grab your mask and snorkel for an underwater adventure
Stretching for 280kms along Australia’s west coast, the World Heritage Ningaloo Reef is the world’s longest fringing coastal reef and remains one of Australia’s best kept natural secrets. Unlike the Great Barrier Reef, the coral is within swimming distance of the beach, our house reef is no more than 100m offshore - no boats or transfers required!
Ningaloo is also a major breeding ground for hawksbill, loggerhead and green turtles, which come ashore to lay their eggs in the dunes at night (between September and December). The other gentle giants of the sea, the manta ray, also allows swimmers to share its world whilst the coral lagoons reveal huge schools of fish, reef sharks, smaller rays and a multitude of other species living amongst this pristine reef.
There are numerous picturesque beaches offering stunning drift snorkels and sheltered bays where children can play. A drift snorkel just a few metres offshore reveals a wealth of life, with huge staghorn coral formations, anemones, clownfish, rays and sponge gardens. All snorkelling gear is provided.
