5 Night Ningaloo Escape – 2nd August 2023

In the heart of our ongoing oceanic odyssey, the story continues with our 5-night tour that departed on 2nd August. Even more astonishing moments teeming with life and enchantment showcasing our guests the ocean’s secrets.

Elegant slate sweetlips and striped catfish that moved in perfect harmony. Turtles, with their timeless serenity, glided by, casting an aura of peace. The majesty of mantas – graceful giants that unfolded their wings like underwater butterflies. Nearby, silent stingrays glided with an effortless elegance that left us in awe of the ocean’s perfection.

The northern wobbegong and the tasselled wobbegong, masters of camouflage teaching us that beauty often lies in the hidden corners. In the playground of the currents, juvenile batfish played like the children of the sea.

Yet our adventure wasn’t confined to the underwater alone. We wandered back in time, visiting the ruins of the whaling station, where history and the present intertwined, telling stories of the past in the whispers of the wind. Continuing with the historical we returned to the ocean to explore the remnants of the Fin shipwreck. The past lay silent beneath the waves, its mysteries inviting us to unravel their tales.

A rare ornate ghost pipefish graced us with its presence, a celestial being, while octopuses took centre stage, showcasing their intelligence and agility. A rare sea snail caller Bailer shell emerged, a treasure of the ocean that reminded us of the ocean’s ability to surprise.

However, watching the agile tawny nurse shark embark on a stealthy hunt, had to be THE most amazing highlight of the tour. A glimpse into the predator’s world that left us in awe.

Clouds painted intricate patterns across the sky, and the stunning orange colours as the sun set were a reminder that nature’s beauty knows no bounds.

This tour was a testament to the wonders of what lies beneath the waves and above the skies at Ningaloo. What an epic aquatic adventure ????????????????????
