Scuba Diaries: Ningaloo Reef in Exmouth, Australia

Exmouth, Australia! Unless you are from Western Australia, or are a follower of great dive spots, you probably haven’t heard of Ningaloo Reef. But as anyone who has either dove or snorkeled on Ningaloo Reef around Exmouth will tell you, it rivals even the Great Barrier Reef in the east.  Many will even tell you that it is better, since you don’t need a boat and can literally just go right off shore and see amazing reef life. You don’t even have to be a diver, this reef is snorkeling friendly  For the whale sharks, they send out a spotter plane and call in the tour boat when one is spotted. Here are some great photos from my friend Rob Howes, from his latest trip to Ningaloo. All photos were taken by Rob.  Please pin all photos on Pinterest! Also check out 10 Things to do in Perth!

  1. Love those little puffers! Adding this to my list of places to snorkel around the world. That will be me, snorkeling every where I can and the husband telling me to get out of the water because I’ve already snorkeled enough. 🙂

  2. Those are very beautiful pictures. What camera do you use for your underwater shots?

    I can’t believe they send out spotter planes to look for whale sharks. That’s way too fancy.

    • ya, it’s a little fancy. Just read your post on Sipadan when I saw the title, because it’s the number one dive spot I want to visit! Love it! Next time i’m on Borneo… Hey, if you ever want to guest post, send me an email! nomad.justin@yahoo.com

  3. Nice photos! I’ve never dived off the West Coast, just the East Coast. You’ve inspired me to go through some of my photos and to get back in the water.

  4. I was discussing whale sharks with a guy who’d lived on Roatan the other day – and he understood that in Ningaloo they’re pretty much guaranteed. Was that your experience? Or are they seasonal, and you have to be lucky – i.e., the plane has to find one?
