Snorkeling

Confidently explore our amazing underwater world

Have you ever fancied exploring the underwater world but just never got around to it? Perhaps you don’t know where to go, don’t have any equipment or maybe life has simply got in the way.

With our guided Snorkel Tours, you can confidently and safely explore the amazing underwater world that exists right on our door step. Our beautiful Shelly Beach, part of the Cabbage Tree Bay Marine Reserve is abundant with marine life.

The site ranges from two to twelve metres and is protected from the ocean swell by a reef on the right hand side of the beach – this means conditions are almost always calm with good visibility.

Shelly Beach is home to a huge array of underwater species including Wobbegong and Port Jackson sharks (they won’t bite!), the big beautiful Blue Groper (they love to follow you around) and loads of big schools of fish. We’re there every day, so grab some hire snorkel gear or come along on a guided snorkel tour and we’ll tell you where the best spots are!
