Coral spawning & whale sharks (WA)

When a year, on a full moon in March, the waters of World Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef become a veritable dining experience for sealife, as in excess of 200 types of corals produce their brilliantly hued polyps. Masses of krill and other small marine animals swarm on the reef to benefit from the produce, pulling in bigger guests to Ningaloo over the next months, including the delicate goliaths of the ocean – whale sharks. Whale sharks can grow up to an amazing 16 meters in length and gauge 30 tons or more. Among March and July (some of the time longer), they go through their days lounging along the reef and benefiting from stuffed krill, giving jumpers and snorkellers the phenomenal rush of swimming nearby these wonderful animals. Many depict it as a lowering and groundbreaking knowledge.
