There’s a reason Ningaloo is special and today just highlighted that! Surrounded by humpbacks all day we had the privilege of seeing a calf with mum only weeks old!

The coral bombies were beautiful with heaps of life making snorkelling a delight! So much to find.
This was all topped off by the extraordinary and passionate staff at Kings! With all unique experiences, they were able to handle everyone’s needs!!
To Bill and the crew thanks so much it won’t be forgotten!
Sometimes on a holiday you can be very lucky and make the right decision. Such was the case with our trip on the first day of the season for the... read more whale shark and whale trip. We were able to swim with both sharks and whales and had a surprise visit from a humpback passing within a metre of us. We swam with manta rays as well. The day finished by following a pod of orcas as they hunted and breached close to the boat. Thanks to the crew and great photography by Kelsi.

These guys are fantastic. They know their stuff and were super accommodating of my ankle injury. I am not the strongest swimmer right now and yet I felt safe and... read more didn't miss out on anything. We saw SO many fantastic animals, and even though I know what appears is out of their control, everything that the spotter told the skipper about, he got us there quick as a flash. I loved the fact the tour wasn't just looking for one animal too. We saw whale sharks, manta rays, humpbacks, turtles, and sharks.
Again I really want to emphasise how well they looked after myself, and two other passengers who weren't strong swimmers. We were in great hands. Our guides really seemed to genuinely care about the reef and its inhabitants too, which was nice as it didnt just feel like a tour that was taking advantage of the environment.
Plus the lunch was absolutely top notch!
Spent a fantastic day swimming with these gentle ocean giants. Can not speak highly enough of this tour and the crew.
They go out of their way to ensure... read more you have a fun and informative time ensuring you get maximum swimming time.
Being a novice snorkeler I had concerns prior to entering the water but at all times I was supported and felt safe.
Thank you Kings.

Neither of us swim so we joined as observers and still had a blast. While others were snorkling we sat up on top with Captain Bill, great place to see... read more everything. Photographers paradise. Lunch was excellent and everyone was very friendly and helpful. Couldn't see the whaleshark but did see many other whales, dolphins, rays, turtles. Two thumbs up for the Kings Whale Shark Tour team.

I chose carefully before picking Kings and my cautiousness paid off. A very professional company. day started with an ontime pick up from our resort in Exmouth. Very positive bubbly... read more staff on the bus as we made our way to the marina.Upon heading out to the reef we were lucky enough to see a mantaray and di a brief preliminary snorkel where we saw a turle and many reef fish. This preliminary swim was such that I gained the confidence to jump into the water once a whale shark had been located. Our skipper chose to go further south than many of the 12 licensed boats out on the reef that day. This meant there were fewer of us when our juvenile male was spotted. We enjoyed 5 great swims with the whale shark and at all times felt safe and comfortable.which surprised me as I wasn't convinced I would actually jump into the Indian Ocean in water over 30 metres deep over a kilometre offshore when the time came. Such was the confidence that the crew inspired, I overcame my fears and joined my husband and son in the water on multiple swims. There were 2 young children on our boat too(7 & !0). They too were managed sensitively and confidently. We saw many humpbacks as an added bonus on the day. Would highly recommend Kings.

Picked up from our hotel by our dive masters Alana & Jade and driven by bus to the jetty for the short ride out to the ‘Magellan’ where we met... read more Adam our spotter and deck hand and were given our equipment and had the day explained. A short journey enabled a quick dip and snorkel in the lagoon over coral ‘bombies’ with plentiful fish varieties while the crew checked our abilities for later. Soon we were speeding to the outer reef trying to locate our target whale sharks! After several false alarms, involving sharks diving when approached, we finally had multiple snorkels alongside these giants of the deep. The crew were very caring with a safety first approach and checked regularly for stragglers and wanderers and a roll call was held after each dip to ensure we were all aboard. A delightful lunch was served and cool drinks and fresh water were available the whole trip. The crew were excellent and we were treated to a whale shark circling the boat at one stage, almost posing for the cameras. The trip back to port was rapid and we were soon back on the bus being driven to our hotels with a very satisfied smile on our face! This is an expensive choice but ultimately very rewarding and fantastic value by the end of the afternoon! Well done Kings! More

It was... read more amazing to see some dive down away from us, only to return back to the surface a few minutes later. We were also surprised to see some of them right up close to the vessel, on the surface, as they seemed very inquisitive.
A delicious lunch was served, the staff were very friendly and provided valuable information about the whalesharks. Highly recommend this company for a special experience.

Considering the price you pay for this experience you really set your expectations high for the service delivery from the company. There are so many factors that can make your... read more day amazing , such as the weather forecast and the activity of the wildlife you anticipate to see. These things are uncontrollable by the company.
However, the disappointing thing is the photo package inclusion. We did not bring our own devices so we relied on the photographer capturing our interactions with the whale sharks. We were always last to jump in the water and the photographer was always at the front of the line so she captured mainly the same people with the whale shark.
I felt like my partner and I had so many photo opportunities as individually we were at seperate times so close to the whale shark each the time when we had our dives, but the photographer was just never there.
It would be great if the crew showed a little more crowd control throughout the day and acknowledged that if they hadn’t captured a photo of you that you should become some kind of priority to try and capture a photo, then so on with the next person. But this was not the case. Even when we were on board there were so many other opportunities the photographer could have approached us and took happy snaps throughout the day to remember our experience.
It would be great moving forward if the company offered an option where the price was lower for the photos not to be included, you can then view the photos and choose to purchase them if you are lucky enough to get photos with the whale sharks.
These guys were the best. Did so many things they didn’t have to, to ensure we and the sharks were all safe and winning! I cannot recommend them enough.
Absolutely fantastic crew, service, lunch and trip! They went above and beyond to make the day worth every cent. We got to see so many dolphins, bump back whales, whale... read more sharks, turtles and the rest! 10/10, can not fault!
An absolute must do experience.
Being on and in the water with Kings, you are treated like royalty.
We were on the Swimming With Whalesharks expediece which was fantastic. The... read more Skipper was guided to the swim points by a spotter plane and the crew managed the swim interaction perfectly. Their enthusiasm for their job was infectious!
We were treated to morning tea with fresh fruit and hot/cold drinks in ample supply.
Lunch was a banquet fit for a King!
The day after we were supplied with a link to access ALL 400 photo that Kelsy (Marine Biologist, photographer and real chatterbox) took on the trip.
Other tour operators were no way near with the quality of service according to fellow travellers at our caravan park.
Wow what a fantastic day out on the boat swimming with the majestic beasts. Plenty of great interactions, dugongs, turtles and a massive array of abundant marine wildlife. Great lunch... read more and snacks provided as well. The crew were generally excited to have us and ensure our experience was a special and memerable one. And it sure was. Best day on a boat ive had, and ive had many the world over. Thanks Bill and Team, we will never forget it
