        Brilliant 1/2 day snorkel tour.
        Brilliant experience. Great boat and facilities and excellent knowledgeable staff. Highly recommend this trip. Half day on the water is just about the right amount of time. The coral and fish are amazing on Ningaloo.

        A great day out in the water.
        Did the full snorkel tour which was exactly as described with 3 full snorkels and a good lunch. The snorkelling was great but the bonus was that you followed a guide in the water who pointed out features and added a layer of safety. Other tours it was a case of jump in the water and climb out when finished. We Had a great day. Enjoyed every part of it. Have done tours in coral bay and cairns and this was better. Can’t fault this tour.

        Bit deep for not confident swimmers but staff are very helpful. Good to see so many whales returning to these areas. And plenty of turtles.

        Incredible!
        This is one of the best snorkelling tours that I’ve done, & I’ve done a lot! I didn’t plan on doing this trip & only booked last minute. I kinda thought it might not be that exciting. How wrong I was!!! This was definitely every bit as amazing as all the previous reviewers said! The water quality is next level amazing, the snorkels & fins were good quality, the staff were friendly, & the wildlife was AMAZING! We saw turtles, octopus & so many beautiful fish. Definitely do yourself a favour & book this!

        Everything worked well, good boat, well organised, food, snorkelling. Good staff and lovely area. No turtles though, but that’s just bad luck, or good luck?

        Fun day on the turquoise water
        Enjoyed our snorkel trip even though it was a bit windy, choppy and cool. Janine and Max were friendly and knowledgeable. Saw a couple of turtles resting while we snorkeled, lots of brightly coloured fish, a few large rays and a good sized reef shark. Visibility was pretty good and the coral colourful. Lots of turtles sighted on the return boat trip. Definitely worth it!

        These guys are spot on, they knew exactly where to take us to snorkel where we saw, turtles, manta rays, stingrays and then out to see whales and we saw heaps of them breaching the water and took great pictures, from start to finish it was brilliant and cheap at that, highly recommended.

        Family Fun - an Exmouth must do!
        Lea and Max were amazing and so friendly. There were a lot of young children and one who was really scared to get in the water and Lea took her under her wing and she ended up having an amazing experience in the water and loved it. Max was so knowledgeable and made us feel feel safe and spotted Dugongs and Turtles and it was just a really special experience all round. Even our 4 year old jumped in the water for his first swim in the ocean!

        Just the best
        We had two days with them and both were great, they were knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. They could go to the shallower parts of the reef due to the size of their boat and spotted a lot of sea life like dugongs, turtles and we even had dolphins swimming with us, an experience we will never forget.

        Great day with Cape Immersion
        We had a great snorkel tour with Jan and Max. Visited some great snorkel sites with amazing variety and quantity of fish. Also got to swim with mantas and had a nice explore of mangrove beach. Good BBQ lunch, and very informative.

      We paid for a snorkelling charter for the full day.

      Left in the morning and saw Turtles, humpback whales, sharks and incredible reef in crystal clear water showcasing some really really amazing fish and coral.

      We stopped off at the beach where the crew cooked an amazing BBQ. My partner is veggo and they really accommodated that by including some extra stuff.

      Then straight back into the water for some more exploring.

      The crew were great, they were really chilled and informative. I am not the best swimmer but was made to feel relaxed and as such really enjoyed the experience. Janine jumped in the water every time to show us where to go and what to see. She knew all the best spots. She also had a wicked camera and took some photos throughout the day.

      We never felt rushed, everything was relaxed. The only bad thing about this tour was the tour ending. 10 stars :)

      What a great day out. Our crew, Jeanine and Tricky, were amazing... very professional, friendly, knowledgable, good humoured and catering to the needs of the experienced snorkeller and the novice. We felt very safe both in the water and on the boat. The dives were fantastic with great locations showcasing an abundant and diverse display of coral and aquatic life. The day was finished off nicely with a BBQ lunch on the beach, which included tasty vegetarian options and salads. We're already looking to book a return trip to Exmouth and will certainly be in touch with Cape Immersion Tours for another adventure.

      Excellent day spent out on the water with this lovely team of 3.
      All three guides worked together well as a team to maximise our experience out in the water. Great snorkelling and yummy bbq lunch provided on a white sandy beach with turquoise water. X1 snorkel and x2 drift snorkels (weather dependent for drift snorkels) Heaps of fish, coral … we even spotted reef sharks and stingrays. On our cruise back to the boast ramp we were able to spot numerous turtles as well as dolphins and dugongs. Lots fitted into one day but it did not feel rushed at all. Small group size was also an added bonus.

