Winter Forecast: Warm & Sunny
What a stunner of a day! In fact, the whole month is set to be lovely, high 20's during the day with plenty of sunshine to caress your weary winter blues away. Coral Bay, as well as the rest of northern Western Australia, is a haven for outdoor activities during the dark, damp days of August here in the Southern Hemisphere (or a great break in the heat and humidity of summer in the Northern Hemisphere!).
Coral Bay EcoTours is the longest continually owned and operated eco - safari company on the Ningaloo Reef! Since 1994 we have been delighting clients with first class interaction into our incredible marine world, here in our little slice of paradise, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site (one of only two in all of Western Australia!). Not only do we swim with Manta Rays year round, this is the season to check off your bucket list - a swim with the mighty Humpback Whale! Absolutely a life changing experience. With over 30,000 migrating through our waters between June and October, you are almost guaranteed a sighting, if not a swim. In fact, Coral Bay is one of the only locations on the planet you can interact and swim with Humpback Whales, during the month of July! It's never too early to book in advance for the rest of this year and into 2019 when the largest fish in the ocean returns - Whale Shark season begins in March. BOOK NOW
Sure, it's a bit of a drive to come up from Perth, but that is part of the adventure! Stop into Kalbarri and canoe the Murchison river for a day before heading into Carnarvon and enjoying this "banana belt" of the west, where you can tour plantations and get your fill of fresh fruit, vege's, local meat, and seafood before ending in the delightful hamlet of Coral Bay. With over 300 days of sunshine annually, Western Australia is always a sure bet. Still have time on your hands? Continue up the coast a bit to Onslow, the gateway to the Mackerel Islands, where you will not find any better fishing in all of Oz.
