/ Your vessel for the day
Is the ultimate vessel for cruising the Ningaloo reef, surpassing her competitors on all fronts.
Latitude 22 is the most, modern, luxurious, spacious and comfortable vessel the Whale Shark industry has seen to date. She provides the ultimate platform for you to experience your day to the fullest. There is not one aspect of the vessel that has not been designed to surpass your needs. Huge upper and lower decks to give you the freedom to move around and soak in the view. The largest and lowest swim board to assist you safely on and off the vessel with ease. Latitude 22 is designed to perform in any weather conditions at speed, maximising your in-water time and minimising travel time. This also enables a larger operational area than the rest of the fleet providing the highest chance of success. Her manoeuvrability completely eliminates the need for an auxiliary (assistance vessel)
