West Coast Day 118 - Exmouth

ExplorOz - David & Michelle

Finally, we drove to Exmouth today. It seems as if we have been travelling forever to get here. Both David and I have been longing to get to what we expected to be diving paradise. The water is beautiful, the beaches are white but the caravan parks have little shade. We chose to stay at the one with the beautiful pool on the beach side and it seems to have everything including backpackers accommodation, upmarket accommodation, camping and a scuba diving school. We drove into town and as expected it was small but had a beachy feel. We visited the dive shops and tourist information centre and booked a double boat dive out to the Murion Islands 9km offshore to the North West.

We priced all the diving and we had to admit we were a little shocked to find the pricing a little higher than expected. The most disappointing thing for us is that there is very little saving for us even though we have brought all our own gear including tanks and weightbelts. On a $130 per person boat trip we saved only $20.

We didn't have any fresh food and were trying to keep our expenses down so dinner was just a thai vegetable curry made with sweet potato and dried lime leaves.
