This is a phenominal area for swimming/diving, and not well known even inside Aus. The reef, coral bay, monkey mia, and shark bay are definitely places you should never go to (so I can enjoy them better on my own):smiling:

Swimming alongside one of these beasties is a highlight I will never forget.
But just so anyone does not do anything wrong - touching them is risky for the whale - so it is actually prohibited.
