Overview

Coral Bay Ecotours is a fully accredited tourism business of Australia, an adventure tour company working within the realms of the magnificent Ningaloo Reef, Western Australia. Come on board our Glass Bottom Boat for our 1 hour coral view, 2 hour coral view and 2 snorkels. Why not visit our resident turtles on our 3 hour turtle Ecotour, where we can observe them feeding, then enjoy 2 snorkels. How about a fantastic marine ecotour for the opportunity to swim with the awe inspiring manta ray, in what has become almost a daily event. Embrace adventure snorkeling with these gentle giants. Coral Bay is also one of the few places in the world where you can snorkel with the magnificent whale sharks - the world’s biggest fish. It certainly is an experience of a lifetime and the main seasonal attraction between March and July for guests from all over the world. For the second year, we will be part of the humpback interaction trial, where you may have the opportunity to see a humpback from in the water! This takes whale watching to a whole other level! Season begins August and finishes in November, but be quick as it may be the last year for this amazing experience!! We also run 3 hour whale watching tours during the season. Contact us now for more information.
