Shore Thing is one of the newest diving liveaboards in Australia and was first to offer a Ningaloo liveaboard dive trip. Diving from Coral Bay this Ningaloo Liveaboard has access to many Ningaloo Reef dive sites.

Shore Thing is a purpose-built, Roger Hill designed and beautifully appointed, liveaboard 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 and can cope with all weather conditions.

Shore Thing’s helm features comfortable seating so guests can enjoy the journey alongside their captain with a bird’s eye view of the natural wonders of the Ningaloo Reef. Otherwise relax on the forward deck and trampoline area, in the shade of the sails. The saloon area has ample room to seat all guests in comfort. The large back deck area is well shaded and a lovely area for outdoor dining.

Choose from 3-night Getaway, 5-night Escape or join them together for a 8-night Ultimate Ningaloo Trip.

All tours depart from Coral Bay at 4 pm and disembark Coral Bay approximately 12:30pm. Coral Bay is accessible from Exmouth using via a bus that also calls at Learmonth airport on the way and with timing to meet both the Shore Thing embarkation and disembarkation times, as well as the local flight times. Coral Bay also has an air strip, useful only if you are chartering a light plane

Accommodation on board is orientated toward small numbers to ensure your unique experience, with a maximum of 10 guests. Shore Thing has 4 toilets and 4 showers on board and beautifully designed cabins for privacy and comfort. Cabin types include:

  • Stateroom King – Private Room featuring en-suite with toilet and shower, air-conditioning, fan and king bed
  • Deluxe Double Cabin – Private room featuring air-conditioning, fan and double bed with shared facilities.
  • Stateroom Twin – Private Room featuring en-suite with toilet and shower, air-conditioning, fan and twin beds.
  • Stateroom Triple – Private Room featuring en-suite with toilet and shower, air-conditioning, fan and double bed with additional single bunk or 3 single beds.

Scuba diving trips onboard Shore Thing are ideal for small groups, dive clubs and couples. Catering for only a maximum of 8 divers there is no chance of being on an overcrowded dive site.

Inner reef dive sites offer brilliant coral coverage and a safe haven for turtles, rays, reef sharks along with all the smaller critters, such as nudibranchs and moray eels. Outer reef dive sites include wall dives, historic shipwrecks and reef ledges, known cleaning stations for sharks and manta rays and many more!!

A qualified PADI divemaster, or instructor, oversees all dives and will assist with all of your equipment and make your scuba diving holiday one to remember for all the right reasons.

Scuba diving activities are accommodated on all scheduled tours, however, the dedicated diving tours allow the tour to be tailored specifically to divers. Dedicated diving tours are offered on a regular basis each season, subject to demand.

One of the benefits of diving Ningaloo by liveaboard is that you are able to explore more of the Reef. Sail Ningaloo has found outer reef dive sites that no one else dives on, including ‘The Coliseum’, ‘Whale Rock’ and ‘The Ravine’ with depths up to 30m. Chances of seeing Manta Rays, sharks, and schooling pelagics is very high, not to mention the excellent coral coverage.
