Gold Coast Snorkeling

Home » Snorkeling

For those who wish to stay on top of the water, the Gold Coast’s Wave Break Island is a fantastic site for snorkelling. This site is ideal for both the beginner and the advanced as there are over 50 different species of fish with depths ranging from 0 – 15m.  Many of the fish school in their hundreds and are very people friendly, this provides excellent opportunities for underwater photography and fish feeding. Due to the location there is minimum swell and you are secluded from other boating activities, as well as a beautiful beach to relax on in between exploring what Wave Break has to offer.
