Swimming With Humpback Whales

Humpback whales are one of the larger baleen whale species and range in length from 12 to 16 mtrs.  From June to November, an estimated 30 000 humpbacks migrate along the Ningaloo Coast on their way to and from their breeding and birthing ground in Exmouth Gulf and sheltered waters north as far as the Kimberley. The sight of a Humpback Whale breaching the surface just beyond the breakers of the Ningaloo Reef is another unforgettable spectacle from the comfort of the camp at Sal Salis.

Guests at Sal Salis now have the opportunity to swim with Humpback Whales from August to October each year. The whales are easy to spot as they breach, lunge, slap the water and blow. They will continually move so swimming is required during the interaction;  you will need to be a confident swimmer, able to snorkel and swim freestyle. The whales are found in the open ocean so you may be swimming in current and swell.
