We did the Best of Ningaloo Manta Ray tour and enjoyed it very much. We saw one manta ray but went several times in the water to take a look at this impressive animal. We also saw reef sharks, a lot of turtles and fish on the guided snorkel tours.
The staff were very helpful and looked very well after my friend who is a less confident swimmer.
We had a great day!

Had a really great time on the quad bike tour with Coastal Adventures. Lots of fun and saw the fabulous Coral Bay coastline and turtles swimming. Definitely recommend for those that also would like an insight to local knowledge by the friendly guide.

A wonderful experience. The quad bikes were fun to ride along the dunes and the beach. You get up to a fair speed and some of the dunes are quite steep, but don't expect a adrenaline-style quad experience. You can't access these beaches on foot, we stopped at a deserted beach and floated along the reef for 40 minutes - spectacular coral and fish and totally to ourselves! Friendly staff made the experience worthwhile. We also saw humpback whales beyond the reef and stopped to spot turtles too. Would recommend most highly!

We weren't too adventurous so we booked a one hour glass-bottomed boat tour. We waited and waited and waited and guess what it turned out that the trip was cancelled. Shame no-one tried to contact us. I was told that I didn't give a contact number or email but I'm sure I did. Perhaps they didn't keep a record. The office is 400 metres from the departure point and they still couldn't be bothered to let us know. The reason given was the waves were 'too high'. The morning tour left in windier and rougher water. When we booked yesterday we were told that there were a few people on this tour - I think it was cancelled because there weren't enough visitors on the trip and the weather conditions was purely and simply an excuse. So punters beware, your trip could be cancelled at the last minute, without notice. What an example of sloppy trading!!

I am very sorry that this happened on your visit to Coral Bay. We are the booking office for many tours around town, and endeavour to put you on the tour that best suits your requirements. Unfortunately, all of the glass bottom boat tours are run by other companies, and they are supposed to get in touch with you directly should their tour not run for any reason. As we are such a remote location, only Telstra and Optus services work here, so perhaps they were not able to contact you on the number you provided. As always, weather can interrupt the best laid plans, especially in the windier months up here of October to February. Again, apologies that you did not get the tour you were after, and we wish you safe and happy travels on the rest of your holiday.

We had a great day with Coastal Adventure Tours. Fraiser, Alex, Justine and Jake showed us everything (or at least a lot) of what the ningaloo reef has to offer. We saw manta rays, whales, eagle rays, lots of turtles, reef sharks, a nurse shark and we even swom with a hammerhead shark. The crew knows where to go and how to interact with the animals in an environmental-sustainable way. We loved it and would definitely do it again!

Kind regards,
Chris and Lara

Thank you Lara for your review of Utopia's manta ray interaction.
I am pleased to hear that you had a wonderful day with the passionate Utopia crew. What an amazing experience to have seen so many of the Ningaloo's unique marine creatures in the water in a respectful way. We hope to see you again in the future.

Really enjoyed this two hour trip along the sand dunes and on the beach. Bikes were in great condition and very comfortable. The ride was also operated very safely so fine if you have relatively young kids as million passengers. Enabled us to see parts of the coast only accesdible by 4WD or quite a long and sandy walk. Stopped several times for photos and to view turtles from the cliff top. Coral Bay is spectacular. Good value tour for two people.

Coastal Adventure Tours are without a doubt the best experience in Coral Bay and most probably the best in Western Australia. Fantastic in every sense, from the crew to the places they take you. Fraiser, Jake and Alex made our day at Coral Bay unique. We swam with turtles, manta rays, reef sharks and with a tiger shark, always in a safe and friendly environment.
These guys really know what they are doing and were the only boat going out on the day we went since others thought it was too windy or didn’t want to take small groups. They are really awesome.
I would advise everyone to do this tour.

We recently went aboard Utopia as recommend by one of my friends, Ebony who is now luckily enough to be one of the crew. We had Jake and Justine with us on our day out who were so friendly and knowledgeable and made us all feel very comfortable in the water including my 7 year old son who was nervous at first but on the final snorkel finally got in with Jake and loved it - thank you Jake. We saw so much sea life, Black tip reef sharks, turtles and of course manta rays which my husband has always wanted to swim with, to top it off Fraser found us some humpback whales. Fraser’s passion of the ocean and knowledge is evident.
It was one of the best days we’ve had and we truely felt like we were swimming in an aquarium!

Thank you for your amazing review of Utopia and our passionate crew.
It sounds like you had a great trip with plenty of the Ningaloo's iconic wildlife. I'm thrilled Jake was able to help your son who was nervous on the snorkels, we pride ourselves on our beautiful staff.
We hope to see your family back in Coral Bay soon for more marine "aquarium" fun.

This was a well organised trip by a knowledgable crew keen to share their passion for the reef. We were carefully fitted out with all the gear. It was cold and windy. I am in my 70s with a failing hip so very nervous of the longish snorkelling swims. However Jake was so encouraging and attentive, even promising to tow me if necessary! I managed a quick snorkel to see the one sighting of a manta ray swim underneath me. It involved expert timing by theskipper,Fraser too. Thankyou it was really appreciated.
