Stunning reef and excellent staff - Highly recommended

We did a 5-day snorkeling and dive-trip on board the Shore Thing in July 2016, so this review is long overdue. But I had to write it, because it was the best trip we could have... read more

We joined the 4 day/3 night liveaboard trip with Sail Ningaloo. Our predominant reason for booking the trip was to scuba dive the Ningaloo Reef but we were unfortunately cursed with bad weather so didn't get to dive as much as we would have liked! Even still, the trip was thoroughly enjoyable. The snorkelling was world class, and we saw... More

Most impressed with the place, the people and particularly the exceptional marine life on the reef. The crew did a great job. Their care and consideration for those sailing with them was of the highest standard, both in responding to emails in setting up the trip and whilst on board. They are very knowledgeable about the locality, and when and... More

I was very sad to say good bye on my last day on Sure Thing. Made some great friendships and Thank you Sail Ningaloo for this surreal vacation. You welcomed us into your family and showed us your aquatic friends. I cannot give a stronger recommendation. If you dream of seeing Ningaloo reef at its best.... you cannot go past... More

What a fantastic trip we had. Pristine waters, an outstanding variety of corals, and sensational fish, with the local knowledge of the captain being invaluable in enabling us to see what we wanted to see.The care and attention by the crew was a joy to experience especially for one who is not a strong swimmer! And what they managed to... More

We would have sent this much sooner but computer problems ultimately led to new computer and now we're all set up! My husband and I are scuba divers that have had the blessing enough to dive in places such as Fiji, South Africa and the Galapagos to name a few. The diving here in Coral bay is pristine, shallow dives... More

Being a keen snorkeler and a non-swimmer is a pretty inconvenient combination. But luckily for me, I came across the Sail Ningaloo crew, who could not have done more to put me at ease on the water and show me the sights of the stunning Ningaloo Reef. I was lucky enough to encounter reef sharks, stingrays, turtles and a whole... More

We had the most amazing three days onboard Shore Thing - and were lucky enough to have the boat all to ourselves. Jessie, Hayley and Katia were an outstanding crew. We were lucky with the weather and went on some of the most unique and beautiful snorkel and scuba dives we've ever experienced. Highlights included fishing for squid off the... More

Amazing Crew (Luke, Andrew and Dougie), insanely awesome dives, best food I've ever had on aboat and lots of fun and wildlife (thanks to the owner/skipper/one-man-show Luke). I'd love to go again (and if the opportunity comes, I definitely will). I highly recommend it, do not hesitate about the price...it's worth much more, I promise!

The dive instructor on board, Andrew: an experienced dive instructor. The cook (forgot his name): a good cook and always only fresh food on the table. The cabins: first-rate. Sailing/snorkelling/diving: exceptional, with... More
