Exmouth Town Beach

Madaffari Drive, Exmouth WA 6707
The Exmouth coastline offers a number of beautiful sandy beaches and the Town Beach is the most accessible and closest to the town centre. The beach is a safe place to swim, especially at high tide even with children. Drive your four wheel drive right down onto the beach and set up for a fun day out. Take a stroll along the white sand at low tide and comb the beach for many of the ocean's treasures. Windsurfing is a popular water sport at Town Beach and with a yacht club located on the beach, yachting is also a regular activity. During their annual migration from July to October, humpback whales can often be spotted close to shore at Town Beach....

Yardie Creek, Cape Range National Park

Yardie Creek car park, Exmouth WA 6707
The Yardie Creek Top Trail is located in the spectacular Yardie Creek Gorge, one hour drive from Exmouth. The ancient gorge has deep blue water, red limestone cliff faces and a wonderful array of birds and wildlife including the rare black-footed wallaby and red kangaroos. From the top, the views into the creek and out to the Ningaloo Reed are purely spectacular. Starting at river level, the 1.5 kilometre walk trail slowly climbs up the red rock cliffs over a flat path which then becomes harder as it narrows and requires navigation of rocks and small creek line gullies. The trail follows the gorge, becoming more difficult as you ascend the range; however the views into the gorge are well worth the effort. From the top of the gorge walls, look out for the wide variety of birds and yellow footed rock wallabies that inhabit the rock walls. All activities start at the Yardie Creek carpark where there are toilets and picnic areas. Camping in Western Australia's natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online for a trial period....

You will have a great vantage point and the assistance of our experienced team who guide you on the tour.

The Ningaloo Marine Life Viewing and Snorkelling Tour runs 01 November through to December and for part of March every year. 

Which marine creatures will you see?

The Ningaloo Marine Life Viewing and Snorkelling Tour runs year round. Depending on the season, you will be likely to see Manta Rays (August to November) and Humpback Whales (August to October). You may also be lucky enough to spot sea turtles (October to March), dolphins and more. Please note that this tour offers the opportunity to view the creatures of the outer reef from the comfort of our vessel. It does not include a spotter plane or swimming with Whale Sharks or Humpback Whales.  Please see our other tours for an extended full day tour options with swimming.

Snorkelling the lagoon

Following the marine life viewing, we will travel back into the Ningaloo Lagoon, the shallower sheltered inner area of the Ningaloo Reef. The lagoon is a wonderland for snorkellers, with an average depth of between 2 and 4 metres and warm waters. You are likely to view stunning tropical fish and many types of coral when you snorkel over the coral reef.  The protected lagoon forms an important nursery for hundreds of types of fish, molluscs and coral.

Who is this tour suitable for?

This intimate tour for a maximum of 10 guests is ideal for those who prefer to view marine life from the security of a vessel on the open ocean, before snorkelling in the protected waters of the lagoon. It’s perfect for families with children and for those looking for a shorter, relaxed half day tour option.

The snorkelling component is best for moderately competent swimmers over the age of 10 years who have snorkelled before. We may be able to accept children younger than 10 who are competent swimmers to snorkel and can also cater to some special needs and movement restrictions – please contact us to discuss. High-quality wetsuits and flippers, including children’s sizes, and flotation devices are provided as required.

Can you guarantee I’ll see particular marine creatures on my tour?

We compare all our tours to an African Safari, where we search for animals in the wild. This tour is focussed on viewing Ningaloo marine life which is active at the time of your tour, and this can vary through the seasons. We do not use a spotter plane for this tour and cannot guarantee you will see a Humpback Whale, Whale Shark or any other specific marine life. For our tours that use spotter planes to track ocean life, please see our other tours.

Where can I join this tour?

Our luxury vessel, Wave Rider, departs from Tantabiddi Boat Ramp just north of the Cape Range national park entrance in Exmouth. Complimentary transfers are provided to and from Exmouth township for your tour. Advance Bookings for all tours are essential. Due to the small, intimate scale of our tours with a maximum of 10 places, we recommend booking several months in advance to avoid disappointment.

Not just Whale Shark tour guides! - Our Environmental support

In order to provide better protection for whale sharks it is crucial that we increase our understanding of whale shark biology, ecology, movement patterns and life history.

We are involved with ECOCEAN (Australia) which is a non-government, not-for-profit organization based in Western Australia working towards scientific research, education and conservation of the marine environment. We participate in research programs including providing our vessels for tagging, Telemetry and photo ID programs.

We also participate in DPAW for research and collecting important data on the biology and behavior of the whale shark. With Ningaloo Blue Dive's full support DPAW spend the Whale Shark months of the year collating field data, raising the necessary resources to continue the organization, and increasing community awareness for the whale shark and the marine environment in general through various education outreach programs.
