Byron Bay Turtle Snorkel In Byron Bay
From $110pp

There is definitely more that meets the eye to Byron Bay than diverse travelers, salty blonde hair, and lush hinterland.

Ignite your inner Attenborough with a guided 2.5 hour Byron Bay turtle snorkeling tour. Come face to face with several types of sea turtles, giant rays, and friendly sharks, as they travel down the East Australian Current to Julian Rocks. Now, we know you didn’t swim to Byron Bay with your flippers and snorkeling gear ready for this excursion, unless you’re up there with the Olympians. Even if you’re not a professional snorkeler, the legends at Byron Bay Dive Centre have you covered with a free lesson, but don’t be late! Missing out on this mandatory briefing will mean sacrificing your day with our friends below the surface.

Just as much as they care about your safety, the team at Byron Bay Dive Centre are massive guardians of the environment, taking extra measures to preserve our world by volunteering for NSW Rural Fire Service, or operating beach cleans with our friends at Positive Change for Marine Life. It is truly rare to find those who match the care that Byron Bay Dive Centre shows for the environment. Julian Rocks is widely considered to be on the best dive and snorkel sites in Australia, if not the world. We say it’s pretty special to have the chance to snorkel here with a team who knows the environment like their back yard.
