At Ningaloo Reef Dive our aim is to provide you a unique experience within one of the worlds most amazing natural environments; The Ningaloo Reef Marine Park. The diversity of the Ningaloo Reef provides us the opportunity to offer you a range of experiences unlike any other travel destination on earth.
Among the hundreds of varieties of reef fish and hard corals that make the reef their home, the waters off Coral Bay are home to a year round population of manta rays, green turtles, bottlenose dolphins, dugong, and reef sharks - to name a few.
The annual coral spawning during March/April announces the arrival of our most awesome visitors; whalesharks. The biggest fish in the ocean (believed to grow up to 18 metres in length) appear every year on the NIngaloo Reef to feed on dense populations of plankton which thrive on the movement of warm tropical waters to the area brought by the Leeuwin current. By the end of June they have moved on as mysteriously as they arrived.
As whaleshark season is winding down we begin to have sightings of Humpback whales on their annual northern migration along the fringes of the Ningaloo Reef, other whale species, such as minke, and even blue whales have been known to frequent the waters off Coral Bay right through to November each year. Female Loggerhead and Hawksbill turtles return to the beaches where they were born to lay their eggs, and we begin to see them as the season for whales is coming to an end.
