Priority Plus Humpback Whale Tour Booking | August - September

We have developed these tours exclusively for agents based on feedback from a wide variety of agents. The big difference on previous years is we offer our base tours direct to customers, whilst we offer Priority Plus Whaleshark Tour and Humpback Whale Swimming Tours exclusively through our agents.
Our Priority Plus tours package up
- our Humpback Whale tour
- our complete Tour Photos Package
- and our Priority Plus Upgrade for back weather cancellations
Prices are $540 for the Priority Plus tours, (with a $40 surcharge for bookings during School Holidays and Public Holidays.)
Our Priority Plus Upgrade absolutely maximises the likelihood your guest will swim with a whaleshark during their visit to Exmouth. Whilst maximising the benefits to agents such as yourself booking with us.
It does this by putting your guests at the very front of the queue to be rebooked onto our next available tour if either:
- their tour is cancelled due to bad weather, or
- there is a mechanical breakdown forcing us to cancel their tour
This service includes us contacting clients on the next day's tour staying for another few days to request they shift to a later tour. We sell a maximum of four Priority Plus Upgrades per tour,

Guests appreciate this as it absolutely maximises the likelihood they will actually get to swim with a Humpback Whale given the time, effort and cost of getting to Exmouth, and the very real likelihood many of them will not have the opportunity to return again.
Agents benefit in that
- you earn a higher commission on the sale (15% of $540 per adult = $81 per guest, rather than 15% of $410 = $61.50 per guest)
- the possibility of you having to lose your commission due to bad weather, or a partial refund is significantly reduced
- the hassles associated with refunds or partial refunds are avoided
- you are able to sell a tour to your customers that is clearly different and better to what they can book with us direct. Experience awe & wonder and swim with a majestic, massive humpback whale - its an experience you will NEVER forget.
Whilst you may also swim with whalesharks or manta rays that our spotter plane finds during your cruise too, this tour is all about getting you swimming with a Humpback Whale. WONDER FULL! From July to 30th September.

Ningaloo Whale Shark Swim is committed to offering you the very best whale swimming tour available on the Ningaloo. Our Spotter Plane Guarantee makes it MUCH more likely your tour will successfully swim with a whale. OUR SPOTTER PLANE STAYS UP UNTIL EITHER YOU HAVE SWUM WITH A WHALE OR THE OCEAN-COMPONENT OF YOUR TOUR ENDS AT 3PM.

Our tour is focused on achieving just one single objective.

To maximize the likelihood our Whale Swimmers will get to swim with a humpback whale. And to do this in a way that gives each and every guest the best possible tour experience possible.
Join the crew previously awarded the Gold Medal for the Best Adventure Tour in WA at the Western Australian Tourism Awards and experience the best of Ningaloo’s humpback whale-swimming and whale-watching. What makes our tour the best whale swimming tour available?

1. We do everything we can to get you swimming with a whale
Our tours are 10 hours long. Not 7 or 5 or 8 like the other whale swimming tours on offer.

And our Spotter Plane Guarantee maximises the chance we will find you a pod of whales to swim with too.
Our exclusive Spotter Plane stays up, spotting the best pods of whales to interact with, until either
a) all onboard have entered the water to swim with a whale, or
b) the open ocean component of your tour ends at 3pm.
What we don't do is only have the spotter plane up for just two or three hours like many other whale swimming tours to save costs - the simple truth is more spotter plane flying time means your chance of swimming with a whale is significantly higher
Why? Because every hour of spotter plane, and every hour of tour length, is CRITICAL to maximizing the likelihood of you swimming with a whale.

Swimming with whales is a numbers game. The more pods of whales our spotter plane pilot finds, the more pods they can evaluate to find the best ones for us to swim with. The more pods of whales our Pilot directs our Boat Skipper to, the more pods of whales the Skipper can evaluate to find one likely to interact with our swimmers. The more attractive pods we find, the more likely it is we will drop a group of swimmers into the water to hopefully interact with the whales. The more groups of swimmers we drop into the water to hopefully interact with the whale, the more groups of swimmers will actually get to swim with a whale.
Going on a whale swimming tour of less than ten hours means you are likely to get substantially fewer drops on likely pods of whales. And choosing one with only two or three hours of spotter plane means you are likely to find less pods of suitable whales to swim with.
Which means your likelihood of swimming with a whale is substantially less.

