Itinerary

Day 1: Whale Shark Snorkelling Adventure Tour

Upon arrival at the Tandabiddi boat ramp you’ll be safely transported via dingy to the purpose built luxury vessel ‘The Magellan’. As you step on board you’ll be welcomed by the rest of the crew, provided with all equipment needed for the day and inducted in all safety aspects of the vessel. With introductions and briefings all done, you’ll find yourself wandering around the deck and bow of the boat, marvelling at the views of the beautiful turquoise waters of the Ningaloo Reef. Keep an eye out for friendly dolphins or maybe a dugong on the way through the lagoon! Arriving at the first snorkel spot you’ll notice how clear the water is and the colours of the fish as they dart in and out of the coral structures. With trained in-water guides by your side, there’s nothing left to do but enjoy the sights of the coral reef gardens and the hundreds of species of fish that can be found. Regardless of your swimming ability and experience, you are in safe hands and need not worry about missing out. During this time, a spotter plane will ascend above to search for the main attraction of the day, the majestic Whale shark. You’ll be grinning from ear to ear after your snorkel experience, and while you make your way back onto the boat you can sense the excitement of what lies ahead. Once a Whale Shark has been sighted, it’s time to get ready as the boat makes its way over to the area! Lined up on the back deck in your snorkel gear, you wait anxiously for the signal from your trusty guide that it’s time to jump in. The Skipper and guides will position you so that the Whale Shark will swim by you, allowing you to swim alongside the shark once it’s passed. Despite the many years of waiting for that moment, nothing prepares you for the first time you see a big, beautiful Whale Shark approaching. At first you may be taken aback by the size of this magnificent creature, but most noticeable is how calm and gentle these giants actually are. They 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! And for the rest of your life you will remember that moment. The delicate spots and stripes patterned along their body, the graceful movements of their huge tail, the schooling fish that often occupy their underside, and the vast, deep blue surroundings as they disappears from sight into an endless sea. The whole experience may not even feel real until later on when you’ve had time to process what an incredible thing you’ve just done! Once the time with whale sharks concludes, the day continues with a delicious, fresh lunch on board provided, that caters to all dietary needs. And to top off the day, one more final snorkel on another coral garden inside the lagoon. If you have the energy left! From there it’s time for a return journey back on the bus, where you are warmly farewelled by crew that feel like old friends by the end of the day. We truly hope we can take you on this adventure of a lifetime very soon!

"We loved our two days in Kakadu. Loved opportunities to enjoy waterholes, spectacular views, landforms, rocks, trees, birds, unfortunately, no crocodiles! Tom our guide was generous with his time, effort and knowledge. Thanks to him we had an enjoyable time and learned much about Aboriginal art and history and about the environment
of Kakadu. We loved sleeping under the stars!"
