Full description
Join this 5 to 6 hour Marine Eco Safari aboard the Kurni-Ku, custom built to specifically navigate around the Heritage Listed Ningaloo Reef. It is the perfect way to experience one of the few places in the world with a resident population of Manta Rays all year round! Your tour begins at 8:00 AM at the Coral Bay Ecotours office (unless otherwise informed), followed by a short bus transfer to the jetty to board the vessel. Then you will head out for your first reef snorkel experience in Bills Bay, where you may encounter numerous fish, reef sharks, and other marine species and the beautiful coral gardens. After morning tea you will visit the sea turtle sanctuary where you can observe turtles feeding and surfacing for air. You will then head to Bateman’s Bay, where, with the assistance of a spotter plane, there is the opportunity to snorkel with Manta Rays. On the return home, you will stop for an afternoon snorkel.

This was by far the best excursion we have ever done! I booked this as a once in a lifetime experience for me and my two children and on the first jump, I had a panick attack and swam back to the boat, adamant to watch from afar. The staff were nothing short of bloody amazing!!! Patient doesn’t come close, they sat and spoke to me, calmed me down but to then spend the whole day by my side, enabling me to see the turtles, the manta rays twice and the sharks too is just unbelievable. Thank you so so much, you really did make this trip the best day ever

Excellent full day trip to snorkel with manta rays. The staff were friendly and professional, with one noticing that I wasn't confident and giving me the buoyancy float to link me to him while in the water. We snorkelled with a manta ray and had the option to go in again for an out-of-season juvenile whale shark, as well as spending time watching dolphins and turtles swimming alongside us.

I went in this trip as a solo traveller. The staff were friendly and professional. The tour was one of the best I have ever done. Reef sharks Matarays and Turtles. The plane spotter was amazing helping us chase the Mantarays. This trip is sooooo worth the money. Not trip to Coral Bay should be done without this trip.
