Our ultimate wildlife experience - The Marine Ecotour is the perfect way to see everything the World Heritage listed Ningaloo Reef has to offer here in Coral Bay's unique reef ecosytem. 5-6 hours with 3 different snorkel spots including a Manta Ray swim, this trip doesn't disappoint!
This full day action packed marine ecotour adventure includes wet suits and snorkel equipment, fantastic food (morning tea, full lunch and afternoon snacks), drinks (coffee, tea, cordial).
The highlight of this fantastic marine ecotour is the chance to swim with the awe inspiring manta ray, which the professional Eco tours staff will endeavour to deliver, in what has become almost a daily event in Coral Bay on the Ningaloo Reef. Why not embrace this opportunity to go snorkeling in Coral Bay with the largest winged creature that inhabits our ocean?
Our Ultimate Wildlife Experience - an amazing day on board our state-of-the-art eco tour vessel, Kurni-Ku, its large upper deck viewing area makes it perfect for observing the tropical reef and all of its inhabitants. On this five to six hour adventure you will get the opportunity to snorkel amongst the magnificent Ningaloo coral reef, seeing hundreds of types of reef fish and exciting aquatic life such as reef sharks, turtles, giant clams and octopus. The unique shallow draft allows us to get to the very best snorkeling sites that the spectacular Ningaloo Reef has to offer!
Other marine mammals that may be encountered but not snorkelled with due to strict conservation efforts may include dolphins, dugongs and humpback whales (seasonal).
Tours offered daily in search of Manta Rays and other marine life. While sightings cannot be guaranteed, research involvement allows us to expect to enjoy Manta Rays, Turtles and Reef sharks most days of the year.
The tour is 5 to 6 hours and you get the opportunity to snorkel at least three times;
twice on the reef in two different spots and out to Batemans Bay with the amazing Manta Rays.
Coral Bay is very unique in the fact that you can swim with the Manta Rays all year round and relatively
close to shore within shallow waters. We have a spotter plane to locate the Mantas so the chance of
seeing them is extremely high. You will also have the opportunity to see or swim with turtles, reef sharks,
dugongs, dolphins, whales (when in season), numerous fish and marine species and beautiful coral.
Tour runs 12 months of the year, subject to minimum numbers. Departing from our shop in Coral Bay (located at People's Park Village, next to Fins cafe) at 8.30am (time may vary depending on conditions etc). Returning between 2:30pm - 3pm
