Why come snorkelling with us?

We are the only snorkel tour provider on North Stradbroke Island with access to local offshore sites, which means you get to experience the beauty and magic of the Moreton Bay Marine Park as the local marine life do.

We provide all gear, morning/afternoon tea on the boat, and experienced, trained guides to ensure you and your family have a fun, safe and exciting underwater adventure that you won’t forget!

What to expect on your snorkel tour:

Our snorkel tours run for around 3 to 3 ½ hours. On arrival at the dive centre, you’ll fill out the necessary paperwork, be personally fitted for wetsuits and equipment, and briefed on the experience ahead by your guide. We also have GoPro cameras for hire (at an additional cost), so you can capture the magic of your underwater experience!

You’ll then enjoy a short boat ride to one of our local snorkelling sites, followed by guided snorkelling sessions at two different locations, with refreshments provided in between. You will then return to the dive centre for hot showers, warm towels, and a chance to download your GoPro footage from the trip!
