Moments Of Magic

Jun 19, 2018

Sal Salis offers the amazing opportunity to swim with not only whale sharks but also humpback whales for a limited period as they pass through Ningaloo Reef.

Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia is world-renowned for being one of the most accessible and reliable places in the world to swim with Whale Sharks. Sal Salis' preferred operator, Live Ningaloo, offers small, bespoke group tours to get up close and personal with whale sharks each year between late March and end of July. Tours are limited to ten passengers to ensure all on board have a wonderful, once-in-a-lifetime experience with these graceful marine giants.

Ningaloo has solidified its reputation as being a mecca for massive marine experiences over the past few years. Not only can you swim with whale sharks here, you can also swim with humpback whales from August to October.

So, if you visit Sal Salis outside of the whale shark season, you can still get the adrenaline rush of having a close encounter with a gentle giant of the ocean. Swimming with humpback whales has only been offered at Ningaloo Reef since 2016, so Sal Salis guests have the opportunity to be among the first of many to enjoy this unique experience. Guests can join a Live Ningaloo tour to take a dip with magnificent humpback whales between 1 August and 31 October.

While whale sharks and humpback whales pass through the Ningaloo Marine Park annually on a seasonal basis, majestic manta rays can be encountered here all year round. Manta rays have a wing span of up to 5.5 metres wide and watching them ‘dance’ is truly mesmerising.

Luckily for guests, Sal Salis is located within a short stroll of one of the best parts of Ningaloo Reef. Measuring around 300km in length, Ningaloo Reef is one of the largest fringing reef systems in the world. It’s called a ‘fringing reef’ because it’s so close to shore, which means in some parts you can literally step off the beach and start snorkelling within moments of entering the water.
