Whale Sharks & Manta Rays, Ningaloo Reef  

Whale sharks and mantas are truly graceful giants of the fish world.  To help you capture the beauty of these magnificent animals, no matter what level of photography or videography experience you have, Scott Portelli will be on hand daily to mentor you.

The waters of Ningaloo are so diverse, you may even see humpback whales, turtles, dolphins and dugongs to mention just a few.  In your down time, you’ll have the chance to photograph emus, red kangaroos, black-footed rock wallabies, native birds and more.  There will be time each evening to review and edit your images, to get the best possible results.

We work with Licensed operator Live Ningaloo who provide a sustainable and professional ethical approach to working with marine life and cetaceans in World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Marine Park. With award winning Live Ningaloo we take a single swimming group approach to interacting with these amazing creatures.
