Very nice staff, nice hotel, nice rooms. Good value for what it costs. It's not that close to the town, but they run a free bus during the day. At night, you can grab a cab or just walk. It's like a 40 minute walk...More
I recommend a stay at Mantarays if you can score a decent deal. Its located just out of town and accordingly very quiet.
Very comfortable rooms, great food and staff were great.
Views of humpback whales passing by out to sea - priceless.
We had a one bed apartment with ocean view. Room was large and the views over the ocean were excellent. The 3 rating is due to the tired furnishings and staff not cleaning the room properly. Our King bed had a ridge in the middle...More
It is in the best spot to enjoy water views, beach access and sunrise. The rooms are large, however, lots of TLC needed. As mentioned in other reviews the two mattresses pushed together have visible valley dips and rises. The pillows were past their best...More

Hi there, as indicated above, if you have a car you can drive yourself around to the areas where you can snorkel (Oyster Stacks and Turquoise Bay, etc). This is the cheapest option and the areas are easy to drive to and access as it is only about an hour from Exmouth. Hire of snorkel, mask and flippers is under $20 per day. Cheap. If you are going to do a few days of swimming/snorkelling, it would probably be best to buy some. There is a place in town (near the IGA supermarket) that was selling sets of snorkels, goggles and flippers for only $40. You will also have to pay for a national park entry to the Ningaloo area, which i think was about $13 - also pretty cheap.
We did not go on a snorkleing tour, but obviously they are more expensive. Be careful who you choose. We saw a couple of "dodgy" looking operators.
I do not think that a wetsuit is necessary as the water is quite warm - your biggest issue will probably sunburn - so sunscreen and/or adequate coverage is definitely recommended (ie: wear a rashie shirt/vest)
