My wife and I joined Sail Ningaloo for a 4 day/3 night liveaboard snorkelling trip as part of a 10 day visit to the Cape Range Peninsula. Despite uncharacteristically strong wind and large swells, we were privileged to make 10 snorkels over very different coral gardens, most of suitable depth for scuba diving which is also available from the catamaran....

All in all, great operators. We had a few issues on our side, and there were a few issues that were out of the control of the boat / owners. I accidentally missed the flight from Sydney to Perth, which meant we missed our connection to Exmouth. The owners were kind enough to pick us up separately from the airport,... More

Our 3 night getaway trip was made all the more special when we learned we would be the only guests on the trip. When asked why the trip was not canceled the owner, Luke, explained that they try to provide a reliable service that people can rely on. We really appreciated the knowledge of the local area and the marine... More

We joined the 4 day/3 night liveaboard trip with Sail Ningaloo. Our predominant reason for booking the trip was to scuba dive the Ningaloo Reef but we were unfortunately cursed with bad weather so didn't get to dive as much as we would have liked! Even still, the trip was thoroughly enjoyable. The snorkelling was world class, and we saw... More

We did a 5-day snorkeling and dive-trip on board the Shore Thing in July 2016, so this review is long overdue. But I had to write it, because it was the best trip we could have imagined!! The staff was very helpful all the way from booking and helping us book accommodation in Coral Bay to helpful tips on exploring... More

Most impressed with the place, the people and particularly the exceptional marine life on the reef. The crew did a great job. Their care and consideration for those sailing with them was of the highest standard, both in responding to emails in setting up the trip and whilst on board. They are very knowledgeable about the locality, and when and... More

I was very sad to say good bye on my last day on Sure Thing. Made some great friendships and Thank you Sail Ningaloo for this surreal vacation. You welcomed us into your family and showed us your aquatic friends. I cannot give a stronger recommendation. If you dream of seeing Ningaloo reef at its best.... you cannot go past... More

What a fantastic trip we had. Pristine waters, an outstanding variety of corals, and sensational fish, with the local knowledge of the captain being invaluable in enabling us to see what we wanted to see.The care and attention by the crew was a joy to experience especially for one who is not a strong swimmer! And what they managed to... More

We would have sent this much sooner but computer problems ultimately led to new computer and now we're all set up! My husband and I are scuba divers that have had the blessing enough to dive in places such as Fiji, South Africa and the Galapagos to name a few. The diving here in Coral bay is pristine, shallow dives... More
