Broughton Island Swim
- Duration: 3 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Nelson Bay, NSW
- Product code: BIS
The Common Dolphins are fun, curious and interactive...and we'll be on the lookout for them as we head towards our favourite snorkelling spots at spectacular Broughton Island. An offshore species, these dolphins are regularly seen during our trips, and they generally steal the show!
Along the way, we'll take some time to learn about another of our incredible islands, Cabbage Tree (named for the Cabbage Tree Palms that line it's valleys!) - we might even be lucky enough to spot the pair of Sea Eagles that nest there...we often see them sitting on a tree branch or circling overhead! Be sure to snap a photo or two of this awesome island...home to a colony of Fur Seals during the winter months and also a fabulous snorkeling spot during the summer!
At Broughton, we'll anchor at picturesque Providence Beach or Coalshaft Bay for a swim or snorkel in the clear and protected waters. Our guide will introduce you to the islands' wonderful underwater world - wobbegong sharks (they hide under the rocks, like to sleep a lot, and don't eat people!), rays and a variety of fish are often seen.
If you'd prefer not to snorkel, you're welcome to simply swim in the shallows or even have a walk along the waters edge and explore the pristine beach.
With a maximum of 12 - 15 guests, your experience will be relaxed, personalised and crowd-free.
