Ningaloo Reef Dugong


We are looking at visiting Ningaloo Reef in early February next year, I was wondering what the likelyhood of seeing Dugongs would be?

We had originally thought of going to Monkey Mia to see them - but Ningaloo seems to offer a better all round experience of snorkelling etc.

The Dugongs would be our primary reason for going though so if there is no chance we will rethink and go somewhere else. Our itinerary allows 3 or 4 nights, would this be enough/too much/ too little for the area? I know this is very vague, we will be looking for dugongs primarily and then doing some snorkelling etc, but we are also going to the Whitsundays on this holiday.

We will fly in from Perth.

Any other information/recommendations would be greatly appreciated

Thanks in advance :)

Dugongs are more common between March and June, but no guarantees.

I suggest you contact the Exmouth Visitors Center to see if they can help:
