Whale sharks have arrived to Ningaloo reef

Whale Sharks have arrived to Ningaloo Reef with local operators having swam with 4 and 5 metre whale sharks on the weekend! 

Every year from April to July these slow moving, gentle, filter feeding sharks migrate along Ningaloo Reef following the mass sporning of coral.   Whale Sharks are the largest living fish species and can grow up to 12 metres in length. 

Sal Salis Whale Shark season runs from 31st March – 17th July 2010.  During this time we operate whale shark charters on Tuesday & Friday as part of our ‘Whale Shark Packages’.  Supported by our own spotter plane and with only camp guests booked on board ensures exclusivity with one of the greatest wildlife experiences on earth.

Arkaba creek flows!

The Flinders Ranges region saw an unusual downpour of rain on Thursday 11th February causing Arkaba Creek to flow for the first time in quite some time.  The rain also brought lush green grass to the Arkaba Homestead garden which enticed many of the euros (kangaroo) to jump the fence in the early hours of the morning to feast on all its green loveliness.  Sure enough after 24 hours Arkaba Creek bed was looking empty and dry again.    


Yellow fin tuna is the catch of the day

Our fishing guide Murray and lodge manager Mike christened our new boat on the first fishing charter.  A tough job but somebody has to do it!  They successfully caught 4 Yellow Fin Tuna and raised 5 Billfish including a reasonable Sailfish.  Not a bad job for an afternoons work.

Ningaloo Reef is recognised as the premier fishing destination in Western Australia.  Excellent game and reef fishing is on offer for Sal Salis guests who either book our fishing packages or a 1 day private fishing charter.

Sal Salis launched their fishing packages on 15th August 2010 and we have a selection of fishing packages for the keen angler to experience.   Visit:
