My wife and I went on 3 Islands' Humpback Interaction Tour and two weeks ago and it was fabulous. The tour was run by three great young women who took very good care of us on the boat and in the water. They worked very hard, along with the spotter plane, to locate numerous whales, and made sure both groups had close encounters. We also saw lots of marine life, including corals, fish, turtles, mantas, porpoises and, of course, humpbacks. Amazing to be so close to such beautiful creatures. Highly recommend 3 Islands.

So grateful for an amazing day with the 3 islands team for a humpback whale tour.
The crew are welcoming, friendly ,professional and passionate about what they do.
The team went to great lengths to ensure that everyone aboard had a great day. It testing wind conditions the team worked hard and stuck at it to produce amazing whale encounters for all . Well done to the team. I will definitely recommend you and think I will be back for a whaleshark tour

My friend and I went on the Humpback Whale tour in early October, 2018 and were thrilled with the experience. The three guides and captain were all very knowledgeable and friendly, food was excellent and the wildlife was beautiful.

It was a well managed, professional experience from start to finish and I can't recommend 3 Islands more highly.

Wow...what a day !!
The moment we were picked up in the transfer bus, we were made to feel comfortable and like part of the crew-family. The staff were so warm, friendly and very helpful and supportive to anyone who needed it.
There were 2 snorkelling opportunities on the inner reef to get comfortable with the equipment.
We went to the outer reef and swam with 2 Whale Sharks. We had ample swim time with each gentle giant. We were given clear (and very creative) instructions on the snorkelling process and safety for a fun and exhilarating interaction.
We were also fortunate enough to see whales, turtles, sharks and sting rays. The fish and coral on the inner reef were colourful and bountiful.
Morning tea and lunch were well catered with plenty of options for vegetarians. The food was fresh and tasty.
The free CD or USB(BYO) of photos was an excellent bonus. Great quality photography to capture the memories of the day, with images of every person on the tour.
We had such a great day and would definitely do this day trip again when we return to Exmouth.

Hi All, you know how it is - you see some fantastic pictures on the companies homepage but when YOU do the tour it is very different and there is nothing you get to see. But not with 3IslandsWhaleSharks! This was the best thing I ever did in my life! TRUST ME! This is the best organized tour I ever did on this plant. The team is so well prepared that everything was just a pleasure. The boat, the tour, the team, the pictures, the food - we did plenty of other tours after this but nothing could keep up with this. We have seen whale sharks, whale sharks and whale sharks - did 5 rounds of snorkeling and got unbelievable pictures. Whenever I look at them today, I can't believe we did this. On the way back we met 2 Humpback wales and got the full show. They were very curious and where approaching the boat. Wow, this was great. I am sure the other tour provides are great as well but my heart is with 3Island. Thanks folks for this unforgettable adventure.

Just had a brilliant day swimming with humpbacks. Although windy and visibility was abit poor, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience today and we were overwhelmed when one Mum and Bub swam very close below us. Saw so many whales breaching and playing close to the boat it felt like a whale freeway. Loved the enthusiasm Aimee and Kate still obviously have for their job and Noss was a top notch skipper!

Hi ginabrendan,

Thank you very much for your kind words and taking the time to review us on TripAdvisor.

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your time on board despite the wind that day, and that got to see a humpback whale and her calf swim close by. So lucky! :)

Warm regards

Had an extraordinary day and would highly recommend this company if you want to dive with the whale sharks. Our skipper Cait was extremely accomplished at placing the boat, Georgia and Chris's made our time on board and in the water safe and fun, Aimee took excellent underwater photos of us all that were provided complimentary and Nos kept everyone in line. We were lucky enough to swim with the whale shark 3 times, swam with a Loggerhead Turtle, followed some humpback whales and saw a Manta Ray. I can't rate the experience provided high enough, do yourself a favour, this is a once in a lifetime experience!

What a great crew, what a great day - it couldn't have been better.
My wife and I did the whale shark snorkelling trip on the 30/7/18.
The crew were passionate, knowledgeable and fun. We had 4 great swims with the whale sharks. The lunch was also great.
This experience was number 1 on my bucket list and this crew made sure we weren't disappointed.
We didn't have smiles off our faces the whole day.

We went on the Humpback Interaction tour. A fantastic day of swimming with six different humpbacks, including a mother and calf.Needless to say, this was a day that my partner and I will never forget. I couldn’t recommend this more.
