We took a 3 night reef tour in August with Luke and his crew on Shore Thing. Everything was absolutely fantastic. We travelled with our 3 kids aged 7, 9 and 11. Firstly, Lannie was fantastic at organising everything for us, including equipment for a scuba dive (most is carried on board, we just needed to rent BCD and dive computer), travel tips for getting to Coral Bay from Exmouth airport, what to see along the way, car and transport options, meal preferences, anything we might have requested she was on to. All we needed to do was turn up. The boat is really great. The cabins are exceptionally comfortable, the food was fantastic, the dive/snorkel site knowledge was very good - all in all, service wise, from the first moment we were able to be very relaxed knowing we were in safe and professional hands. The rest just followed - great snorkelling (really fabulous for our kids who had no previous experience), fishing for fish and squid, kayaking, scuba diving, relaxing with a cold glass of wine and nibbles at sunset...We could have easily stayed on for many more days, but sadly our time was up. I'm sure we'll return - you're guaranteed a great holiday with Sail Ningaloo. It's well worth it.

No way to fault anything onboard the Shore Thing! Luke, Briony, Vicky and Scuba Steve are very knowledgeable, friendly and skilled crew! Nothing was to hard for them.

We chartered the boat for a dive trip (9 divers) and Luke took us to some great spots. Knew where to find all the sharks, turtles, mantas and anything else we were looking for! Kits and tanks were set up for us before each dive, while we slept on the deck in the sunshine :)

Food was amazing!! No faults.

We will definitely be back!

Wow second time around for us on the Shore Thing and equally as exciting! Swimming with turtles, reef sharks, tropical fish and everything else possible on Australia's best kept secrete reef - Ningaloo! The accommodation was superb as was the gourmet food and staff. But the highlight has to be swimming with the big Manta rays up close and personal - man those rays!!!
