Awesome experience. Not many places that you can walk of a beautiful white sand beach and swim over coral reef with a wide range of tropical fish. We loved the remote feeling. After a couple of hours we booked in a few extra days and changed our flights home so that we could stay longer.

We enjoyed the warm water, and walking from the beach you can go quite a distance in very shallow water. You have to be careful NOT to step on any of the small sting rays in the water - they burry themselves in the sand and are sometimes hard to see. They sat still while we were up very close... More

Nice enough place to visit if you like it cheap, you can still go far out snorkelling and see some cool coral and a small amount of fish. the surrounding area isn't that inviting. must do if your on a west coast trip from Perth to Broome or vice versa

More marine life per cubic metre of seawater than the great barrier reef. Plus you can swim over it with a mask and snorkel as it is only 40 yards from the beach. Plus you can WALK through the sea to get to it. Always wear shoes suitable for saltwater as there are stone fish around. Marvellous

We thoughly enjoyed Ningaloo Reef, and will definitely be back to see the Whale Sharks! This is a snorkellers paradise.... You can reach parts of the reef from the shore, so no boat needed. You will see plenty of fish, turtles and coral... The colours are just breath taking. Make sure you are there in the right season for the... More

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...
