Enjoy a relaxed transfer from Learmonth (Exmouth) Airport to Coral Bay in a spacious, air-conditioned 11 seater minibus. You will board “Shore Thing” at the local marine facility for a 4pm departure. Should timing allow, enjoy a late afternoon snorkel, or dive, before enjoying a cool drink as the sunsets and the vessel sails to its overnight anchorage.
Following breakfast, enjoy a morning snorkel at “Pandora’s Garden”, a beautiful coral garden exhibiting stunning plate coral formations and home to numerous marine turtles. After morning tea, set sail for our next snorkel location where we see reef sharks and rays getting cleaned. We snorkel along sandy underwater pathways fringed by hard coral outcrops rising to the waters surface. Enjoy a freshly prepared gourmet buffet lunch before immersing yourself into Ningaloo’s clear waters or relaxing on the deck of Shore Thing. The day winds down with another snorkel before a sumptuous two-course meal. At the end of each day review your photos or the images the crew has collected over the day of the various species of reef fish and corals.
Learn and discuss the unique behaviours of the marine creatures you have observed and get some advice on the best way to interact and experience the best that Ningaloo has to offer.
Sailing north into Chabjuwardoo Bay we navigate via Stanley Pool and explore the edge of the contrasting waters where the sand has been shaped by the waters movement to form distinct pools of deep blue water. We seek out dugongs, dolphins and whales (seasonal) as we travel to our day’s snorkelling and diving destinations. With multiple opportunities to snorkel numerous coral gardens, your crew and guides will select the best sites based on the conditions. Snorkel and Dive sites along this section of the reef are only visited by Shore Thing and have been personally named by the crew. Some of the favourites include “The Fishbowl”, “Holey Moley”, “Turtle Pond” and “Lost City”.
After breakfast, step ashore and explore the ruins of the historic whaling station at Norwegian Bay, abandoned in the 1950’s. Learn about life in the whaling days on this remote stretch of coastline. Following our land excursion snorkel the “Finn Shipwreck”, an old whaling chaser. We seek out dugongs and dolphins as we travel to our afternoon snorkelling and diving destinations, which could include “The Green Mile”, a feeding ground for green turtles. This afternoon step ashore at Point Cloates and enjoy watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean with a birds eye view from the top of the sand dunes, before returning to Shore Thing for the evening.
After breakfast enjoy a leisurely kayaking trip along the secluded coastline of Jane’s Bay, keeping an eye out for large rays resting and turtles feeding in the shallow waters. Your crew and guides will then select the best snorkel or dive sites based on the conditions; some of the favourites include “Cloates Corner”, “The Benan Shipwreck” and “Central Station”, seeing hundreds of species of colourful reef fish and a good chance to see reef sharks and turtles cruising by. We seek out dugongs and dolphins as we travel to our evening’s anchorage at Point Maud. From June – October there is a fantastic opportunity to observe Humpback Whales as they migrate along the Ningaloo coast.
Enjoy a presentation from your guide on Manta Ray biology and behaviour. Following a safety briefing, snorkel with one of these graceful rays where you can assist identifying the Manta Rays via photo identification. Before a buffet lunch, enjoy one last snorkel or dive at “Asho’s Gap” which is a cleaning station for grey reef sharks. Watch as the sharks swim in to a large cabbage coral and hold themselves in the currents with their mouths open, whilst small cleaner fish dart in and out of their mouths and gills.
Return to Coral Bay approximately 12:30pm for your transfer to your accommodation and spend the afternoon relaxing on the beach, wandering through the sand dunes or simply enjoying a cool beverage at one of the local cafes or bars.
Meet at 7:30am to join your complimentary transfer to the jetty again and board your vessel to go in search of the largest fish in the ocean …. the graceful Ningaloo Whale Sharks. Swimming along with these gentle giants is simply an incredible encounter you will always remember. A spotter plane is used to guide the vessels to the Whale Shark therefore maximizing the success rate. The dedicated crew is passionate about the conservation and research of the mystical creatures of the deep. Return to your accommodation for your final night reminiscing on the adventure of a lifetime!
Meet your transfer back to Learmonth Airport at your allotted time to catch your Qantas flight back to Perth and beyond with special memories of your time on the Ningaloo Reef.
