Wave Rider

Ocean-Going Adventures aboard ‘Wave Rider’

Sal Salis partner with Live Ningaloo to offer small group whale shark and humpback whale swimming experiences.   Live Ningaloo offer small group experiences – a maximum of 10 swimmers on board at one time.

‘Wave Rider’  is a Black Watch 40 and was custom built in Queensland, for Australian conditions.   She combines safety and reliability with sea-going ability, comfortable interiors and a spacious back deck.

‘Wave Rider’s’ interiors include two private cabins,  a complete bathroom with hot & cold shower and a beautiful galley from which we will serve delicious snacks and lunches.   She also has a spacious saloon so that if conditions are rough – you’ll be sipping your beverage in style and comfort.

Welcome aboard for

  • Whale Shark Swim Experiences from 01 April to 31 July
  • Humpback Whale Swim Experiences from 01 August to 31 October 2016.    

A spotter plane will be helping us find the whale sharks and as we will have only 10 x swimmers on each whale shark cruise you will not have to wait your turn as you would on the group tour boats.    When it comes to humpback whale swims the maximum number of swimmers in the water at one time is 5 people so with 10 swimmers  we will be splitting the group in two.  Our video-grapher will be on board too – taking wonderful photos of you swimming alongside these gentle giants.
