Snorkeling on the Gold Coast with the Turtles is Just a 20 minute boat ride from Coolangatta/Tweed Heads. We Snorkel out at the Cook Island Marine Reserve, which is a small protected island just off the coast with a large population of sea turtles.
Cook Island plays host to an abundance of soft and hard coral gardens, lots of fish life like lionfish, groper, damselfish, clown fish, kingfish, schools of baitfish to many to name. Green turtlesare abundent all year round, with the occasional loggerhead and hawks billturtles also hanging around inthis turtle sanctuary.
You’ll be provided with top quality masks, snorkels, fins and springsuits for the warm months and full length wetsuits for the colder months!! For those who like a little extra buoyancy in the water, we have ‘noodles’ which will help to keep you safely afloat and we also have view boards for those not so comfortable. Great for the Little Kids!!!
The snorkelling is done off the back of our boat Whale Watcher, with the reef only a short 5-10 metre swim away. Your snorkelling guide will give you a thorough briefing before you enter the water, with some tips and techniques for the first-timers. There is a professional snorkelling guide in the water with you at all times who will guide you around on a tour, and is there for any questions or extra assistance.
