    Trip to Muiron Islands (2 Dives)

    This tour involves 2 dives at the best sites of the day. Dive Ningaloo likes to visit the less frequented sites and travel further to get to exclusive spots. Between dives we land on the beach for lunch and a look around on your own deserted island. Pick up from 8am, return 4pm approx. These two islands are located only 9nm from Exmouth. The Muirons are different to the west side of the peninsular in terms of coral life, even although they are located close by. Here there is an abundance of soft corals, gorgonians, and sponges fringing the edge of the islands and incredible fish life, turtles and sometimes mantas to inhabit it. Soft corals provide beautiful colours and movement in the water and also are a favourite of turtles, which are there in abundance. Many of the sites also have swim throughs, filled with glass fish and cod. Our favourite site is a beautiful drift dive between the islands. If nudibranchs are your thing, then you’ll love these dives!
