Things to do in the surrounding World Heritage Area and Marine Park.
Shark Bay ranks as one of our planet’s most important wilderness regions. Here nature exceeds all expectations with an amazing range of experiences and things to see. To put it in perspective it is one of only eleven places in the world which meets all four selection criteria for "Natural" World Heritage listing.
When booking consider how many days you will need to try all the things you would like.
Spend a day at Monkey Mia – take part in the three daily dolphin feeds in the morning, and then choose a marine wildlife cruise, a visit to our famous black pearl farm, go snorkeling, try some fishing or just laze on the beach. (26km)
· Allow a day to explore Francois Peron National Park soaking up the fabulous colours where the Outback meets the sea, seeing dugong, sharks, dolphin and turtles swimming in the wild. You can take your own 4wd or go on a professional tour. (4km)
· Visit Shell Beach and be amazed by the millions upon millions of tiny “coquina” shell that are piled up to 10 metres deep along the coast. (42km)
· Watch birds and marine wildlife directly from the boardwalk at Eagle Bluff. Sharks and rays are often visible in the shallows. This has the advantage of being accessible in a 2WD. (18km)
· Catch or buy a feed of fresh seafood from the beach, a jetty or on a fishing charter, or from a professional fisherman on the jetty or at the seafood factory. Take it back the Alfresco kitchen at On the Deck to cook. Common species found in Shark Bay include whiting, pink snapper, bald chin groper and emperor as well as blue manna crabs in season.(1km)
Enjoy your favourite watersport in the Sharks Bay Marine Park - hundreds of locations totally uncrowded and pristine - snorkelling, diving, sailing, kitesurfing, windsurfing, scurfing, SUPing, canoeing just having a swim in the clear warm waters.
· Visit the Shark Bay Discovery Centre and learn about the 400 years of European intervention in the area and the reasons Shark Bay is a very Special World Heritage Area.
· Take a 4WD adventure to Steep Point – the most westerly point of mainland Australia. Use your own vehicle (requires experience in rough terrain and sand) or take a tour – minimum numbers required. (very full day). A scenic flight may be a solution if you don't want to drive.
· If visiting in October 2016 take a part in the “Dirk Hartog 400 Years Celebrations”.
· Don’t forget to drop in and see the world famous Hamelin Pool Stromatolites on your way in or out of Shark Bay.
