Ocean Park Marine Safari: Snorkel, Wildlife and Adventure Tour!
Join us on an action-packed full-day tour exploring the remarkable Shark Bay Marine Park from both above and below the water! The Marine Safari aims to provide our guests with the ultimate Shark Bay experience. Our well-trained crew will take you to see Steep Point, the westernmost point of mainland Australia and the Zuytdorp cliffs, help you set foot on Dirk Hartog Island and visit 3 amazing snorkel sites within the pristine South Passage. We also aim to show you as much incredible marine life as we can with Dolphins, Dugongs, Turtles, Sharks and Rays abundant in these waters all year round. Humpback Whales can also be seen from July to November.
Why Choose Us?
Owned and run by Marine Biologists, at Shark Bay Dive our mission is to educate our guests on the importance of Marine Conservation and what better place to do that than on the water and within a World Heritage-listed Marine Park. Our Marine Biologist guides will conduct wildlife talks throughout the day, immersing you in the fascinating ecology of our region and are more than happy to answer all your questions to make the day as educational as possible.
We provide morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea as well as cold refreshments and coffee and tea throughout the day. All your snorkeling gear is provided including wetsuits, however, you are more than welcome to bring your own if you have it. Bring bathers, a towel, some footwear and a camera.
All snorkel guides are certified PADI professionals and there will be at least one Marine Biologist crew member on every tour (sometimes there will be three!). Our skippers have a combined 30 years experience captaining vessels in Shark Bay
We depart Denham at 8am and return at 3:30pm, if we are having too much fun the return time sometimes stretches to 4pm
