Exmouth - Ningaloo Reef - Western Australia
Just a short two and a half hour flight from Perth and you will find yourself in Exmouth, one of the top spots for quality game and sportfishing. There are around 500 different species of fish in the area, and it’s one of Australia’s top diving spots.
Between the times of mid-March to late July is when you can expect to come face-to-fin with one of the ocean’s gentle giants, the whale-shark. This is one of the world’s best locations for these one-on-one interactions.
There’s also gigantic humpback whales to be found, especially between June and November. Adding to this year-round cycle of visitors, the region plays host to turtle nesting from November through to March.
To top it all off of course, there’s also our Exmouth Fishing Trips which offer a world-class experience!
If you’re set on an Exmouth Fishing Trips, then you will want to experience the Novotel Ningaloo Resort located right next to the Ningaloo Reef.
Their apartments offer beautiful contemporary décor and feature stunning views that stretch out across the turquoise waters of the Gulf. Both the one and two bedroom apartments feature balconies, LCD TV's, spa baths, working desks, broadband and wireless internet connection.
With a quality, comfortable bed, you are sure to appreciate the soft duvet and harmonious colours from the moment you doze off through to the minute you wake up. It’s the attention to detailed features like this that’ll put you in the right zone to haul in that big one the next day.
Located on Sunrise Beach in the Exmouth Marina, Novotel Ningaloo is close to the reef as well as the Cape Range National Park. In addition to the fishing, the resort also offers a great range of other fun-filled actives to keep you and your family occupied.
Located right on the tip of a peninsula just off Australia’s West coast, Exmouth’s calm waters provide great access to the gulf around the eastern side of the cape. Just a quick drive away, anglers can enjoy one of the best parts about an Exmouth Fishing Trip – the deep blue waters of the Ningaloo Reef.

Its location close to the continental shelf is unique, and you will be amazed when you discover the large number of fish in the area – there are over 40 species of game fish on offer.
There are a range of different charters available depending on the type of species you are chasing, be it a bonefish or a large blue marlin.
