In Detail

Awarded the Gold Medal for Best Adventure Tour at the 2010 Western Australia Tourism Awards, Ningaloo Reef Dreaming is all about diving, snorkeling and cruising the way it should be. Fun. Safe. Easy. Wonder-full!  Our goal is simple – to enable our customers to experience the wonders of the Ningaloo Reef in a way that delights them, educates them, keeps them safe, and coming back for more.

Whaleshark cruises with a BIG difference!

Swimming with a whaleshark is one of those experiences you will never forget.  Don’t miss the opportunity to snorkel and see the grace and beauty of these awesome gentle giants as they glide through the pristine waters of the Ningaloo.

What’s the BIG difference with Ningaloo Reef Dreaming’s whaleshark tour?  On average, our customers consistently spend more time actually swimming with a whaleshark than on any other tour.  How?  We are the only company to own and operate our own spotter plane.   Most whaleshark tours normally share one spotter plane, and any whalesharks it finds, between them.  Whilst it costs us (not you) more, our own plane finds you your very own whaleshark to swim with, rather than you having to wait for a turn behind customers on other whaleshark tours.  (Our plane stays in the air looking for whalesharks throughout the day until either you have swum with one, or the tour ends at around 4pm.)

We also offer a no-sighting guarantee – you either swim with a whaleshark or get to come out on our next available whaleshark tour free of charge to try again.  When combined with our competitive prices, non-divers being able to try SCUBA diving for free during the tour, and divers being able to dive the Ningaloo Reef for just $55 extra - not to mention getting free photos of your day on our tour – we believe we offer the best value whaleshark tour in Exmouth.  We’d love the opportunity to take you and your friends or family out and share this amazing experience with you.

Dive the Exmouth Navy Pier

Whatever else you do on your holiday, don’t miss out on this dive! One of the top 10 dives in the world (, this is diving at its very best!

Descend into one of Mother Nature’s own giant aquariums, and experience a truly stunning density and variety of marine life, both HUGE and small.  Swim with giant cod, manta and stingrays, sharks, big turtles, dolphins, moray eels, massive schools of fish, soft corals, nudibranches and more. 

Ningaloo Reef Dreaming is the only dive company appointed by the Department of Defence to run dives on the Navy Pier, as it remains a fully operational military facility.  The dive is open to both certified divers (who MUST have dived in the last 12 months), and to everyone else to do as a Resort Dive accompanied throughout by a qualified SCUBA instructor.

Dive the Muiron Islands and the Ningaloo Reef

Dive some of the best dive-sites in WA, and see why many rate the Ningaloo Reef as better than the Great Barrier Reef as a dive destination.  Spend an amazing day on our comfortable, purpose built dive-boats, diving the internationally acclaimed Muiron Islands or the world-famous Ningaloo Reef.  Dolphins, manta rays, turtles, sharks, giant moray eels – even humpbacks – its all here just waiting for you to come and get wet.

Dive Courses that fit into your holiday    

Been dreaming about learning to dive, or upgrading your dive qualifications so you can dive at night (it’s a different world down there!!!), dive deeper or even become a dive professional?  Come do one of our “Ultimate Dive Courses” – we call them this because every one of them includes a dive on the Exmouth Navy Pier, one of the top 10 dive sites in the world, at no extra cost.  Its our way of making sure you get the best possible value for your money.

Eco-wildlife adventure cruises

Join us for one of Exmouth’s most popular tours and cruise into the ocean paradise of the Ningaloo Reef, to search for and snorkel with its world-famous marine life – whales (July to November), manta-rays (July to November), turtles dolphins, dugongs, huge schools of fish, hard and soft corals of amazing colours, and so much more.  Find out for yourself why the Ningaloo Reef has an international reputation as one of the world’s last untouched ocean paradises that is so easily accessible. 

We use our own spotter plane on many tours to find the best marine life for our customers to view and swim with – its just another way that we try and offer you the best tour in town, and one of the best experiences of your holiday.

Whale-watching cruises

From July to November, the Gulf off Exmouth becomes a nursery for humpback whales and their calves (baby whales), as part of their annual migration along the Western Australian coast.  Get close and personal with a whale whilst watching them frolic in the warm waters of the Gulf, breaching, tail-slapping and bonding with their young.  (Of all the whales, the humpback has the most awe-inspiring surface behaviours.)  During your cruise, you will also get to see an amazing range of other marine life inhabiting the Ningaloo, including dolphins, turtles, sea snakes, dugongs and manta rays… and so much more.

Manta ray adventure tours

Our fastest growing tour, customers have the opportunity to snorkel up close and personal with these amazingly graceful animals, known as the “eagles of the sea”.  Watch in wonder as these awe-inspiring creature s emerge from the deep blue of the sea, circle you, loop around you, glide so effortlessly through the water.  (If you don’t bring an underwater camera you are just being silly!)  And also get to see the other amazing marine life of the Ningaloo during your day out – dolphins, turtles, dugongs, colourful soft and hard corals etc. 

We use our own spotter plane on many tours to find the best marine life for our customers to view and swim with – its just another way that we try and offer you the best tour in town, and one of the best experiences of your holiday.
