Top 10 Reasons to Choose Ningaloo Ecology Cruises
There's thousands of reasons really, but these are the ones we hear most often from our customers...
1 Thousands of positive feedback!
We are extremely fortunate to have had an opportunity to provide many great memories to so many people, of all walks of life, age and gender. Feel free to browse through our frequently updated Feedback page to read about the experiences of others onboard with us or read about the experiences of others while onboard with us on our 5-Star rating on TripAdvisor. Even more customer comments and reviews on our Facebook page!
2 We are a multi - award winning business!
Our business practices were recognised in the prestigious WA Tourism Awards! We are very excited about the above as this recognition is only given to businesses that “stand out” from the crowd of hundreds of tourism venues state-wide. As Bronze Medallists in the ECOTOURISM category we are further instilled in showcasing the beauty of the Ningaloo Reef whilst spreading the message of conservation for future generations.
Thus, our accolades from the previous years include: 2013 and 2012 WA Tourism Award Bronze Medalist (ECOTOURISM), 2012 FACET Golden Guide Award Finalist (Alek!), WA Tourism Award Finalists (ECOTOURISM) in 2011, 2010 as well!
We are also winners of the 2015, 2014, and 2013 TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence!
3 No minimum numbers!
As a Gold Member of the Exmouth Visitor Centre we are guaranteeing a peace of mind to the customers as well as improved professionalism and security to all booking agents (nation-wide and international) with an instant tour confirmation and “no minimum numbers” policy at the time of booking for most of our tours.
4 We share with those in need…
We believe that Giving is the Greatest Reward – and therefore we make ongoing donations to humanitarian and environmental charities (thousands of dollars so far!). Above philanthropy is by no means driven because we’re abundantly wealthy or anything – it is simply our way of trying to make an “idealistic” (in our minds) world a better place. More information in the Helping Others tab.
5 National Accreditation.
Please note that we not only meet but exceed the high standards required by our endorsement under the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program.
6 Large glass panels allowing viewing of the marine biodiversity only inches below your toes!
The unique design of our vessels allows you to get very, very close to the wonders below you. Have a look at pictures in our photo gallery to see how close you can get to the action with us!
7 Clear, warm waters all year round.
An amazing minimum 10+ meters underwater visibility (or we don’t go). Tantabiddi enjoys a built-in natural “thermostat” with the warm Leeuwin current in winter time and cool Ningaloo Current in the summer time – thus keeping the water temperatures at a steady 21C-27C all year round. Joy!
8 Free snorkel gear provided.
Whether adults or kids we have it all. We also have flotation devices for customers not-so confident in the water. We also offer a selection or prescription masks for the short-sighted snorkelers to enhance their underwater experience. If you wish, please feel free to bring your own snorkel gear as you may already be more familiar with it.
9 Free bus transfer to/from the Ningaloo Reef.
Passengers on selected snorkelling tours as well as the seasonal whale watching tours can enjoy the comforts of our very modern, fully Air-Conditioned Toyota Coaster bus. The air con is much appreciated, especially in warmer summer months…
10 See more with us.
The distinctive design of our Coral Viewing, Snorkelling, and Coastal Explorer Tour gives customers an opportunity to see the Mildura Shipwreck, Jurabi Turtle Discovery Centre, and the Lighthouse Lookout which will greatly enrich your experience on the Ningaloo Reef with us. All stops are accompanied by a commentary from our experienced guides.
The unique and very shallow-draft design of both of our glass bottom boat vessels allow them to reach places other vessels simply cannot access – thus giving you an opportunity to see sights few have seen before!
