    What to Expect
    Ningaloo Reef has gained an impressive reputation as one of Earth’s last ocean paradises. The reef is approximately 199 miles (320 kilometers) long and is Australia's largest fringing coral reef and the only large reef positioned very close to the mainland. It can range from 492 feet (150 meters) to 9 miles (15 kilometers) offshore and encompasses a massive 1,930 square miles (5,000 square kilometers) of ocean with 500 species of tropical fish and 220 species of coral in all. Ningaloo Reef is famous for swimming with whale sharks, its superb for snorkelling and diving.

    During winter months, the reef is part of the migratory routes for manta rays and humpback whales and it is home to dolphins and dugongs. The beaches of the reef are an important breeding ground of the loggerhead, green and hawksbill turtles. You'll be amazed to see a huge variety of wildlife, both marine and terrestrial. The sheltered lagoons have the clearest turquoise water imaginable. Within the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park there are numerous sanctuary zones, totaling 34% of the total area, all with outstanding natural features and attractions.

    Thanks for the review Daniel! It has been a hot summer in Exmouth so far, but being out on the water is always a lot more comfortable; definitely the place to be on a 45 degree day! Awesome to hear that you enjoyed the snorkelling and saw lots of turtles. We're glad that you enjoyed your tour with us, and thanks again for the recommendation!
