We went to Exmouth in March/April 2013. We called 2 weeks before arriving in Exmouth and the Receptionist was so lovely over the phone. We called around several charter boats but Ningaloo dreaming had the best to offer in terms of price, guarantee and availability.
The crew members were lovely, accomodating and attended to each and every customer on the boat. I liked that they got to know each and everyone of us - the group was so diverse - families, young couples, mature couples, international tourists. They all took the time to get to know us and make sure that we were all ok and happy. They were very informative about Exmouth providing lots of education info right from when they picked us up from our hotel talking to us about the navy pier, the light house, the reef - right through to being on the boat and talking about all the different types of sea creatures we would come across!
The spotter plane was the company's and not rented which meant that we got first dibs on the whale sharks which meant more swimming time! We spotted our first whale shark and headed off - we were the only ones in the site and the staff made sure that everyone got a good swim, it wasnt long before another charter boat turned up but our spotter plane had spotteed ANOTHER whale shark that was bigger so we went to find it! Again we were the only ones there so we all got a good amount of swim time and by the end we were all exhausted!! After spending a couple of hours with the whaleshark, our amazing spotter plane found ANOTHER whaleshark! After feeling a little seasick and being exhausted from swimming with 2 whalesharks I had no interest in swimming again however the friendly Skipper encouraged me to as it was a BABY whaleshark 2.5m! I am so glad I did because it was such an incredible experience! The staff were amazing!! They fed us plenty of food and drinks and didnt leave until we were all satisfied! That wasnt the end though, after asking everyone on the boat countless times if we had seen enough of whalesharks, they eventually took us to shallow waters to enjoy snorkelling. We saw turtles, reef sharks, sting rays and plenty of fish. Safety was always number one and the crew were very attentive and made it their priority to make sure we were ok and happy. I highly recommend Ningaloo Reef Dreaming whether you want to swim with whalesharks or not - it is the BEST day you will ever have and the BEST way to experience Exmouth and Ningaloo Reef. They cater to everyone! There was a young family with kids under the age of 5 and they had the best time also! The crew also had a camera and were always taking photos of everyone. I even lost my camera in the water and the crew found it!!! I can't wait to come back!!
