Swimming with humpbacks to continue in Western Australia
September 25 (TravelAndy): Visitors to Ningaloo Marine Park on Western Australia’s mid-north coast can look forward to swimming with humpback whales for at least another two years, with approvals now granted for the in-water interaction trials to continue for the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
Currently under way in Coral Bay and Exmouth, this year’s swimming with humpbacks experience will finish in October.
The tours, which start in August each year, complement the region’s other nature-based offerings such as whale shark swims (March to July), and manta ray interactions which are available year round.
These tours attract a large number of visitors.
