I went out with Ocean Eco Adventures on their humpback swim tour.

Simply put, if you want to swim with whales or any marine megafauna,

Ocean Eco Adventures is your best bet.

Humpback Whales are curious by nature and at times seek interaction with humans, other times we have the pleasure of just observing 

what they do naturally. All interactions are on the whale’s terms and in accordance with our licence conditions. 

We restrict group sizes to a maximum of 7 passengers per group, and use only the best equipment and resources to find and interact with the

most suitable animals, but ultimately the quality and duration of the swim is solely dependent on the whales willingness to be apart of our tour. 

In most cases if a particular pod is not comfortable with our presence we will continue searching to find something that is more cooperative. 

All swimmers taking part in a Swimming Interaction must be over the age of 13, a confident snorkeler, competent swimmer and be able 

to swim efficiently unassisted for extended periods of time.

People wishing to observe are also welcome at a discounted rate. 


Once on board the vessel you will be given a comprehensive safety brief and boat induction. After departure you will be served a light breakfast as we cruise through the Exmouth Gulf. Once you have finished your breakfast you will be given a Whale ecology talk, snorkel briefing and fitted with all necessary equipment. Then it’s time for a snorkel on the reef should you wish. (Whale watchers are invited to participate in any in-water activities apart from the Whale interaction). 

After your snorkel you will be invited to enjoy some morning tea and go through the whale interaction protocol. 

Then its time for action! Our private aircraft will be scouring the reef searching for the best animals for us to interact with. While our Whale swim interaction part of the day is taking place observers will have the opportunity to view whales from the vessel and watch as the swim unfolds.  Our vessel and aircraft have some nifty ways to get swimmers as close to the whales as possible and keep them safe. The swim taking place can be very exciting for observers and it is nothing short of amazing to see the coordination between Aircraft – Boat – Swimmers – Whales, which is unique to Ocean Eco Adventures.   

A company photographer takes photos of the passengers, Humpback Whales and other marine life sighted throughout the day. These photos are then given as a gift to you.

There is also opportunity to search for Turtles, Dolphins, Dugong, Rays, Sea Birds and other marine life throughout the day.

A very talked about feature on all Ocean Eco Adventures cruises is the delicious gourmet food featuring fresh Western Australian produce.

A variety of menu choices are on offer throughout the day with all dietary requirements catered for (with notice).

After lunch we take things much slower and enjoy a cruise through the Gulf whale watching our way home.


Let the Ocean Eco Adventures team guide you through the adventure of a lifetime on the Humpback Whale Swim and full day whale watch.


*It is important to mention that the Whale Watching will come second to in-water activities for the safety of the swimmers. However there will be opportunities for the vessel to focus on Whale Watching at times throughout the day. A large part of the swim is observing the animals’ behaviour from the vessel before the swimmers enter the water. 

The swimmer and whale interaction usually takes place at a distance from the boat so the noise of the vessel won’t distract the whales, which is also for the safety of the swimmers.

 $199 AUD        Observing passenger

 FREE                Child under 3

Take your experience from unforgettable to mind blowing, by adding a flight over the reef to your experience and get 10% off both tours. 


Ocean Eco Adventures realises that many of its customers travel significant distances at considerable cost to participate in its tours.

In recognition of this, on dedicated Humpback Whale swimming interaction tours, we offer 50% off your next Humpback Whale swimming attempt with Ocean Eco Adventures. Seats on Humpback Whale Swim tours are allocated on a first in first served basis and as such it may take several days for a place to become available.

If you can’t get a place on a tour in the time you are in the location or if you prefer, we will issue you a 50% off tour voucher that is valid for three years from the date of issue*. This voucher only includes a repeat of the tour you participated in and is non-transferable.

*Conditions Apply

- All tours are subject to availability, weather and minimum numbers.

- The 50% off voucher is valid for one tour only and is non-transferable.

- If participating in a Microlight flight as part of a tour package the Microlight flight does not include the ‘No Sighting Policy’ as it is not a dedicated animal interaction tour.

- Government fees and charges apply after the first year.



An adult must accompany any passenger under the age of 12 at all times, this includes all in-water activities. Children under the age of 12 are not permitted to be left on the vessel unaccompanied, this includes when an in-water activity is taking place. This may mean it is necessary for adults to take turns in the water if a minor wishes to remain on-board.
