Adventures with Whale Sharks in Exmouth From March to August Each Year 

Exmouth is one of the few spots in Australia where you may swim with whale sharks. It is a tiny town on the tip of Western Australia’s northwest cape. It is also close to Ningaloo Reef, the world’s largest fringing reef. Exmouth may be reached by car (11-hour journey from Perth) or by plane (2-hour flight from Perth).

Swimming with the majestic creatures of the sea, the legendary whale shark, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience — an awe-inspiring wildlife encounter that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Whale sharks are the largest fish in the world. These peaceful titans, however, are not to be feared. Whale sharks are filter feeders that mostly feed on plankton.

The whale shark inhabits all tropical and warm-temperate seas. The fish is primarily pelagic, and can be found in both coastal and oceanic habitats living in the open sea but not in the greater depths of the ocean, although it is known to occasionally dive to depths of as much as 1,900 metres (6,200 ft).

Exmouth Whale Shark Tour March & April

Ningaloo Visitor center Whale Sharks

March and April are hotter, like a tropical beach holiday without the humidity. Two very special events during these times are the coral spawning that swims out on the Ningaloo reef and baby turtles that come out of their nest on the beaches along the Cape and make a crazy run for the relative safety of the waters of the inner Ningaloo Reef.

Whale Watching Tours

At the end of May and June, two and three of the three big whales join the whale sharks of the Ningaloo Reef. And the first of the humpbacks begin to pass by on their way to their calving grounds off the Kimberley. A whale shark tour between late May and August is often about whale shark and manta ray swimming, watching the stunning surface displays of the humpbacks and then surrounded by whale songs while you also snorkel the Ningaloo Reef!
That said, many inhabitants of the city, apart from the fact that they are busy, see that July is the best month to live and tour on the Ningaloo, with beautiful weather, great sea life and the Big Three Whales that are commonly observed during whale shark tours.

Exmouth Whale Shark Tour August, September to October

August weather usually stays nice. Until the whale sharks leave, it is often possible to swim with humpback whales, whale sharks, and manta rays during your visit to Exmouth. September and October offer warmer weather, perfect for escaping winter in the south. Humpback whale swimming and viewing tours continue.
