Swim with marine life on the stunning Ningaloo reef
Finding excursions to suit all the family that don’t break the bank can be tricky. It’s hard to strike the right balance to keep both adults and kids entertained. One of the best ways to keep all the family happy is to go for an adventure in the ocean. Tours like the Glass Bottom Boat Exmouth have it all; sun, sea, boats, marine life, and underwater architecture. Truly something for everybody.
Give the whole family a thrill in the custom-built, semi-submersible Sub Sea Explorer. Explore the marine life and underwater architecture in the Tanderbiddi sanctuary zone on the incredible Ningaloo Reef. The Sub Sea Explorer has become a firm favourite for families and ocean lovers because it’s the only vessel in Exmouth, Western Australia where you can actually sit below the water line to marvel at the marine life and coral gardens. The vessel holds up to thirty people, so it’s spacious and not overly packed. It’s sort of like having your very own luxury cinema just below sea level.
The Ningaloo reef is world-famous for its corals and marine life, making this family outing more than just an amazing day out. It’s a great way to learn more about the underwater ecology in the Coral Coasts, thanks to the audio commentary provided. You’ll discover shipwrecks, the maritime history of the reef, and the impact of the Leeuwin Current on the bountiful flora and fauna in the zone. All without getting your feet wet! The boat offers great protection from the elements if there are family members who prefer to keep out of the sun and wind.
If there are photography lovers in the family, the glass bottom boat makes it perfect for snapping pictures and videos without any glare from the reflection. For those who want an even closer view, there’s a snorkelling tour run by trained snorkel guides where you can get an up-close view of the Ningaloo coral gardens and swim with sub-tropical fish, turtles, and rays. All snorkelling gear is provided as part of the tour, so there’s no need to splash out on your own kit. The deck area on the vessel is a perfect spot to go relax, sunbathe, or even do a spot of whale watching.
The tour is a must if you’re looking for something different to do with the whole family. It’s an adventure they’ll never forget and they will even learn something too.
