We had a great time on the tour today and saw lots of fish and turtles and even a few sharks. The duration was great too as we had our wriggling toddler on board with us. Lucy and Matt were great and we learnt lots about the reef and wildlife. Highly recommend!

We went on the one hour reef trip. It’s easy to get to the launch jetty. You don’t need a 4wd and there are clean toilets there. We had lots of room and a viewing window each. We saw hundreds of fish , turtles and masses of coral. Some of the coral was gigantic. All of it was explained well by the friendly crew. Everyone enjoyed the trip , from the little kids to the oldies. This one is for everyone. A must do for your trip 🙂

We went on a "bad day" for wind and it was still such an amazing experience. The boat being semi-submerged makes it perfect for being out of the wind and viewing fish. I was blown away at how much we got to see. Can't wait to come back and do it all over again! Amazing to young kids who might be a bit unsure of the ocean/boats but love turtles!

Thanks to the team at View Ningaloo, our family had a great time on the Coral viewing and snorkelling tour this morning. The commentary was informative and the views great from the semi submersible viewing windows. They provided all the equipment to make our snorkelling experience safe and enjoyable.

The wind picked right up on the day we were due to go out and the operator's shifted the trip to make it as comfortable as possible. We were hosted by Alex who was extremely knowledgeable about the local marine environment. We saw heaps of marine life including 4 turtles, a 1000 yo hard coral and and large numbers of a wide range of fish. The snorkelling was great despite the high winds. We went out with our 5 and 2 yo no trouble at all. Would highly recommend these guys.
