“Stephen and Rhani. Ningaloo outer reef experience.”

Ningaloo Experience
Reviewed 26 August 2012

We went on the Outer reef experience and had close up view of whales we swam with Manta rays and had time snorkelling. We we were supplied with all the gear required for great swim including wetsuits. The staff on booking experience were very helpful decking out the family in snorkelling gear. Daniel was our onboard guide who was friendly, informative and at all times making sure everyone on board was safe, comfortable and fed. Pedro our skipper was obviously a very experienced man who knew the best spots to find the animals. We had a great day and we also got some photos to take home of our experience. Highly recommend it.

Spent a week in Coral Bay in late July. Was blown away by the marine life and the professional yet laid-back service provided by Ningaloo Experience. The small group size, knowledgable and friendly staff made an already amazing day unforgettable. Off-season for whale sharks but was still able to swim with manta rays, turtles and countless fish. Tea, coffee and cake also provided while we watched in awe as humpback whales breached on either side of the boat. Five stars!

We visited coral bay in late June. After some research I booked with Ningaloo Experience due to the number of people they take on their trip (and this is great as it really gives you an opportunity to have the best personal experience if you swim with the manta rays and also gives you some room to move around when on the boat.). On the day of our trip we had some cool windy conditions to start the day. We visited two great snorkelling sites and had a fantastic lunch on board (an added extra for that day.) Unfortunately we didn't find any manta rays though. Despite this we had a good day. It was amazing just cruising along the coast line and the snorkelling spots were great. My husband and I decided that as we had the time we would go out again a couple of days later (in the hope of swimming with manta rays) and along with another couple from our first day trip did this at a discounted rate.
Our second trip was fantastic. We had whales breeching right beside the boat, enjoyed snorkelling again but at different spots to the previous trip and we swam with manta rays twice. It was a special thing to experience and still differnent to swimming with the whale sharks.
On both our trips we were looked after by Dan our friendly guide, and the skippers Pedro and Stewie. Thanks to Fran in the office who was friendly and helpful with booking and also arranging gear to go out.

Okay so it is our fault for not checking ahead, but we were stunned by the $400/pp charge to to swim with the Whale Sharks. We opted for a less expensive snorkel tour that we really enjoyed.($140/pp)

The reef itself was terrific and the locals generally very friendly. (one snarly waitress) The place we stayed at was fine and really close to the water. The area is totally tourist focused and dont expect many frills.

The bakery is good in the shopping centre and the coffee was served hot and tasty.

There are only 3 restaurants and they are all fairly average.

Go for the sun and a snorkel.

My hubby, two girls (6&9) and I went on an amazing Mantra Ray day trip with Ningaloo Experience today and were very well looked after by Daniel & Pedro. We chose this company as they only took small groups out and we thought we'd be able to keep a good eye on our girls this way, which was certainly the case. Not only this, but Daniel, our guide and skipper, Pedro, keep a keen eye out for them too. The beauty of this trip was the professional yet relaxed approach to the day. There was nothing regimented or rushed, we were just cruising the Ningaloo doing some great snorkelling. The guys knew the best spots to go and we had an amazing snorkel swim with a massive Mantra Ray, as well as a few reef sharks, turtle and fantastic coral gardens and tropical fish species. As an added bonus we fished for squid which the guys cleaned and cut for us to cook up for dinner. Daniel also took some great photos which we souveniered on a CD for only $25. We'd highly recommend Ningaloo Experience to anyone in Coral Bay. Thanks for a great trip guys!!
