Immerse yourself amongst the kaleidoscope of tropical marine life found along Ningaloo Reef on the mid-west coast of Australia. Suitable for snorkellers and divers, you can expect critters, rays and whale shark encounters in season.

Ningaloo Reef stretches 250km from Coral Bay to Exmouth on the mid-west coast of Australia and is accessible from both locations. The fringing reef can be visited year round and is suitable for snorkellers as well as divers. The warm, calm waters are home to an incredibly bio-diverse marine life including 250 corals and 450 species of fish, loggerhead, hawksbill and green turtles (nesting season is Nov-Feb) dugong, dolphin and several species of shark.

It’s no doubt that visitors travel here for exceptional marine encounters, including manta rays which can be seen year round on the cleaning stations, humpback whales (seen Jun-Nov) and whale sharks who visit annually from late March to end of July (traditionally the best months for optimum encounters).

The reef is part of the extensive Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Site of Western Australia (1,200km long) which offers plenty of outback adventures especially in Cape Range national park.
