Ningaloo Ecology Cruises

Ningaloo Ecology Cruises operates its purpose built glass bottom boat the “Reefviewer” from Tantabiddi.

This is the original and best coral and marine life viewing boat operating on the Ningaloo Reef in the Exmouth area. This section of Ningaloo Reef has an amazing variety of corals and other marine life. This is definitely your best chance of seeing marine life in their natural surroundings.

The Reefviewer’s shallow draft allows it to travel over the top of massive coral gardens and bommies giving you the best and closest view of this brilliant eco system. The shallow draft is also the least intrusive on the marine inhabitants allowing you to see more than on conventional vessels.

The skipper will give an interactive commentary on the reef system and its inhabitants as you see them. All this is set amidst the sparkling waters of the Ningaloo Marine Park with the backdrop of the Cape Range National Park.