We also ensure there are no more than seven swimmers in the water with a guide and photographer for any encounter group. Fewer swimmers means less perceived risk and greater group coordination, all of which increases the likelihood of you swimming with a humpback whale.
Less expensive whale tours are less expensive for a reason. Why spend all the time and money getting to Exmouth without doing everything you can to maximize the chance you actually get to swim with a humpback whale?


2. Our tours are about getting the whales to choose to swim with us. Not getting us swimming with the whales.

Our Humpback Whale Swimmers are all trained up to be able to participate in a Soft In-Water Whale Encounters. It’s the single best known way to successfully swim with a whale. Its something Ningaloo Whale Shark Swim strongly supports and we are continually working on getting better and better at.





IMPORTANT :
Please note that all Swimmers MUST be able to snorkel in the open ocean unaided without causing significant splashing or noise. In exceptional circumstances, we reserve the right to remove Whale Swimmers causing significant splashing or noise, or who are unable to keep up with their group in-water, from in-water groups approaching the whales, until such time as all other Swimmers onboard have had the opportunity to swim with a whale. (Basically these swimmers are making it much less likely other whale swimmers onboard will actually get to swim with a whale.) Once all other swimmers have swum with a whale, these customers will be personally escorted towards a whale by their guide, photographer and an additional crew member if an opportunity arises. No refund or guarantee is due or payable in this situation. This is the tour to choose if you are serious about swimming with a whale during your visit to the Ningaloo.

- you are able to sell a tour to your customers that is clearly different and better to what they can book with us direct.
Join Ningaloo Whaleshark Swim’s team of committed, fun-loving and friendly professionals for a day out on the Ningaloo Reef & experience wonder for yourself. Marvel at the size, grace and beauty of the biggest shark, and one of the biggest whales in the world - the humpback whale - as they cruise alongside you through the pristine waters of the Ningaloo Marine Park.
There is so much more out there to enjoy and share with you too! Our tour includes two free snorkels on the Ningaloo Reef for all onboard (corals of all shapes, sizes and colours, and also free snorkeling with manta rays we encounter during our tour as the opportunity arises.
Each swimmer gets to select the best photo taken by our onboard photographer to take away with you for free.
Having our own spotter plane means on average you will get to swim with a whaleshark for around 50% longer than the industry average (Parks and Wildlife monthly reports 2017). Guests on a whaleshark tour that shares a spotter plane with other tours regularly have to wait in a line of boats for their turn to swim with a whaleshark or whale, and then have to get out to let customers on the next boat have a go. NOT with us! Our own plane means your own whaleshark.
We are also the only whaleshark and whale tour company to offer SCUBA dives on the Ningaloo Reef during your tour too - its one of the cheapest dives in Australia ($75) and offers a simple, easy fun-dive on the coral gardens of the inner Ningaloo Reef (5-7m of water) Stunning corals and amazingly diverse sealife await (from huge shovel nosed rays to tiny nudibranches) - its perfect as a warmup if you havent dived for a while or just wanting to take the opportunity to get some bubbles into your bloodstream!;-)


This tour is about swimming with a whaleshark and some stunning whale watching. AND it offers you a MEGA FAUNA GUARANTEE that may be one of the best in the world if we can't find you a whaleshark to swim with.
No whalesharks to swim with on the day of your tour? No problem. Enter the water to swim with a humpback whale instead! If we are unable to find you a whaleshark to swim with on the day of your tour, we will find humpback whales for you to enter the water and swim with instead! (The average Ningaloo humpback whale is twice as long and three times as massive as the average Ningaloo whaleshark... so its not exactly a step backwards!)
WHEN DO WHALESHARKS LEAVE THE NINGALOO?
The simple answer is very occasionally in late July, usually sometime during August or September, and if we are very lucky, in October. (Whalesharks left in October in 2016 and 2017 so we are hopeful they may be staying around for longer... but we don't know this for sure.)
Over the last decade the majority of whalesharks have started leaving the Ningaloo in late July (at the absolute earliest) through to October (in 2016 and 2017.) When this happens really is up to Mother Nature.
The good news is that the latest 2017 research has confirmed that a significant minority of whalesharks (20%) stay around the Ningaloo for months after most of the others have left - and indeed that there may be a permanent Ningaloo whaleshark population. These are the whalesharks we are looking for during our Lost Whalesharks of the Ningaloo Eco Explorer Tour that we start running when most of the whalesharks have left.
