Enjoy the calm water of the Bay and meet with the local resident Bottlenose dolphins before cruising to one of the many offshore islands.

Our favourite snorkelling spots are light house cove on Fingal island and the Western side of Cabbage Tree Island.

The rainforest of Cabbage Tree Island is home to the Gould’s Petrel – Australia’s most endangered sea bird, this island is also the most southern rainforest island in Australia.

Fingal Island is home to one of NSW oldest lighthouse, we can venture right under the tower where lighthouse cove offers a unique seascape for snorkelers.

At anchor in the lea of the island, sheltered from the prevailing summer breeze, our dive master will introduce you to a rich and ever-changing under water world.

There is lot of species of fish, sea urchins and soft corals and often sea turtles to be seen.

Then we will hoist the sail and take you through some of the most scenic landscape along the NSW coast. The volcanic islands and the headlands of Yaccaba and Tomaree are awesome sights from the water and sailing back to port complete a fabulous experience.
