Ningaloo Reef Marine Park, in Western Australia, is quite possibly our favourite place in the world. The world’s largest fringing reef is a 260km long world heritage listed site. Home to sea turtles, manta rays, tropical fish, stunning corals and of course the world’s biggest fish, the whale shark.
Swimming with whale sharks was always right up near the top of our bucket list, so a trip to this incredible part of the world was really a dream come true. Peak whale shark season is around April to August, so we flew from Perth up to Exmouth in July for a 5 day trip to the Ningaloo region. We headed out on our whale shark trip with 3 Islands Whale Shark Dive, they were excellent and fully recommended.
We had brilliant swims on the day and saw more whale sharks than we can even remember.
