Upon arrival to your snorkelling Gold Coast tour, you will be greeted by one of our friendly Cooly Eco Adventures team members. Our crew will then assist you with fitting and collecting your snorkel equipment. (wetsuit, mask, snorkel, fins, SharkBanz) Prior to departure to the Pacific Ocean via the Tweed River, our Skipper will go through a short safety briefing and overview of the day's itinerary. Our tour begins with a 20min boat ride to Jungurra-Ngarrian (Cook Island Aquatic Reserve). The reserve lies approximately 600m off the shore of Fingal Head, NSW. It is a foraging ground to a significant number of sea turtles. The numbers are so significant that the island was originally named Turtle Island. It is here that we will dive in and meet these 'turtally' awesome locals! The surrounding waters of the reserve are also home to a wide variety of subtropical and temperate species of fish, crustaceans, and rays – just to name a few! Prepare to be awed by the magical underwater world that lies here on our doorstep! Whilst cruising along the scenic Tweed River we will see a myriad of passing local wildlife. Expect to possibly see eagles, dolphins and even the occasional kangaroo. Once we are out on the open ocean, you will see your snorkelling destination: Cook Island! Get ready for a 'turt-ally' awesome guided snorkel with the local Turtles. Our experienced snorkel guide will instruct you regarding the use of your snorkel equipment, essential safety signals and ensure that your gear is fitted correctly prior to entering the water. They will be in the water with you during your snorkel. After our snorkel, we will provide you with fresh fruit to enjoy, over our shared stories of the day as we make our return journey to the dock, where our journey began.
