If you are wanting to access secluded, untouched reef and experience the world class scuba diving on Ningaloo Reef then this trip is a must do. Lady Ningaloo is equipped to run year-round liveaboard dive trips to the wonderful world heritage listed Ningaloo reef.
Over the duration of the trip you will visit numerous dive sites offering a wide variety of topography and depth range. This trip only caters for certified divers. Subject to weather conditions Lady Ningaloo expeditions will be travelling to two different areas of the Ningaloo. These are the ‘West Side’ and the ‘Muiron Islands’. Travelling the western side of the Cape Range peninsular is exposed to the ocean swells that travel from South Africa. You can expect visibility anywhere between 10m up to 40m depending on the time of year and weather conditions and depths range between 10-20m. The west side is where the whale sharks, humpback whales, manta rays, dugongs, spinner dolphins and orcas are usually sighted. The reef here is mainly made up of hard corals which are formed into large impressive structures and surge channels.
The Muiron Islands are located on the edge of the Exmouth Gulf. The Gulf is located on the Eastern side of Cape Range peninsular, and water flows into and out of the Gulf past the Muiron islands. This means there is an abundance of food in the water that makes the islands a soft coral paradise. Visibility at the islands is anywhere between 8-20m and depths range from 5-20m. The Exmouth gulf and the Muiron islands are predominantly known for the soft coral gardens and micro fauna such as Nudibranchs, however humpback whales and manta rays also use the protected waters to rest and feed.
