to offer you an intimate swim with Humpback Whales experience once again this year. We are currently taking bookings for 2018.When can you swim with Humpback Whales?Each year, Humpback Whales begin their epic migration northwards from the cold waters of Antarctica, to the tropical waters of Broome, Western Australia. Their migration is one of the longest of any mammal in the world at approximately 6,700km long, and lasts for up to 8 months. The Exmouth Gulf, where all life on Ningaloo Reef starts, provides an important transition area for the whales, measuring up to 18m long and weighing as much as 40 tonnes, and offers one of the best chances to see them up close.We will be offering our Humpback Whale Swimming Tours as part of a limited trial from 1 August to 31 October 2018, when thousands of Humpbacks are expected to again pass through the Ningaloo Marine Park. From being an endangered species, conservation efforts are estimated to have boosted the migrating population of Humpbacks to around 30,000, resulting in the species being delisted as endangered – great news for the whales and for those who are passionate about wildlife.
