Snorkelling on the Gold Coast with the turtles is just a 20 minute boat ride from Coolangatta/Tweed Heads. We snorkel out at the Cook Island Marine Reserve, which is a small protected island just off the coast with a large population of sea turtles. Cook Island plays host to an abundance of soft and hard coral gardens, lion fish, groper, damselfish, clown fish, kingfish, schools of baitfish and many more.
Green turtles are abundent all year round, with the occasional Loggerhead and Hawksbill turtles adopting this turtle sanctuary as home. You’ll be provided with top quality masks, snorkels, fins and springsuits/full length wetsuits [seasonal]. For those who like a little extra buoyancy in the water, we have ‘noodles’ which will help to keep you safely afloat, as well as view boards for those not so comfortable in the water, or great for the little ones!
