SWIMMING WITH MANTA RAYS IN AUSTRALIA
Manta rays are one of the largest species of ray to inhabit the ocean and are truly amazing to encounter. Their pectoral fins have evolved into wide triangular ‘wings’, which they use to propel themselves smoothly through the open ocean. The species of manta ray that visits Coral Bay can have a wingspan of up to 4 metres.
Swimming with manta rays is not dangerous as manta rays do not share the stingray’s trait of a barbed tail or ‘stinger’ and are harmless to humans.
THE BEST MANTA RAY TOURS FROM CORAL BAY ECOTOURS
We take our guests out on our eco-vessel all-year-round for manta ray tours. Coral Bay Ecotours’ boat Kurni Ku is specifically designed for shallow water cruising and wildlife interactions and is run by our fully qualified team, who also give informative talks on the wildlife seen from the boat. Its name comes from the Yamatji languages of the Baiyungu people (the traditional Australian occupants of the beautiful Exmouth, Coral Bay and Ningaloo region) and means ‘to seek’, though you won’t have to look very hard to find something amazing. On top of this, our guests are often able to see many other inquisitive marine animals such as turtles, reef sharks, and dolphins on this tour.
