About the tour
The half day tour meets at 8:00am and returns around 1:30pm. This tour begins in our dive shop where we provide you with all the gear you need such as mask, snorkel, fins, and a full length wetsuit for snorkeling as well as BCD, regulators if you are diving. We then head to the reef for our first in water activity, if you are snorkeling we will spend 40 minutes snorkeling the reef and if you are diving then you will have a guided dive of 45-50 minutes.
Once we have finished our first in water activity we will provide morning tea and head to the area where we typically find manta rays. At this point our spotter plane heads up in the air in search of one of our resident mantas! If the plane finds one, we will get the opportunity to snorkel with them! We will spend as much time as possible with the mantas and once finished we will slowly cruise around the bay in search of other wildlife we can spot from the boat. We will then head back to the jetty for approximately 1:30pm where our buses will take you back to town to finish the day.
Information for Divers
Our dive sites are beautiful coral reef dives that have a varied depth of 4m to 12m with our average depth being at 6-8m. As the Ningaloo Reef is a fringing reef, it is quite shallow all around but filled with spectacular coral structures and marine life. All of our dives are guided dives with maximum group sizes of 8, although we typically have smaller groups.
Our dives are 45-50 minutes long and the average visibility in Coral Bay is 10-15m but can vary depending on conditions. The water temperature varies from 20C up to 26C in the summer and we provide full length 5mm wetsuits for all divers.
