DAY 1-5

Spend 5 days sea kayaking and snorkeling sections of Cape Range National Park within the sheltered, turquoise lagoons of Ningaloo Reef. We choose our kayaking routes depending on the prevailing breeze, returning by vehicle each night to our comfortable base camp.

Enjoy some downtime reading or relaxing in the white sand dunes as the sun sets, before each lively, social dinner.

On some days, we will take short bushwalks to explore the stunning gorges of Cape Range National Park, and visit the Milyering Visitor Centre.

At the end of Day 5, we’ll drop you at Mantaray’s Resort to relax and recharge for the next leg of your adventure! Tonight you have dinner on us (to the value of $70/person) at the award-winning onsite restaurant.


Our Whale Shark Cruise partners will pick you up after breakfast for a day of swimming with these gentle giants, a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Aboard the comfortable vessel you will learn about the habits of these peaceful creatures before you get the opportunity to jump in with them!

The day also includes lunch and a cruise in search of migrating humpbacks, dugong and more! Return to Mantaray’s in the afternoon to unwind and relax. On Saturday evening, enjoy a delicious dinner at Whalers Restaurant, Exmouth.
