Kayaking Around Exmouth & Ningaloo Reef

Ningaloo Reef is home to the world’s largest fringing reef and can be reached by just a short paddle or swim in many places. Nowhere else on the planet can you access a large coral reef so easily. What’s more, it’s made the  World Heritage list for its incredible biodiversity and the ‘bucket list’ as one of the few places in the world where you can swim with the largest fish in the ocean, the gentle whale shark.

More than 500 tropical fish species inhabit the 300 kilometre long reef. They live in and around more than 200 species of coral.

DPaW has provided ten kayak-only moorings at great spots along the Ningaloo coast.  You can simply launch off the beach, take your snorkel gear, and head out to one of the moorings.

Each mooring can take up to ten kayaks so there is no need to book, or worry about crowding.

A leaflet with the exact GPS locations is available in Coral Bay, Exmouth visitor centre or at the Ningaloo entrance to the park. The leaflet also directs you – eg: ‘paddle NW from the beach for 1.5km. This is sufficient to find the moorings so you do not need a GPS.

Some excellent kayaking locations around Exmouth & Coral Bay for you to explore include:

Bundegi Reef:

Located just 10 minutes drive north of the Exmouth township, Bundegi Beach is a popular family beach with boat ramp, toilets and kiosk.

Visitors can launch boats from the boat ramp and swim, canoe/kayak, fish and snorkel at this picture perfect sandy beach, but the currents can be strong.

Bundegi Reef marks the start of the Ningaloo Marine Park and is a popular dive and snorkel site.  It features two kayak moorings situated about 3.5km south from the the beach and boat ramp.  The Reef itself is located approximately 200m straight out from the boat ramp and stretches over 1km in length.  With and abundance of Coral and marine life it offers a great kayaking location.  The clear bottomed kayaks are ideal for reef viewing, while the fishing kayaks are great for throwing a line in.

Bundegi Beach is within the Bundegi Recreation Zone: recreational fishing from the shore is permitted.

Exmouth Gulf Fishing:

Ideally suited for when wind conditions drop below 10 knots or when the south westerly wind is in, kayaking in Gulf of Exmouth offers fishing, snorkelling, and reef viewing activities.  Access to the Gulf is relatively easy, with car access (4 wheel drive) allowed directly on the beach.  You can virtually pull up and launch your kayak directly into the water.

Turquoise Bay

With a combination of beautiful white sandy beaches and the Coral Reef only metres from the shore line, it is a must do place to visit whilst holidaying in Exmouth.  If snorkelling along the beautiful Turquoise Bay is not your thing, then the clear bottomed kayaks are an ideal alternative for Coral Reef and Fish Viewing.

Yardie Creek:

A protected salt water creek which sometimes opens up to the ocean.  Here you can view rock wallabies that reside in the cliff faces that line the creek.  There is also an abundance of marine life  in the Yardie creek system itself.  This can be kayaked in any wind direction and strength.  Yardie Creek Kayaking offers an excellent alternative thing to do when the wind is up and no other aquatic activities are suitable.


Sandy Bay

The shallow waters & endless pristine white sand of sandy bay make it an excellent and safe kayaking/swimming venue for families & young children.  Best in mild to moderate southeasterly winds. There  are shaded picnic tables so take along a hamper for lunch and make a day of it.  A trip to Sand Bay should definitely be on the itinerary.

Osprey Bay

Located 77kms from Exmouth is Osprey Bay.  It is also offers a recently redeveloped, larger campground in Cape Range National Park with direct beach access, suitable for caravans.

A quick paddle out on your kayak will get you to one of the dedicated kayak moorings 1.5km off shore.  Osprey Bay offers excellent kayaking and snorkelling.

Osprey Bay is also a very popular campground offering approximately 45 odd campsites.  No fires are permitted at this campground, and you will need to bring your own drinking water.

The new picnic area is sheltered and has direct views of the ocean.
