Awesome three days in Coral Bay!

The variety of coral is breathtaking. So great to see a reef that is still thriving. Lots of big fish like sharks, rays, and groupers, but the wobegongs, cuttlefish, and octopus were my favorites. Several spots had interesting pass-throughs and giant coral configurations. On board everything was well set-up and the staff were excellent all round. Food was wonderful, including fresh baked bread!

The diving/snorkeling was amazing and the food was awesome. The staff were super friendly, knowledgeable, and professional.

Our trip exploring Ningaloo Reef on Shore Thing exceeded expectations. If it's not on your bucket list, cross off something else and put it at the top.

Without doubt, Ningaloo Reef and its marine life: innumerable small fish every colour of the spectrum, shy cuttlefish, rays of all sizes, close up sharks (black tip, white tip, wobbies, reef), bottlenose dolphins playing tag, turtles, mother and calf humpback whales frolicking near us for 30 minutes while we were under full sail, the glorious sunrise/sunsets. Oh, did I nearly forget the faultless crew? You get the idea.

Recommended for
Number 1: The knowledgable and hardworking crew: Tiana, Bonny and Luke were terrific. Number 2: Ningaloo Reef - beyond wonderful. Number 3: our co-guests were great: low maintenance, easy going, up for everything, considerate of others.
