(Western Australia)

May 23-31, 2024

Join Us as we explore beautiful Ningaloo, Western Australia, the world's longest fringing reef and one of the best places on Earth to swim with whale sharks, manta rays and humpbacks.

The Ningaloo Reef in Australia’s North West is the world’s longest fringing reef system and offers some of the best opportunities for underwater photography anywhere in the world. The reef runs along the North West Cape, which is the closest point to where the western part of Australian continent meets the continental shelf.

The reef’s remoteness, the mixing of oceanic currents, and the strong protection it receives as one of the largest marine parks in Australia mean that it is one of the best places to encounter marine megafauna. Pilot Whales, Minke Whales, dolphins, dugongs, manta rays, orcas and other 'big' animals appear sporadically throughout May - anything can happen on Ningaloo Reef!