      Great to hear! it is our aim to create an enjoyable day and see plenty of wildlife without rushing. The best way to see the reef is to relax and enjoy whatever we come across and it sounds like you saw plenty. The abundance and variety of life on the reef is what makes it such a special and unique place. Small groups allow you the space and time to really relax and enjoy this, plus a bbq on the beach is always a highlight. Thanks for the review - hope to see you again.

      This was my first time snorkelling. I'm not a very confident swimmer but Janine put me at ease and made sure I was well looked after. It was a small group of 7 adults and 2 children. Tommy and Janine were great guides. Janine was very knowledgeable and made sure she spent time with everyone on the boat.
      We saw plenty of marine life including a very big stingray. We did 2 snorkel sessions then after a lovely BBQ lunch we headed out in search of whales and saw some adult whales swimming along. We also saw dolphins and a baby reef shark during the day. I am so glad I did this tour and would definitely rebook on my next visit to Exmouth.

      All three snorkel swims were very good, but the middle one with the round Bommie was great. Rays, sharks and lots of fish. very good trip.
      Janine, Trippy and Sarah were professional, experienced and knowledgeable. Great day out. Great beach BBQ.

      We did a lot of snorkelling in Exmouth, and I've dived Muiron before (in deep water), so I wasn't sure what to expect from a snorkel.

      In short, I thought it was the best snorkelling on our trip to Exmouth! The first snorkel we did was in "turtle alley" in 5 - 8m water with incredible rocky outcrops and coral formations. I thought it was the best snorkel I've ever done. The second snorkel was in the channel between the 2 islands and went from shallow to deep water and we saw some reef sharks, which was a highlight.

      We returned because of weather had a great lunch on a private beach and then a final snorkel at the Mildura wreck.

      It was an incredible trip and both Janine & Cokie were really helpful with tips and even how to keep our masks clear.

      I would absolutely recommend this for anyone who wants a great snorkel.

      A fabulous day! Highly recommended for all ages. Crew Tricky and Janine we’re very friendly, professional and helpful. We certainly felt safe in their hands. An excellent way to get to fabulous snorkelling sites without having local knowledge yourself. The BBQ lunch on the beach was delicious and a great spot to relax after a great time snorkelling and wild life spotting from the boat. I’d certainly do the tour again, many times over, as every tour seems to change to make the best of the weather conditions. Thank you so much Cape Immersion Tours for a fantastic day!

      Best snorkelling tour in Exmouth. Saw so much marine life in a relaxed setting all day. Had time to enjoy it rather than a quick look and off. The food was fabulous and the small group was more personal than tours with bigger groups. I’d definitely recommend this tour. I’d say it was better than the whale shark tour as it was less regimented, more relaxed, you get more for the money you pay and you get to spend more time with the marine life. It was a magical day seeing dugongs, hump backs, turtles, sharks, dolphins, rays, coral and lots of colourful fish.

      BEST SNORKELLING TOUR IN EXMOUTH - We agree! We do aim for a relaxing day. We like to say 'see the Ningaloo the way the locals do' - like hanging out with your friends for the day - personal and enjoyable, with plenty of time to soak in all that the magical reef has to offer. We appreciate your recommendation.

      Good snorkel spots, skipper (Cokey) and guide (Janine). They had a friendly helper too. We saw sting rays, a turtle underwater, two mating turtles from the beach on Muiron Island, 8+ dolphins 20m from the boat for 5+ minutes, and lots of great fish and coral. The optional $40 photos turned out great. We appreciated being picked up, commentary on the bus and boat, enthusiastic staff, and the tasty fresh-cooked hot lunch (at the island) and fruit.

      Excellent tour! After the high adrenaline experience of swimming with whale sharks on a previous tour, it was great to relax with a few snorkels along the reef. The tour was very chill with plenty of options for what we wanted to do. Janine is a great asset the the Cape Immersion team, with her fabulous photography skills as well as her knowledge of Exmouth and the reef.

      The only downside to this company was having to contact the company to find out if the tour was cancelled as we were not notified otherwise- unlike other companies. Our tour was cancelled (due to weather conditions-no fault of the Cape Immersion) but we were only notified after I texted to confirm pick up. We were rebooked immediately for Sunday 27th which was fabulous, just a little bit frustrating that we had to chase up about it- maybe something that can be rectified in the future.
