Up at Ningaloo and swam with whale sharks, manta rays and saw several humpbacks. The big three the locals tell me.

The manta rays put on the best show.
I can safely say,that,that is something that I will never do.It does sound amazing though.

Whale sharks are filter feeders, so no danger to people.., but agree it does sound amazing..

Unless you're really small.

Indeed! What a treat that would be to see.

Guys
It was a great day. These guys are huge and just appear out of the mirk gliding towards you. As they pass you realize these guys are big, their tails must be 12' ft high.
But as I said the mantas did it for me. 2 m across easily and fly effortlessly around you. Majestic grace.
Ningaloo is a long way from anywhere but walk out waist deep and there's is the reef. It recently got world heritage status. I hope that's a good thing. In some ways after seeing Cairns and the what's happend to the GbR, at least in shore, it's a WA secret I'd like to keep - except amoungst you few!

Just looking to book Coral Bay for July. Can I ask how much the Whale Shark tour was? And where did you stay?

If it's anything like Monkey Mia, it's a lot of $$$ for basic accommodation, but the memories are priceless xx

I realised earlier that I might be missing company - the jehovahs witnesses called today and I kept them on the doorstep for nearly an hour
