Diving Lighthouse Bay or Ningaloo Reef dive sites
Lighthouse Bay is an excellent dive site on the north of the Ningaloo Reef that offers diving along a substantial ridge line known as Blizzard Ridge… which has nothing to do with its visibility! Its a single ridge line running through a sandy desert, which acts like a sealife magnet much of the time. Mostly around 12-15m in depth, its for divers only. The range of sealife, and especially big sealife – from dolphins to mantas to reef sharks to hard and soft corals, moray eels, large pelagic fish, turtles and so much more – make this a dive site well worth visiting.
The West Coast has a wide range of great dive sites - whether diving Lighthouse Bay or the Ningaloo Reef depends on the conditions on the day. With names including Nick's Lump, Blue Holes, the Gap and False Passage. Whether caves, swim throughs, huge bombies or walls, the dive sites offer divers the opportunity to experience a wide range of Ningaloo sealife and its amazing hard and soft corals too.
