Tour Description

Drop your Acai bowl and your selfie stick for one second, there’s more to Byron Bay than meets the eye.  Ignite your inner Attenborough with a guided 2.5 hr Byron Bay turtle snorkel experience. Come face to face with giant rays, friendly sharks and sea turtles as they travel down the EAC to Julian Rocks.

Don’t worry, we get it you didn’t travel to Byron in your flippers and snorkel. Everything’s included, boat ‘n all so  with plenty of daily departures and only a 5-minute ride from shore, you’ve really got no excuse.

The legends at Byron Bay Dive centre accomodate all levels of swimming ability. It doesn’t matter if  you’re a fish out of water or a full blown mermaid/merman. As long as no floaties are required, you’re good to rock ‘n roll.

When the crew at Byron Bay Dive Centre aren’t guiding you in the water you’ll likely find them volunteering for the NSW Rural Fire Service or operating beach cleans with our friends at Positive Change For Marine Life. You would be hard up to find a local independent company who care more about the planet as these guys.

Julian Rocks is widely considered to be one the best dive and snorkel sites in Australia. To have the opportunity to snorkel here for under 100 big ones? We think that’s pretty spesh.
