      Amazing experience!
      I went on the tour with my mum. She didn't want to snorkel so she stayed in the boat, which is amazing because you see all the coral and all the fishes from the bottom glass. I snorkelled at the 2 locations and both were amazing, we saw so many diferent fishes and the extension of the coral is crazy! The crew were so nice, all of them helpful and explained so many things.

      Amazing boat trip to the reef
      The trip was really excellent. My husband didn’t snorkel but still loved the trip and saw so much from the boat. I was gently encouraged to snorkel and with Will to help & guide me I had an amazing time. A huge thank you from us both to Will & Eb 🙏

      Amazing teamwork. I liked the company function, love and protection that they have for the ocean environment and its sealife. We were able to watch and enjoy a great deal of marine life always respecting them and the area. Congratulations!

      AMAZING AND UNIQUE EXPERIENCE
      We've lived one the greatest experience of our lives thanks to Coral Bay Ecotours. They took great care of us all during the tours, and gave plenty of information and explanations about the things we saw and did / would do. I highly recommend this tour to anyone wishing to swim with manta rays and discover the amazing underwater of Coral Bay and Ningaloo Reef..

      Nice guides !
      Really friendly guides, Sophie and Abi. We managed to be the only two girls without a turtle encounter on the first snorkel, so Abi took us out again for 5-10 min to find a turtle for us! Very sweet of her ! Only negative thing is that the water is rather cold, so would have preferred to wear a shortie wetsuits, we were just swimming in our bikinis and by the end of the two swims I was shaking.

      Absolutely fantastic trip on Boxing Day with lovely and extremely helpful knowledgable staff who couldn’t do enough even if your a nervous first timer - from turtles, reef sharks, Mantas and an abundance of all types of fish in an underworld Atlantis 10 mins from the bay - this trip had it all - would do it again in a heartbeat !!! Thanks to the onboard team who made the day special !

      Amazing day on Ningaloo reef
      We had an amazing day and credit goes to all the crew who were fantastic! Having Dan on board taking professional photos was brilliant so we could choose afterwards to buy his excellent pictures of the animals we'd seen. We had 2 great snorkels on the reef, seeing lots of turtles and then a shark cleaning station. We had a full boat (19 people) so the snorkel was a little crowded in places but still amazing. We split into 2 groups for snorkelling with the manta we found so that was a much more intimate experience and really incredible. We got incredibly lucky and also saw a whale shark within the reef which we got to see in the water. Would 100% recommend and we'd love to do this again if we're back!

      Truly amazing
      We had our tour booked on Christmas eve. The entire experience starting from booking was pleasant. Our tour guides were excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. They took us to best part of the reef and explained us about all the corals and fishes that we saw on the tour. We had our 3 year old daughter who could feed the fish as a bonus. Highly recommend this !!!

      Epic Coral Bay Manta Ray Swim and Snorkel
      Can’t say enough about this epic adventure!!! The crew of Lou, Brodhi, Dan and Will hosted an amazing tour that included four different opportunities to get in the water to swim/snorkel with ocean life. Their knowledge about the flora and fauna was impressive. They kept our group engaged and enthused about what we were seeing and doing. Highlights included swimming through a coral gap, snorkelling with heaps of manta rays, and sightings of dolphins, sea turtles, reef sharks, as well as a squid attack complete with ink deployment. A sneak peek of Will’s underwater photos look amazing. Well worth the price!!!

    If you book a hour tour and you wait 10 minutes for people who didn’t turn up we should of still done our hour tour we paid for not 50 minutes. The most fish we saw was when they were feed. The coral had no colour. The scenery was just beautiful and staff pleasant.

    This was a super trip. My husband has a bad ankle and the crew were extremely helpful getting him on and off the boat. It was explained that the initial coral we would see was dead due to the spawning event but we were taken further and were soon over healthy coral with lots of fish. The commentary was clear and informative. The company has a fish feeding licence and the fish came up all around and under the boat. We both thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

    I have been to Coral Bay several times over the last 30 years. I was bitterly disappointed with the tour. Firstly it started 10 mins late so it was a 50 minute tour not 60mins. Unfortunately the was a coral spawning event in March causing the coral and fish to die. We saw brown reef and hardly any fish. I took my daughter son in law and my 2 grand children on the tour. It was very very disappointing. I feel I should have been informed of this before payment was taken.

    There were 6 of us on the tour and we enjoyed the one hour glass bottom tour . What an amazing view of the carols garden. For a non swimmer, I guess this is the best way to view the reef.

    The guide was good and she answered all our questions.

    We saw lots of purple colour corals , turtles, many fish and of course lots of other beautiful corals too.

    I would Highly recommended to everyone who are travelling to Coral Bay.

    One little request - Compared to other bottom glass boat cruise we had been, I think this boat need a bit of cleaning on the glass, thank you

    Firstly, I accidentally booked the wrong day for our trip and contacted Ecotours and they moved my booked date to the following week. So their flexibility and willingness to assist was excellent and greatly appreciated.

    The trip was very good and the knowledge of the team providing the tour knew their stuff, so it made it all the more better. They were also very approachable with my two little ones asking questions and being interactive.

    Beautiful morning, no wind and the sun was out. Waded through the water to get on our boat for our 1hr glass bottom boat tour . We were stoked with only 5 of us tourists on board , could spread eagle on the seats and could hear everything our guides were saying, it was fantastic. Favourite part of the coral was Ayres rock it was nick named , looked au-some. Seen heaps of fish , the young one loved it . 100% recommended, even if you have snorkelled out there.

    Let me first say that the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly, That is why I say that this is a very good experience. Nature wise I was a bit disappointed, but the tour company is of course not to blame for this. I expected more colors on the reef. Shapewise the reef is stunning. There we also not a lot of fish, except for the spot the staff brought us and where they fed the fish. So overall it was relaxing to be on the reef for an hour like this.

    We had a lovely hour quietly cruising the bay. The commentary from the crew was very informative and interesting. Although much of the coral died due to coral spawning tragedy in 2022, there was still plenty of fish to see and the coral is beginning to regenerate.
