Ningaloo Reef

Ningaloo Reef on Western Australia’s mid north coast, has gained an impressive reputation as one of Earth’s last ocean paradises. UNESCO World Heritage listed Ningaloo Coast is a stunning and unique contrast between reef and arid landscape, with its lush and colourful underwater scenery and more than 200km of spectacular coral reef set against a rugged limestone coast. It is also one of the largest fringing reefs in the world and unlike many others, is accessed just by stepping off the beach.

Ningaloo is home to migrating whale sharks from April to June and its diverse marine life is impressive. Here you can find manta rays, three different turtle species, humpback whales, dugongs, potato cod and hundreds of other different fish species.

Ningaloo Reef comprises 200 species of hard corals and 50 species of soft corals with over 520 species of fish. The reef’s close proximity to the shoreline means it is easily accessible, and makes it a diver and snorkellers paradise. The Ningaloo Marine Park stretches 260 kilometres from Bundegi Reef near the town of Exmouth to Amherst Point near Coral Bay in the south and encompasses a massive 5,000 square kilometres of ocean.

Swim with whale sharks, snorkel and dive the reefs, or just wander along the white sandy shoreline exploring the crystal clear waters for an appreciation and close up view of the aquatic world and nature at its best.

Days 2-3
Ningaloo Reef

When timed correctly, your primary activity will no doubt be snorkelling with whale sharks. With just a small group you head out by boat. A spotter plane meanders overhead in search of the mighty whale sharks. Once one (or more) is located, you are dropped in the water ahead of its path. Here you wait as a monstrous creature swims towards you. The exercise is repeated once the whale shark has swum by allowing for maximum time in the water.
