Day-by-Day Itinerary

*Package can be offered in reverse at times, with your Sail Ningaloo tour preceding your stay at Sal Salis.

Day 1 – 3, Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef

Arrive Learmonth/Exmouth airport (flight not included) and meet your road transfer to Sal Salis for a 3 night stay.

Accommodation is in eco-luxury wilderness tents designed to blend with the dunes and low lying coastal scrub, offering comfortable beds, eco-ensuite bathroom, drinking water and a daily cleaning service. The Lodge is the social heart of the camp raised above the dunes offering a stunning view of the Ningaloo Reef and Indian Ocean. Here you’ll enjoy the all-inclusive meals, open bar with a selection of alcoholic & non-alcoholic beverages.

Enjoy a range of daily guided activities provided in-house by Sal Salis guides including gorge walking, kayaking and snorkeling trips, or simply just relax and unwind. Self-guide kayak, paddle board and snorkel just off your camp, with more than 500 species of colourful fish and 250 coral types. Above ground there is plenty of unique Australian fauna that live in the Cape Range, such as rock wallabies, red kangaroos, euros, eighty species of reptiles, and over one hundred species of birds.

Optional: Join a whale shark day tour during the season (Mar-Aug*additional charges apply).

Day 4, Scenic Flight to Coral Bay

Depart from the historical Yardie Homestead for a 45 minute scenic flight adjacent to the Cape Range and along the Ningaloo Reef coastline. You might spot turtles, reef sharks, dugongs, whales sharks, manta rays and humpback whales from a birds eye view. Once you touch down at the Coral Bay airstrip, take the short transfer to board Shore Thing for a 4pm departure. Enjoy a late afternoon snorkel or scuba dive near Five Fingers reef before enjoying a magical sunset over the Indian Ocean as the vessel sails to its overnight anchorage.

Day 5

Following breakfast, enjoy a morning snorkel at a site such as The Stag Forest, a beautiful coral garden exhibiting stunning branching coral formations and home to numerous marine turtles. After morning tea set sail for another exhilarating snorkel or scuba dive location, where you will have the chance to see reef sharks and turtles cruising by or large rays resting as we explore sandy underwater pathways fringed by hard coral outcrops rising to the waters surface. Enjoy a freshly prepared buffet lunch and relax on the deck, whilst keeping a look out for playful dolphins or shy dugong. The day isn’t over yet, enjoy a late afternoon snorkel or dive when the reef’s inhabitants are winding down. As the sun sets, indulge in a sumptuous dinner and share memories of the day’s underwater adventures.

Day 6

Your crew and guides will select the best snorkel and dive sites based on the conditions. Ningaloo Reef boasts a mind-boggling variety of fish, turtles, and colourful coral formations, making every dive or snorkel an unforgettable adventure. You may like to enjoy a leisurely kayak or SUP, keeping an eye out for large rays resting and turtles feeding in the shallow waters. Between June and October there is a fantastic opportunity to observe Humpback Whales as they migrate along the Ningaloo coast.

Day 7

Ningaloo Reef and Coral Bay is home to a resident population of coastal Manta Rays that frequent the inner reef to mate, give birth and feed. Enjoy a discussion on Manta Ray biology and behavior along the Ningaloo Reef with your guide, whilst we search for these graceful rays to snorkel with. Before a sumptuous buffet lunch, enjoy one last snorkel or scuba dive at the fascinating Asho’s Gap, 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 with the option to catch the afternoon flight departing Learmonth airport, or relax in Coral Bay or Exmouth for extra nights so you can experience more of what this truly magical destination offers.

 

“An amazing experience in a magical part of the world. I can’t imagine a better way to taste Ningaloo Reef. We did the package combined with 3 nights at Sal Salis, and the time on board the Shore Thing was an absolute highlight. The crew were amazing, are so experienced and knowledgeable, the boat is very comfortable and all services superb, and the snorkelling was out of this world. Saw everything we hoped and so much more. Cannot recommend this highly enough”

“The 3-day snorkelling (and diving for those inclined) is one for the bucket list. Its hard to stop the list. Manta rays, turtles, sharks, sting rays, dugong, and more coral shapes than you can count. The meals were brilliant. Sunsets were brilliant. And an absolute special mention for the crew. Professional, competent and friendly. They made us feel part of an extended family. Sail Ningaloo has connections with other companies in the area, when we had difficulty in pulling parts of the trip together (whaleshark swim and Sal Salis), they used their connections to sort out a plan for us – better than a travel agent”
