Sail Ningaloo’s philosophy is focused on immersing our guests in a purely natural world class experience, with a high emphasis on interpretive and educational interaction whilst maintaining a minimum impact, environmentally sustainable tourism policy. Get ready for an unbelievable adventure of a lifetime when you join Sail Ningaloo on a luxury live aboard sailing charter from Coral Bay, exploring the World Heritage nominated Ningaloo Reef Marine Park.
The underwater world of the Ningaloo Reef is a hidden treasure. It is amongst only a handful of coral reef systems in the world that is still in pristine condition. The abundance and variety of marine life and spectacular corals is believed to be second to none in the world, it is very likely we will encounter Humpback Whales, Dolphins, Dugong, Manta Rays, marine Turtles, Whale Sharks, giant cods and reef sharks, quite possibly all on the one cruise.
Activities available while on board “Shore Thing” include snorkelling, scuba diving (by prior arrangement, additional costs apply), kayaking, observing marine life in their natural environment, photographing the beautiful natural surrounds, star gazing, beach combing or just plain relaxing surrounded by the pristine beauty of the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park.
‘Shore Thing’ is a purpose built, Roger Hill designed and beautifully appointed, live‐aboard sailing catamaran, 51 feet in length and 27 feet in width. Being a catamaran she is extremely comfortable and stable, both at sea and at anchor. With a shallow draft ‘Shore Thing’ is an ideal vessel for accessing the many spectacular shallow inner reef lagoons and also assures easy inner reef access for calm anchorage in all weather conditions. We can take you to places and show you things no one else can!
The helm features comfortable seating so guests may enjoy the journey alongside their captain with a bird’s eye view of the natural wonders of the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park. Otherwise relax on our large impressive forward deck and double trampoline area, soaking up the sun or lazing in the shade of the sails. The saloon area is spacious with ample room to seat all guests in comfort. The large back deck area is well shaded and a lovely area for outdoor dining. A well appointed galley ensures our hosts can create tantalising gourmet meals to satisfy your taste buds.
