I have travelled pretty extensively, and this is by far the most amazing and beautiful place I have ever been. Outback, barrier reefs, seclusion and amazing stars. I cannot wait to get back here sometime in my life as I think about it constantly. Difficult to get to, but it is more than worth the hassle getting there!!!!

I recommend Staying in the little town of Coral Bay, where the sand is pretty white, the sea colours are stunning and all you have to do to go snorkeling is get you and your snorkeling gear into the water, swim out a little bit and the beauty of the coral reef and all its colourful wonders. When you go... More

We are a grown up family of five. We had an amazing trip swimming with the whalesharks with this company . I almost never list a review when asked by the company to do so but will make an exception here as these guys provide a wonderful experience. We had 20 people on our trip and were divided into 2...

It was beautiful, able to see fish and stingrays close to the shore. If you like the beach and a relaxed trip, Ningaloo Reef is your vacation spot!

Ningaloo Station is a hot spot for campers/ caravaners local to WA. For us, coming from Melbourne, it was a mixed experience as we weren't sufficiently equipped for the delightful weather in store. A few pointer for anyone planning to stay at the Station as a a first timer like us: 1. The signpost to the Station, off the exmouth-coral... More

The crew were very friendly and thoroughly professional, the boat was great, the food was great... More

Watching and swimming with whale sharks was an amazing experience and the company we used Ningaloo Blue was incredible. From the moment they picked us up from our accomodation then transported us to the jetty where we boarded the immaculate boat everything was incredibly professional. The experience of swimming with the largest fish in the oceans of the world is... More

This trip is amazing…... right from the time they pick you up in Exmouth, the catamaran – “Pearl”, the service, the crew, the sailing, lunch, snorkeling.. everything is superb... full value for money. My husband and I loved it... recommended for a superb day out.. This was my first tour with “Pearl” and the captain and crew did not disappoint.... More

Oyster Stacks has the best snorkelling if you ask me. Rocky shore for entering & exiting the water but not too bad. Best to go at high tide as shallow area. Coral is right there and the fish come to greet you as you enter the water. Turquoise Bay is a quintessential WA beach, beauiful coloured water, gorgeous sand, you... More
