After pickup by air-conditioned bus from your accommodation in Exmouth, your guide provides an introduction to the Ningaloo Reef during the drive down the coast.
Board your luxury sailing catamaran, and get outfitted with provided fins, mask and wetsuit. Floating noodles are available for people who want extra buoyancy. When you arrive at the reef, head to the first snorkel site to see a variety of colorful coral, tropical fish, and sea turtles. If you're lucky, you might spot a manta raya or dugong. Your guide accompanies the group in the water, answering any questions and explaining the marine life of the Ningaloo Reef.
Next up, the captain steers the boat towards the places that the humpback whales frequent. If the conditions are right, and weather permitting, you and your guide can enter the water to swim near the whales. Whales are known to be curious, and they are sometimes interested in the interaction, but they may also swim away. Either way, you can see the magnificent creatures during the journey around the Ningaloo Reef.
