You, Ningaloo Reef, sunset, and all the feels.

Spend the day drifting the Ningaloo Reef, perfecting your stroke under the generous Western Australian sun. Marvelling at the sparkling crystal-clear turquoise-coloured water, only touched by your oar. This is relaxation nirvana. Time your kayak adventure as the sun sets, seeing and feeling it slowly cascade into an oceanic plane of vibrant orange.

Grab your flippers, lifejacket & go!

As the world’s largest, fringing reef, you’ve got a fun day of kayaking adventure waiting, metres away from your glamping accommodation.

Our guides check the tides and weather to ensure conditions are kayak friendly. 

Don’t forget to pack your flippers, so you can jump out and swim whenever you want.

With an array of colourful reef residents, you can explore a little farther along the shore with a kayak.

There’s beauty waiting to be discovered, from a different perspective. 

Shhh… this is the best snorkelling spot.

Prefer to go with a group rather than float in the company of nature? Our guided kayak-snorkels take you further off-shore, where we drop an anchor in the sand and discover deeper lagoons. 

These oceanic oasis’s offer a rare experience of the lifecycle of the reef, and all that embodies it. Witnessing soft corals, sponges, wobbegong sharks, and hundreds of marine fish.  

Our guides will show you how to interact with this unique ecosystem, without interfering with nature. 

Kayaking between August to October is extra special

Just imagine, gliding gently on the water, in your groove with the infinity sign move pushing you forward… and you see a humpback whale, just metres away from the reef. You’re not just seeing them from a distance, as visitors. 

You’re in their environment, now. You’re part it.
