Our selection of optional excursions include scenic flights, helicopter rides, cruises, dinners, ballooning, fishing trips, four wheel drive tours, cultural experiences, and even camel riding.


Experiences available between 1 May 2018 - 30 November 2018

Sail With A Bunch of Animals Cruise (Monkey Mia)

Adult Price: AUD 99.00   Child Price: AUD 99.00

Sail With A Bunch of Animals Cruise

Potentially see the same animals as the morning “Wow! Wildlife Experience” but with a much better chance of seeing dugong since this is usually when we visit the Restricted- Access, Dugong Management Zone, which we are allowed into only once a day. Dugong feed on sea-grass. Shark Bay has the largest sea-grass banks in the world, and its 10,000 dugongs represent about 10% of the world’s dugong population. Although dugongs are shy and extremely difficult creatures to find and approach, we have over the last 14 years developed techniques for getting you close without disturbing them.

Shark Bay Scenic Flight (Monkey Mia)

Adult Price: AUD 225.00   Child Price: AUD 225.00

Shark Bay Scenic Flight

A 45 minute scenic flight crosses Freycinet Reach to the fascinating patchwork of salt ponds at Useless Loop. It then crosses the sandy finger of Bellefin Prong and out over the rugged Zuytdorp Cliffs. Following the cliffs northward to Australia's most westerly landfall at Steep Point and crosses part of Dirk Hartog Island. Keep you eye out for marine life
