Swim with the biggest fish in the world in the best location in the world!
Every year, between March and July, the Ningaloo Reef hosts up to 600 whale sharks, making this one of the best places in the world to spot these gentle giants in the wild. And for over 30 years, Kings Ningaloo Reef Tours have been the best operators in the region, delivering 5-star comfort while allowing guests to get up close to Whale Sharks, Manta Rays, Spinner Dolphins, Dugongs, Turtles and a myriad of other amazing marine life.
Your day aboard the luxury vessel, the "Magellan" starts with some snorkelling in the lagoon or outer reef, which is home to hundreds of species of fish. Overhead, the spotter plane will look for whale sharks. Once found, you'll be collected and positioned in the water so that the whale sharks will swim by you, allowing you to swim alongside the shark once it has passed. Whale sharks are the only marine creature in the world that allow such a close and prolonged, wild interaction without being disturbed or changing course. It feels as though they are choosing to swim with you!
With a professional photographer on hand, the quality of your captured memories will be second to none. Once you're all snorkelled out, enjoy a delicious buffet lunch onboard. There's still time for one more snorkel on another coral garden inside the lagoon - if you have the energy! Then it is time to farewell your friendly crew and start reminiscing about your amazing day on the reef!

We went to see whale sharks with Kings. They guaranteed that we would see whale sharks and that we did. We went in to swim with them 6 or so times. The conditions were perfect that day: water was clear and calm, and the whale sharks were slow so we were able to keep up with them. In addition to whale sharks, we saw a humpback whale, dolphins, flying fish and a turtle on the boat ride. An absolutely memorable day.
Kings looked after us from beginning to end. Picked up, fitted with wetsuit, snorkel and mask, two test dives over beautiful coral with lots of fish, then 5 dives with the whale sharks. I was a bit slow but the dive leader made sure I got a chance to swim next to the whale shark. They kept us topped up with snacks, drinks and a delicious lunch. Plus Kelsy their photographer took some wonderful images that came as part of the package. Highly recommended.
We went on the whaleshark tour on May 25th. We advised upon booking that my partner had never snorkelled and the team on the day took the time to make sure she was given the guidance required. Jade was fantastic and patient and really looked after my partner through the learning phases over the reef and then through the dives. Adam and Jade were also fantastic and helpful during my multiple bouts of sea sickness. The team was so experienced, patient , professional and friendly. I can't fault the full team who were just fantastic. The photos taken on the day were excellent too. Thank you.
From the moment we were picked up by Jade and Alana, who were so happy and upbea, we were so well looked after. From pointing out emus along the roadside to a bit of history of the area it was a fun way to start the most amazing day of our holiday. We were taken out to the Magellan by Adam, who proved to be a fabulous and friendly helper all day. Dan our captain was so professional and so spot on ensuring we had the best opportunity to swim with the whale sharks. Kelsey our marine biologist and awesome photographer was brilliant and fun. Now the whale sharks need a mention - SO GRACEFUL AND IMPRESSIVE. All up with such a fabulous crew and so organised no one was left out. We would highly recommend Kings you get what you pay for, exceptional day, exceptional service and memories to last forever. Thanks guys, Yeah Baby !!!
This is a truly special experience to swim with some of the monsters of the sea. The whale sharks are amazing, we swam with about six different whale sharks up to 9 metres long. Kings run a very professional tour, the staff are really friendly and knowledgeable about the animals and their environment, the pick up, boat and food on board were all great and nothing was a problem. Would highly recommend this tour in any visit to the area.
