This is the best way to experience the Ningaloo Reef. The boat, captain and crew were excellent. We couldn't have asked for more. Food, snorkeling and company were above our expectations. Thanks to Captain Luke and his wonderful crew (on land and boat).

Sometime next year we hope to visit Ninngaloo. We are coming from California and avid divers. and would like to dive in warm water (my husband is allergic to neoprene) and can plan the trip, possibly with others - snorkelers and possibly one other diver, according to best time to dive Ninngaloo. What would be the cost of a trip, and how many days do you recommend? We love muck diving as well as sharks, mantas etc.
