Day-by-Day Itinerary

All Ningaloo Reef tours and charters depart at 4pm, which means you can fly in to Learmonth on the day of your departure and there is plenty of time to travel to Coral Bay and have a look around before joining us on board. Most days of the week you are also able to fly out the afternoon after we return at 12:30pm. Sail Ningaloo is pleased to offer airport transfers to/from Learmonth airport for all departures, please contact us for pricing and to discuss options if you are unable to find flights that you believe are suitable.

Sail Ningaloo’s tours cater for both snorkellers and scuba divers, from the not so confident, to experienced skill levels. During our regular tour departures you can expect to be offered 3 to 4 snorkelling activities per day depending on the time of year and scuba diving is offered on average 1 – 2 of those times, depending on the conditions of the day and sites visited. During a Private Charter we can tailor the activities to best suit your groups needs and interests, whether you are looking for a dedicated scuba diving adventure, or a more relaxed sailing experience. You’ll be the only guests on board and we’ll show you the best that Ningaloo Reef has to offer.

Private sailing charters are available for a minimum of 3 nights and we can comfortably cater for up to 9 guests if your group contains singles and couples, or up to 10 guests for family groups. There is no maximum duration for a Private Charter experience.
