Nguthungulli Julian Rocks in Byron Bay has been rated as one of the BEST snorkel spots in Australia by Australian Geographic Magazine and ranks even higher than the Great Barrier Reef! The marine life here is truly unique and a great place to snorkel. Snorkelling tours of Nguthungulli Julian Rocks are available every day. Snorkellers are taken to the most protected and sheltered areas possible where depths are shallow (3 to 12m) and marine life exists in abundance. All snorkelers are carefully supervised and the boat is only ever a short swim away. This is a great introduction to the marine life in the area and you are likely to see Turtles, Rays, a variety of colourful fish and crustaceans. It only takes 5 to 10 minutes to get out to Julian Rocks, but even the boat trip itself is lots of fun. We regularly see dolphins and whales when in season. 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 we include a little sightseeing of the Cape and coastline as well.
