Manta Ray Interaction

Manta Ray Interactive Snorkel Tours

Join ‘Ningaloo Marine Interactions’ to snorkel with the majestic Manta Rays aboard Utopia.  With a shallow draft, our reef friendly vessel has a spacious fully shaded deck and comfy seating on the flybridge for optimum wildlife viewing.

Many visitors come to Ningaloo Reef to get away from the crowds, we pride ourselves on small, personalised groups to maximise your experience…

Our tours are EDU-TOURS and draw upon a wealth of knowledge gathered from our very own Marine Biologist Manta Ray Specialist with over 20 years experience in the Ningaloo area.

We use a spotter aircraft to assist us in finding the best Manta Rays to interact with. These magnificent creatures have a wing span of around 4 metres and are completely harmless… an underwater dance with a Manta Ray is one of life’s greatest experiences!

Your day will include snorkelling amongst beautiful coral gardens and the chance of observing other wildlife including turtles, dolphins, dugongs, humpback whales (seasonal) and more!

We pride ourselves on delivering you a memorable and informative day on the Ningaloo Reef, gaining a greater respect of all things Manta Ray with minimal impact on this fragile, pristine environment.

We offer you the chance to participate in research and give you the opportunity to name any newly discovered Manta Rays!!


Snorkel Equipment, Wetsuits, Morning/Afternoon Tea and Lunch provided.
