Three Islands Marine Charters

Let Three Islands Marine Charters take you on one of the most exhilarating experiences of your life as you snorkel with the whale sharks of Ningaloo Reef.

From April to July join the friendly Three Islands team on this fantastic full day tour departing from Exmouth. The tour begins as the courtesy bus delivers you from your accommodation to our spacious 17 metre vessel, Draw Card, where the helpful crew equip you with all the gear you will need for your snorkel adventure with the whale sharks. The day starts with a snorkel on the reef where, depending on the time of year, you may find yourself amongst graceful manta rays as they glide along the reef or marine life such as turtles, dolphins, colourful fish and corals.

The tour price includes all snorkel gear and wetsuits, a delicious buffet lunch plus beverages and snacks through the day. A spotter plane guides the vessel to the whale sharks and a safety zodiac is close by as you snorkel. Also aboard is a videographer who films the day’s adventure and then creates a DVD for you to purchase as a memento of your experience.

You will be accompanied in the water by a qualified dive master/instructor who will guide you on this unique wildlife interaction with the whale sharks. These experienced, professional staff makes each tour a fun and informative experience. Three Islands Marine Charters offer a relaxed, friendly service with a focus on customer satisfaction and safety.

From July to November Three Islands Marine Charters also offer group surfing safaris and fishing charters along the Ningaloo Reef coast and through the northern islands. Please contact us for further information.
