This was an experience I have waited 27 years to have… so I did my research! Thank goodness we chose Live Ningaloo. Apart from the incredible, kind, knowledgeable crew, the delicious lunch, the amazing photos we can keep forever, we actually got a huge amount of time with the sharks. … Couldn’t recommend it more. 15/05/2017

A bucket list item and we can’t thank this team enough…only 10 guests allowed on the boat, more intimate/personal experience both with them and the whale sharks. 12/10! Would definitely recommend – we did it twice it was so good! Also – I’m in a wheelchair and despite being their first “wheelly” they coped brilliantly. Everyone on the boat had a brilliant time – entertaining, environmentally considerate and worth every cent. 31/05/17

My husband and I, visiting Australia from Canada…. We are an older couple and I am currently waiting for a right total hip replacement. I need not have worried! Live Ningaloo had me covered, and thanks to Murray, Chris, Doug (a.k.a “The Strong Arm Man of the Indian Ocean”, to me), and Nat, the amazing young guide who looked after us both days, we had an unforgettable experience swimming with the gentle giants, the whale sharks.

As others have noted before, the Live Ningaloo team are a wonderful blend of professional, relaxed, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate – about making sure every guest on board has the best opportunity to not only swim with the whale sharks and humpback whales, but learn so much about the treasure that is Ningaloo Reef. We also saw manta rays, flying fish, sea snakes, and marine birds galore. The luxury is they have a maximum of 10 guests on board at any one time, all of whom can be in the water with the whales sharks every time if they want.…

This is the most amazing trip! This ranks alongside hot air balloons over the Namib at sunrise to kayaking down the Canaima river. An extraordinary adventure and the crew of Live Ningaloo made it all the more exceptional. Completely personalized service, really knowledgeable crew, lovely boat and a sense of fun (yet responsibility) which was infectious. Can’t thank the Live Ningaloo team enough for all that they did to make this experience so special. If you are going to do this adventure, do it with Live Ningaloo. Even if it costs more, it is worth every penny (and more) for…
