Sail Ningaloo offer three, five and nine night sailing tours departing from Coral Bay on the Ningaloo Reef between March and December with scheduled departure dates suitable for singles, couples, families and group bookings. We also offer private tours from one day to 10 days with departure dates to suit specific requirements. Imagine gliding silently and effortlessly through crystal clear turquoise waters aboard a majestic catamaran, a towering mast holds firm — huge white sails full and round as a light breeze stirs ripples upon the waters. The sun warms your shoulders, a fresh breeze cools your face and you feel invigorated as you take a deep breath of clean pure ocean air. Deep in your soul there stirs a sense of excitement that comes with the anticipation of discovering new and exotic surprises, and the opportunity to rediscover your natural roots and rejuvenate your body, mind and soul. The underwater world of the Ningaloo Reef Marine Park 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, giant cods and reef sharks, quite possibly all on the one cruise.
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 our luxury live-aboard sailing tour from Coral Bay between the months of March and December.
