On arrival at Sal Salis help yourself to a drink from the open bar as you admire the views out onto the Indian Ocean. Collect a complimentary snorkeling kit and wetsuit and head out to the house reef less than 10 metres from the beach. Marvel at the wealth of marine life below the water on your self guided reef exploration or enjoy the company of a Sal Salis guide who will be more than happy to share their in depth knowledge with you. This evening enjoy dining under the Milky Way as the resident chef prepares a seasonal 3 course menu for you.

Today take to the ocean on-board the beautiful 40 foot custom built Wave Rider vessel for the ultimate experience – swimming with marine giants; the gentle whale shark or the majestic humpback whale. Ningaloo Reef is one of the only places in the world to regularly spot whale sharks in large numbers with the optimum time being between April and July. Alternatively between August and October you can have the once in a lifetime opportunity to swim with magnificent humpback whales, an intimate and magical experience with these mighty creatures.

In the afternoon head out with a Sal Salis guide to the spectacular Yardie Creek Gorge. Admire the astounding views as your guide regales you with the history of the formation of this fascinating environment.

Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef is located within the Cape Range National Park and on the shores of one of the world’s greatest fringing coral reefs. Read on to find out more about their commitment to maintain and protect their unique natural environment.

Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef was designed to have minimal impact on the surrounding environment. The rooms and the main lodge facility are constructed above ground level to protect the fauna and flora. Boardwalks also prevent unnecessary soil erosion and the wilderness tents and lodge blend in naturally with the surrounding landscape.

Almost 100% of the camp’s power is generated by the sun through an array of solar panels. Filtered drinking water is provided at camp and guests are encouraged to refill their personal drinking containers.

Each en-suite bathroom has a nature loo (these very effective composting toilets are transported off-site to be cleaned) and the grey water from the showers and hand basins is carefully managed to ensure only filtered water is dispensed back into the ground. Soaps for guests are produced locally, are chemical free and incorporate native herbs. Sal Salis also supply organic shampoos and conditioners for guests. The bed linen is organic cotton and chemical free. The sheets are a sand colour and are not bleached to maintain pure whiteness.

In addition to the park entrance fees, Sal Salis also donate 5% of the business’s turnover to the Western Australia’s Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions, Parks and Wildlife Service to assist in conservation work across Western Australia.
