Bespoke Boat Tours

On our luxury vessel, the Wave Rider, we aim to make each of our bespoke Ningaloo boat tours as exciting as the last, customising every tour to suit our guests. We’re passionate about introducing you to the amazingly diverse reef environment, in a way that’s great for you and for our precious marine life. If you’re tired of being ‘just a number’ on tours, join our experienced crew instead. We have incredible moments with wildlife daily, because we specialise in bespoke boat tours for intimate groups. Every tour on our luxury vessel is a chance to make magic memories and truly ‘Live Ningaloo.’



As others have noted before, the Live Ningaloo team are a wonderful blend of professional, relaxed, friendly, knowledgeable and passionate – about making sure every guest on board has the best opportunity to not only swim with the whale sharks and humpback whales, but learn so much about the treasure that is Ningaloo Reef. We also saw manta rays, flying fish, sea snakes, and marine birds galore. The luxury is they have a maximum of 10 guests on board at any one time, all of whom can be in the water with the whales sharks every time if they want.…

This was an experience I have waited 27 years to have… so I did my research! Thank goodness we chose Live Ningaloo.

Could not recommend these guys more. My partner and I just came back and it was everything we wanted. As environmentally conscious people this was the main reason I chose these guys.

Second to that, the smaller amount of people just made it so awesome. It was a lot nicer that feeling like one of a huge number of people, and ten guests is exactly what you want. Would never be able to…

A bucket list item and we can’t thank this team enough…only 10 guests allowed on the boat, more intimate/personal experience both with them and the whale sharks. 12/10! Would definitely recommend – we did it twice it was so good! Also – I’m in a wheelchair and despite being their first “wheelly” they coped brilliantly. Everyone on the boat had a brilliant time – entertaining, environmentally considerate and worth every cent. 31/05/17

As an experiential travel provider, Sal Salis seeks to immerse guests in the natural world, and help them learn more about Australia’s unique flora, fauna, conservation challenges and our varied landscapes. For almost all our guests one of the highlights of their stay is a day exploring beyond the Reef – in the early part of our season the quest is to swim with whale sharks, later in the year it becomes all about humpback whales and throughout the year there are manta rays, dolphins, other fish and whale species, rare dugong sightings and much more. From its inception Live…
