There are definitely a few options when you decide you’re ready to take the plunge and swim with the biggest fish in the ocean, but none quite like us!
Our Whale Shark License was awarded to us. That’s right, we didn’t buy the rights to provide you with this experience we earned it! Our license was the first to be released in years and after the hefty process of sifting through many applicants, the Department of Parks and Wildlife decided that due to our high standards, long running reputation in the Eco Tourism industry, our extensive knowledge, and passion for Whale Sharks and the marine environment, we deserved to operate these tours. Team that with a strong and vibrant crew who retain their position with Ningaloo Discovery season after season and it’s clear that this isn’t just our job, it’s our life. We want to share with you everything that makes us happy, excites us, and invite you to play in our very own aquatic backyard that we call home. Our Ningaloo Discovery family is fast growing, with most guests who join us returning year after year, because they trust us, it’s worth every minute!
Excited to kick start the season on the 20th of March 2016! Bring on the best season yet with Ningaloo Discovery operated by Charter 1!
