Looking for the ultimate Ningaloo Reef sailing experience? This is it!
Set sail aboard a purpose-built sailing catamaran to discover the World Heritage-listed beauty of Western Australia’s Ningaloo Reef – in style! This award-winning, all-encompassing 6-day marine safari is perfect for those seeking to venture far beyond the tourist traps – both in and out of the water – and get up close to the famous marine life at slow pace.
Situated halfway up the West Australian coastline, Ningaloo Reef is the world’s largest fringing reef, a 260-kilometre (162-mile) long coral reef teeming with more than 500 species of fish as well as manta rays, turtles, humpback whales and, if you’re lucky, the elusive whale shark. Nowhere else on Earth can you see such a diverse array of marine life in such large numbers – and with such regularity. Ningaloo Reef is truly a bucket-list destination!
With transfers included from Learmonth Airport (LEA), set sail to some of the most remote areas of the Ningaloo Reef aboard the beautifully appointed 51-foot sailing catamaran ‘Shore Thing’. Over 6 days, expert crew and guides will show you the very best reef sites, including some visited only by Shore Thing and personally named by the crew. No other Ningaloo Reef tour accesses these areas, so they are pristine and uncrowded. You’ll have ample opportunities to swim, snorkel, dive and kayak with the marine life as well as rest and relax on deck. You’ll even have the chance to help photo-identify Western Australia’s largest manta ray population.
Only on this tour does the journey continues out of the water, with visits to the historical ruins of the Norwegian Bay Whaling Station and the Point Cloates Lighthouse. These incredible yet little-known sites will transport you back in time and give unique insight into life on the West Coast in the early 20th century.
You’ll stay 5-nights aboard ‘Shore Thing’ in the cabin of your choosing. Throughout your voyage, you’ll enjoy all-inclusive gourmet meals and snacks, with the opportunity to catch your own dinner. A team of experienced crew and guides are at your service at all times and snorkelling, kayaking and fishing equipment is provided. Transport to and from Learmonth Airport also provided.
Escape to one of the last great ocean paradises at Ningaloo Reef, with this unforgettable 6-day marine safari. Marine playgrounds don’t get much better than this!
