The Ningaloo Reef can no longer truly be called a secret, but it still has some of the greatest sites to be snorkeled and dived off the coast of Australia. Both Exmouth and Coral Bay offer some fine diving outfits to explore some of it, but Sail Ningaloo takes you out to the best and some of the sites that... More

I booked my 6 day get-away through Perth Scuba months before the departure for my 28th birthday. It was one of Perth Scuba's many advertised group diving holiday's for 2016. I had never been to Exmouth or Coral Bay and knew little about the Ningaloo Reef and what it had to offer. Shortly before the trip my Dad decided to... More

I loved this trip! The crew looked after me so well and skipper was keen to find out what I and others wanted to do/see and make sure these expectations and hopes were met. There were no divers on our trip which made it great for snorkelling as we could focus on shallower sites. Snorkelled with manta rays, sharks, turtles... More

Sailing on Shore Thing and exploring the majestic Ningaloo Reef was a truly unforgettable experience and completely exceeded our expectations. From the moment we stepped aboard, Luke, Andy and Dougie went out of their way to ensure our every comfort, creating a warm, welcoming and relaxing family type atmosphere for all the guests. The Shore Thing provided a wonderful opportunity... More

This is my 3rd time travelling with Sail Ningaloo. Luke, Antoni and Kate have been absolutely brilliant. With Sail Ningaloo- we are literally alone with no boats around or fighting with other divers at a dive spot. It gave us all a very personalised trip- somewhat "celebrity-like". We saw plenty reef sharks at cleaning station, manta rays and even managed... More

We spent 3 fantastic days on Shore Thing - snorkelling was amazing and the care and attention of the crew was first class. The weather was not the greatest but our skipper found sites that were great to snorkel. We were looked after so well - in the water and on board. They went out of their way to ensure... More

The Shore Thing experience was truly wonderful. The hosting was excellent and the the snorkeling on Ningaloo Reef is the best I have ever experienced - the reef is alive with colours and the fish including sharks were awesome. Can't wait to go again.

We loved our trip on Shore Thing. Jesse, Kate and Antoni did everything to make the trip as enjoyable and interesting as possible, really going that extra step. Before we went we wondered about 3 or 5 nights but were very glad we went with the 5 night- lots to see, with great diving and snorkelling. Cath sometimes gets seasick... More

Shore Thing is a very comfortable large catamaran and the biggest in the area. We stayed in one of the staterooms which has a slightly bigger bed than the other cabins and an ensuite. The other cabins are however fine and you should not be put off if the staterooms are taken as those cabins are very adequate. This trip... More
