Women’s Western Australia's Ningaloo Reef Sea Kayaking Adventure - 5 Days of Sea Kayaking on West Australia's Ningaloo Marine Park. This important coastal zone protects one of Australia’s most important tracts of reef - the Ningaloo Reef. It is one of the longest fringing reef systems in the world and only one of two coral reefs in the world that have formed on the western side of a continent. The Ningaloo Marine park stretches from Bundegi Beach near Exmouth for 260 km along the West Coast to Amherst Point south of Coral Bay. The name 'Ningaloo' comes from the local Aboriginal people and means a 'promontory' or 'point' of high land jutting into the sea.

Our Adventure begins in Exmouth in May, which is the optimum viewing time for Whale Sharks and the Waters of Ningaloo Reef are in absolute abundance. Quality Sea Kayaking, Snorkelling at every opportunity and some great inland gorge walks in ancient river canyons makes this adventure the trip of a lifetime where quintessential Australian landscape meets the Ocean in an explosion of life and colour. 

This is a women’s only trip where beginners are welcome. You don’t need any previous kayaking or camping experience. Most women who attend our trips, attending individually. We are a very welcoming community and support everyone who attends.

Ningaloo Reef Testimonial

The Ningaloo trip was perfection. Cape Range National Park and Ningaloo Reef are just beautiful. The trip leaders were awesome. Personable, knowledgeable, supportive and amazing cooks. The facilities and the food, for the fact you are in the middle of nowhere were outstanding. The pace was very Goldilocks, not too busy, not too slow, but Just Right. Plenty of time to relax while still seeing so many sights. Nothing was too strenuous and the trip leaders made you feel confident that you could participate safely in both the snorkeling and kayaking. Ending with two nights at the resort and an amazing whale shark experience. Who could ask for more.

From the laughs at camp to kayaking and camping, it really doesn't get any better. I can't recommend this trip enough. Do it! Best time of my life!
