Mermaids on the Ningaloo Reef

The Ningaloo Reef: where giant sharks of the blue come to feast on the tinniest of life. Where humpback whales sing and play, throwing their gigantic selves to the skies, only to crash back down to sea, making waves. Where black and white predators thrive, and turtles’ nest, tigers of the sea prowl, and dolphins…

Manta Rays Of Ningaloo

Within the aquatic realm, I often try to measure an animal’s intelligence with the curiosity which it displays. The more curious an animal, the more “brains” it has. As fish go, manta rays are certainly the intellectuals of the Ningaloo Reef. Pound for pound, they boast the largest brain of any elasmobranch or bony fish,…

Finding Nemo’s cousin on the Ningaloo Reef

Charismatic Clownfish Anemonefish are fiery personalities, defending their homes with aggression which far surpasses their size. No intruder is too big for the hearty “clownfish”, and they are loved by divers and photographers for their animated, territorial displays. It’s probably for this reason that they were chosen to star in the Disney Pixar Blockbuster: “Finding Nemo”. On…

Murray Pattison

When I met Murray, I was fascinated by his stories of Exmouth WA and the infatuation he had with ‘the little prawn.’ He had an extensive knowledge of the sea, wildlife (African, Australia, sea land, and air creatures), boats, farming, history. He’s an interesting character if you spend the time to listen. Mystified by his…

Geez oh, peats! The past few weeks have FLOWN. I’ve blinked, and they have disappeared. Murray, myself and the crew are now in full swing swimming with whale sharks and all the other critters the Ningaloo Reef has on offer lately, even seeing orcas! The Ningaloo Reef is turning it on lately, and it’s been…

Chris Jansen is one of our photographers for the whale shark season. Our season is about to start, EKEKEKEKEKKKKKKK on the 26 March and it seemed fitting to highlight the Live Ningaloo crew for anyone interested. When I asked Chris how he came here – I received a chronological account from when he met Kerry, his…

Ningaloo Turtle Program has #TurtlePower

When Murray first told me about Exmouth and the Ningaloo Reef, one of the memories retold with special warmth was when he stayed up all night to see turtles hatch. Being originally from the Northwest of America, I likened the experience to the bald eagle hatchlings, but that isn’t something you can see up close…
