Learn about Australia’s natural environment and native marine life on an easy nature walk and snorkeling tour. This tour is designed for visitors who want to learn more about Australia’s underwater and land based environments and animals. Whether you are a just starting or an experienced snorkeler, there is plenty to see on this 2-hour tour.

What to Expect

Choose your departure time and meet your guide at Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve. Next begin an easy nature walk along the headlands where your guide tells you about Sydney’s Aboriginal culture and local history.

Arrive at Shelly Beach for a safety briefing and fitting of provided snorkel gear and wet suits. Your guide leads the group into the calm, clear waters where you look out for fish and other sea creatures. 

Your guide is nearby for help or answer questions and the area has shallow and deeper water so all experience levels are accommodated. Your guide identifies sea creatures that you see and gives an overview of what marine life you might spot including blue groper, cuttlefish and sometimes, protected species like seadragons and black cod.

Your tour ends at the original departure point.
