    Located just 2 1/2 hours North of Sydney, try a marine discovery and sailing tour in Port Stephens, NSW Australia. 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 lighthouse 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 seabird, 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.

    You'll anchor in the lea of the island, sheltered from the prevailing summer breeze, then our dive master will introduce you to a rich and ever-changing underwater world. There are a great many species of fish, sea urchins and soft corals and (occasionally) 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.

    Requirements: You need to know how to swim if you want to participate in the snorkelling. Dress warmly for the sailing and bring your swimmers and towels, we will provide all snorkelling gears and the expertise of our Dive Master.
