Guided Snorkel Trip

Stretching for 280 kms along Australia’s west coast Ningaloo Reef is one of the world’s longest fringing coastal reefs.  Isolated by distance and a rugged arid hinterland, the vibrancy of the marine life, as soon as you dip below the surface of the water, is exhilarating.  Untouched by coastal degradation or pollution Ningaloo is arguably the best preserved reef complex in the world and it lies just a few metres offshore from Sal Salis. 

There are numerous picturesque beaches offering stunning drift snorkels and sheltered bays where children can play. A drift snorkel just a few metres offshore reveals a wealth of life, with huge staghorn coral formations, anemones, clownfish, rays and sponge gardens. All snorkelling gear and wet suits are provided; and if you are a beginner (or just needing a refresher) the Sal Salis guides will be happy to give a lesson or just share a few tips.

The reef protects a lagoon that is on average only 2-4 metres deep and is rich in marine life. There are limitless snorkel sites along the Ningaloo coastline and a variety of ways to access them. Slip on a snorkel or diving gear and swim with graceful manta rays, see dolphins and schools of brightly coloured fish in the clearest turquoise water imaginable.

Ningaloo is also a major breeding ground for hawksbill, loggerhead and green turtles, which come ashore to lay their eggs in the dunes at night (between September and December). The other gentle giant of the sea, the manta ray, also allows swimmers to share its world whilst the coral lagoons reveal huge schools of fish, reef sharks, smaller rays and a multitude of other species living amongst this pristine reef.
