Snorkelling tours of the Julian Rocks are available every day. Snorkellers are taken to the most protected and sheltered areas possible, usually the Nursery. Here the depths are shallow (three to 12 metres) and you will see just as much marine life as the divers. All snorkellers are carefully supervised and the boat is only ever a short swim away.
From June to August humpback whales travel up the east coast of Australia. From September they travel back down the coast with their newly born calves. As Cape Byron is the most easterly point in Australia, it's a great spot to do a little whale watching. When time and ocean conditions permit, a little sightseeing of the Cape and coastline is included.
