Whale Shark and Reef Holiday
We wanted an ecotourism holiday, during the April school holidays and in the planning we discovered Ningaloo Reef and the swim with the whale sharks, this was our main aim for visiting Exmouth in WA. We were unfortunately on a schedule, because our stay was dictated by the availability of flights in and out. We booked a package for 4 days and 3 nights it was full on [5:30 flight out of Perth, 7:30 at Exmouth gave us a full first day]: the beautiful thing about the Sea Breeze Resort is that their aim is to make your stay as memorable as possible, with above all a relaxing atmosphere. They organised airport transfers, a hire car [which is essential if you are planning any excursions not using tour operators], continental breakfast and our tours. Upon arrival we were collected at 9;30 for a glass bottom boat tour of the reef, which was a great intro and then the Snorkel with the whale sharks the next day which has to be experienced to be believed [this experience by itself was worth the 2 days of flights] Fantastic! The range of nationalities converging here was quiet extraordinary, the rest of the world knows about this place and we found it accidently. Having your own cooking facilities was a possible bonus for families, but we went into town bought supplies and used the resort bar-b-q each night. Transport was also available to take you into town to restaurants. Nothing was too hard for them. Would we go back, most certainly. The one thing that disappointed me was that I did not see a Manta ray while snorkelling on the reef, maybe next time, we were told July is supposed to be even better with the addition of the Whales coming through and maybe dugongs? Check it out!
