snorkelling with humpbacks...

As the days lengthen and the weather warms our thoughts turn to making plans to enjoy the great outdoors. Mindful of Australian State and Territory COVID restrictions and our personal and social responsibility to be COVID Safe, many are looking to travel and feed their adventurous curiosity. Travel however does not mean having to be far away. With some of the most unique and diverse landscapes, ecosystems, and natural wonders in the world the time is right to stay local, support local business and to explore our own back yard. The time is right to explore the very same places that international tourists can not wait to once again experience. To explore our own communities and neighbouring towns.

Whether you are manning the sails, scuba diving, fishing or simply exploring new frontiers under the guidance of an experienced captain and licensed charter boat operator, boating offers something for every person of any age and every fitness level. From outdoor adventures to world acclaimed wines and pristine beaches, stunning inland rivers, tall timber forests and ancient underground caves, West Australia offers an abundance of places to discover how boating can soothe the soul and can help recharge your state of mind. For those looking to relax and enjoy the great outdoors, Ningaloo Reef and the surrounding region is a favoured destination.

Home to whale sharks, manta rays and turtles, for many the most noble of visitors to the reef are the humpback whales that pass through on their annual migration from Antarctica. Often seen slapping their fins and tails and breaching the clear blue waters of the Humpback Highway on their way to the Kimberley Coast breeding grounds, Ningaloo, Town Beach, Sunrise Beach and Bundegi Beach are premier whale watching destinations. In a first for Western Australia, tours to swim with humpback whales are available out of both Exmouth and Coral Bay while snorkelling with Ningaloo humpbacks provides not only a whole new perspective on the size and majesty of these magnificent creatures but also the perfect escape from the stress of everyday life. Located 1,200 kilometres north of Perth, you too can discover boating and discover Ningaloo Reef.
