29274b8f-bb2f-4f8e-a697-32fab8a45e40Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef, located within the pristine world heritage Cape Range National Park near Exmouth, is pleased to announce it is one of the first few operators in Western Australia to be granted a licence enabling it to offer its guests the chance to swim with humpback whales next year from 01 August to 31 October 2016.

This exhilarating day long experience will be conducted on a new vessel being introduced to Sal Salis in time for next year’s season. The boat will comfortably cater for ten guests – the maximum number of swimmers allowed with the humpbacks and whale sharks at any one time – along with an expert guide, delicious lunch, drinks and snorkelling equipment included on board.

This experience will complement the whale shark swim excursions on Ningaloo Reef already on offer during the season from 01 April to 31 July 2016.

And the news doesn’t stop there.  Sal Salis will be increasing its accommodation from nine to 16 en-suited tents.

Being situated within Cape Range National Park, the camp operates under strict guidelines requiring minimal impact on the environment with the camouflaged tents sitting above ground and accessed through a network of boardwalks. A deck at the front of the tents will allow guests to enjoy the spectacular views of the ocean and feel its cooling sea breeze.

The generously proportioned, solar powered tents provide guests with a few of life’s luxuries including quality bedding with organic linens and locally produced, herb-infused, chemical free toiletries, but no internet connection, television or mobile phone service allowing guest to truly switch off and relax.

Guests can immerse themselves in the amazing diversity of fauna, flora and marine life through the various guided activities including walks in the Park, snorkelling and kayaking on the Reef.


Dining is an inspired and delicious communal event at Sal Salis, showcasing the best seasonal, local and native produce accompanied by excellent Western Australian wines and matched only by the stunning views and convivial atmosphere.

Prices start from $750 per person per night (twin share) and include accommodation, all meals, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, use of snorkel equipment, wetsuits as well as Sal Salis wilderness activities: guided snorkels, kayaking, kayak snorkels and guided walks. Prices for the swim with humpback whales and whale shark experiences will start from $500 per person.
