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

These folks are the real thing and made an outstanding experience especially memorable. There are a number of whale shark operators in Exmouth and Live Ningaloo is one of the newer ones – don’t let that deter you – they are outstanding in every respect. I highly recommend and thank them for such a wonderful and memorable day. 30/04/17

We had an amazing day swimming with whale sharks. To be honest, when we initially booked from Sydney we felt that the fee was a little ‘pricey’. But once we saw what was involved in getting us up close with the whale sharks and how much effort the crew made to give us an amazing experience, we would have been happy to do it all again and felt that the day was great value for money. Thank you! We hope to be back one day! 17/04/17

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

As an experiential travel provider, Sal Salis seeks to immerse guests in the natural world, and help them learn more about Australia’s unique flora, fauna, conservation challenges and our varied landscapes. For almost all our guests one of the highlights of their stay is a day exploring beyond the Reef – in the early part of our season the quest is to swim with whale sharks, later in the year it becomes all about humpback whales and throughout the year there are manta rays, dolphins, other fish and whale species, rare dugong sightings and much more. From its inception Live…
