A sighting of two whalesharks off the coastline last weekend has kickstarted the Whaleshark Season off a little early. No one is complaining as this is the highlight of the year for many tourists.
Travelling from waters unknown the gentle giant is present off the Ningaloo Reef coastline from April to June every year. They can often be up to 12m in lenght, with our two first whalesharks reportedly being around 4-5 meters.
May I advise you all to book your whaleshark dives and tours with the operators early as the boats only take so many and we would hate for your to miss out. The Exmouth Visitor Centre will be able to assist www.exmouthwa.com.au
Just a quick reminder that the Whaleshark Festival is on from May 28-30th. There will be lots of activities around town to inform and excite all our guests.
Happy whaleshark spotting!
