Early August - Mid October
8:15am to 4:00pm
Set alongside the rugged red limestone ranges of Cape Range, the sparkling waters of Ningaloo Reef is an underwater coral playground for an array of marine life. Spend an unforgettable day immersed in the beauty of the coral coast.
Have the chance to swim with gentle whale sharks, watch manta rays backflip and glide underneath you and a technicolour dream of tropical fish surround you (hi Nemo!).
Marvel at the turtles and reef sharks that meander alongside you on the white sandy ocean floor, and watch dolphins leap and play on the surface as you cruise under wonderous blue skies.

Your day starts at approximately 8.15 am when our comfortable and air-conditioned courtesy bus picks you up from your Exmouth accommodation for the 36-kilometre trip to the Tantabiddi Boat Ramp. Sit back and enjoy the scenery as your guide provides information on local landmarks, history and great facts about the stunning Ningaloo Reef and its inhabitants. The day’s program is also outlined, helping to ensure you feel relaxed, informed and comfortable about the upcoming events.
Time to hop on board your new home for the day, one of our safe and modern vessels. Our friendly crew will get you ready with snorkel equipment and wetsuits, and give an introductory safety briefing.
Sit back and relax as we cruise through the lagoon before you plunge into the crystal clear waters of the inner Ningaloo Reef. Have the chance to see a turtle swim past, sting rays resting in the sand, and a myriad of colourful fish amongst the Ningaloo coral. If required, assistance and snorkel tuition can be provided by your tour guides.
Following the morning snorkel, the vessel fires into life as we head to the outer reef in the search of Ningaloo’s marine life; dolphins, dugongs, manta rays, humpback whales and, of course, hopefully some whale sharks to swim with!
Our spotter plane will be overhead on the lookout for us.
Enjoy a delicious morning tea, buffet lunch and afternoon platters in between the sightings.
If time permits, we head back to the inner reef to conclude the day with another reef snorkel somewhere else on the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef.
A fruit and cheese platter finishes off the day as we head back to Tantabiddi for the journey back to your accommodation, returning approximately 3.30–4.00pm.
