The staff were great to communicate with around booking. The actual tour was well worth every cent and both the skipper and crewman were very knowledgeable and humorous. We learnt a lot, saw a lot and loved every minute.

Hi, which days of the week do you operate whale shark tours and turtle tours? What time of day do the tours depart, and where from? And, can we book and pay for the tour on the day, provided there's spaces left? I'm asking because we want to book a tour for Monday 5th June, but we are travelling quite far the day before and don't know yet whether we will make it up in time for the tours. Thanks.

I suggest you ring the operators of the tours direct. They normally go every second day, with the in between days, being Manta Ray tours. These are also excellent.

Hi, Is the Marine Eco Tour the same as the Manta Ray Tour that others have reviewed? Thanks

Hello Barbeton, Yes, the Marine Ecotour is what our manta ray tour is called because we also take guests to other sights on the Ningaloo Reef to show as much of it as we can.
