Exploring Lord Howe Island on your own or with friends and family is no doubt a grand adventure, but it’s made an even richer experience if you sign up for a tour. Not only is a Lord Howe Island Tour a great way to get a little insider knowledge and expert guidance (whether it be with snorkelling, fishing, diving, or just good old-fashioned bushwalking), tour groups are also a great opportunity to have a chat with fellow travellers, meet new people, and perhaps learn a little something along the way.
Nature and walking tours are a very popular option on Lord Howe Island. This is a great way to get up close with local wildlife and find out more about the island’s unique flora and fauna. On a bus tour, you can cover all of the major sights in a day. Another popular option is scuba diving. You’ll need a registered instructor, and there’s no better way to explore the island’s unique marine landscape of Lord Howe Island. Snorkelling tours are also a fantastic day out; the boat will take you out to explore the island’s reefs.
Tours will usually pick you up from where you are staying, and staff at Lord Howe Island accommodation are usually more than happy to recommend activities and tours you might enjoy.
