22 April - 30 April - Ningaloo Reef
Our first stop on Ningaloo Reef was Coral Bay at the southern end. Here we could snorkel off the beach. We also went on a boat tour which allowed us to swim with Manta Rays. There was a professional photographer (Migration Media) on the boat. You will see his photographs are watermarked and also they're much clearer than mine - grrrr.
Harry was entranced, so much so that he didn't watch where he was going!
After leaving Coral Bay we went north into Cape Range National Park where we camped at both Yardie Creek and Osprey campgrounds. Here you can snorkel straight off the beach or the rocks. These photos are of Yardie Creek, Turquoise Bay and Oyster Stacks.
My favourite place to snorkel was Oyster Stacks. The coral at Ningaloo isn't as colourful as the Great Barrier Reef but its accessibility and the marine life more than make up for it.
On the last day of snorkelling Jada saw a reef shark and exited stage left quicker than a speeding bullet, I saw a turtle having dinner which is what the following video shows.
