Shore Thing explores the remote Ningaloo Reef, a World Heritage Site, and departs from Coral Bay, Western Australia between March and December.

Shore Thing is a purpose-built, beautifully appointed sailing catamaran designed by Roger Hill. Its shallow draft ensures ideal access to the spectacular shallow inner reef lagoons as well as inner reef access for calm anchorage in all weather conditions. This is combined with a highly personable experience on board and an eco-friendly tourism policy.


Shore Thing features two king or twin cabins with ensuites and two deluxe double cabins with shared facilities. Each cabin is beautifully-designed for privacy and comfort. Stateroom cabins can also be configured as triple share or double plus extra bunk if desired.

On the upper deck, you'll find an elevated fly bridge with 360° views and comfortable seating for guests to enjoy the journey alongside their captain, with a bird’s eye view of the natural wonders of the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park.

Relax on the large impressive front deck and double trampoline area with nets for soaking up the sun or lazing in the shade of the sails. The saloon area is spacious with ample room to seat all guests in comfort. The large back deck area is well-shaded and has a lovely area for outdoor dining. 

The kitchen offers a diverse range of healthy cuisine prepared fresh on board daily, incorporating local fresh produce when seasonally available. Shore Thing also caters for special dietary requirements and allergies.

Non-alcoholic refreshments - water, brewed teas & coffee, fruit juice & soft drinks are available for free. A selection of quality beers, WA wine and select spirits are available to purchase.
