3 Night Ningaloo Reef Snorkel and Dive Getaway from Coral Bay

Rather than limiting your time and experience of the colorful Ningaloo Reef with a half-day or full-day cruise, experience the breadth and depth of the reef on this four-day cruise. Snorkel, swim, kayak, and dive at a range of bays, reefs and coral gardens. Don’t just stick to the popular spots, either: visit a range of secluded locations for undisturbed snorkeling opportunities. Look out for local marine life, from graceful manta rays to migrating humpback whales.

5 Night Ningaloo Reef Ningaloo Escape from Coral Bay

During this 5 night Ningaloo Escape Tour spend 6 days aboard Shore Thing exploring the pristine Ningaloo Reef. This tour is like a marine safari with numerous sightings of mega-fauna including turtles, rays and reef sharks.

We sail in smooth calm waters winding through spectacular dense pristine coral formations and remote reef between Coral Bay and Norwegian Bay. We visit the historical ruins of Norwegian Bay whaling station and hear tragic tales of the many shipwrecks that lie on the Ningaloo Reef. We also get an opportunity to snorkel on one of these historic shipwrecks. You can view Turtles, Dolphins, Dugongs, Manta Rays, Whales (seasonal) and so much more.

Within the calm protected waters of the Ningaloo Reef, there are an abundance of snorkelling, scuba diving and kayaking opportunities available along with stunning secluded beaches to explore. No other Ningaloo Reef tour accesses these areas.

Ningaloo Reef was on my bucket list. We planned our trip for 2020 but CV 19 put an end to that. The team at Sail Ningaloo were amazing and supported the transfer of dates to 2021 without any hassle. The trip ended up being beyond our expectations. The crew fabulous, the food delicious, the boat wonderful and the diving and snorkelling out of this world. The info on the website about planning your Perth to Coral Coast trip was great. A special mention to Chris, Dave, Sasha and Hayley. An amazing team whose work, knowledge and company only enhanced our experience. We highly recommend Sail Ningaloo.

We have just had the privilege to sail with “Shore Thing” for three nights. Capt John, Hendrix, Jade and Gianna could not be faulted in their skill sets, welcoming attitude and just their ability to create a fun three days. They have the most wonderful “office” in the world and take absolute joy in sharing it with their guests. We have had a fabulous three days, having great experiences in the ocean and seeing some amazing ocean life. It is a bit mind blowing being able to get so close to some of the action in the Ocean. Thank you to you all for looking after us so well. I feel like we have left behind 4 new friends. We will be back!

Hi everybody. I don't often leave reviews, but I've been on an amazing 5 Night Ningaloo Reef Escape with Sail Ningaloo twice now. So I thought it's time to recommend this world class experience to others. Sailing, snorkelling, diving and kayaking the Ningaloo Reef without a spotter plane and set itinerary makes this a unique and unpredictable trip, no matter how often you go. The snorkel and dive spots are stunning, full of beautiful coral and teeming with marine life. If the weaher permits (as it did this time), we even go snorkelling on the outer reef. I've snorkelled with manta rays, reef sharks, turtles, leopard sharks and plenty other amazing fish. We even found lots of octopus on this trip. The crew are amazing people, really friendly and fun, and they know the reef like the back of their hand. Back on board, meals are plentiful and delicious, and the cabins comfortable. My awesome trips are a mix of luxury holiday and David Attenborough documentary. A truly unforgettable experience. I recommend this trip to everyone, even if you're a novice snorkeller (like I was) or a lifelong diver.

Thank you for your wonderful review Christina, it is always the best feeling to have guests join us for a second (sometimes 3rd or 4th!) tour or hear they referred us to their friends! There is always something magical going on around Ningaloo and we are incredibly lucky to be able to make the most of that during our time out exploring the reef, no 2 trips are ever the same! All the best to you and we look forward to next time.

Luke, Hendrick, Sophie and John ensured we were kept busy and really excited on the trip. Excellent dives and snorkeling, excellent food, excellent company...just a truly excellent trip that left us all with excellent memories. Even the sunrises and sunsets were excellent...are you catching the theme here? I would go back tomorrow if I could, but since I can’t, I can only recommend that you do...you will love it!

The crew where fantastic each playing their part to create a fabulous team. Captain Luke was rich in knowledge about the bay and had his secret spots to find all wonderful creatures and thoughtful to accomodate to all of us onboard. His entourage Dave And Jade also amazing, Jade cooking evening thing from scratch on board ( best cheesecake ever) , she met have been a mermaid in her past life as she jets through the water so effortlessly. Ma man Dave, Awesome bloke full of life and excitement for the ocean made our journey on 'shore thing' (The boat )so enjoyable, always making sure we where comfortable and enjoying ourselves.
