Comments We did 5 nights on Shore Thing, which is a beautiful spotlessly clean 5 year old sailboat catamaran. Sail Ningaloo is a tip top operation and they helped us with planning and accommodation when we were in the Exmouth area as well as a whale shark trip . They also offer three night trips but definitely too short. Unless you are on a dedicated dive trip itís half dives and snorkeling so very well suited to non diver partners. Diving is shallow 10 meters, corals are healthy though not colourful, fish life is good, a few wrecks, and we saw dugongs and other exciting marine life from the deck. Great crew. Only 4 cabins, very nicely appointed and the two double bed cabins have a hatch above the bed so you can look up at the star studded sky, magical. There were no other boats in the area.
