Snorkelling at Julian Rocks with Blue Bay Divers

Come and join us on our half-day snorkelling tours to Julian Rocks, a small volcanic island less than five kilometres offshore, famous for its abundant fish life. With over 800 species of fish recorded and three types of resident turtles, Julian Rocks is a free-diver’s paradise. Swim with our friendly turtles, immerse yourself in a giant school of fish or simply observe the day to day life on a very busy reef.

The Northern side of Julian Rocks, also called the “Nursery”, is probably the best snorkelling site around the island as it ranges in depth from very shallow to a maximum of only 10 metres. The island provides shelter from the ocean swell, the current and the wind. We will supply you with mask, snorkel, fins and one of our very comfortable 5mm wetsuits for some extra warmth and buoyancy in the water. While you’re snorkelling, the boat is never far away, so you can climb back up for a little break or a drink and a small snack if you feel like it.

Enjoy beautiful Brunswick Heads with its stunning little boat harbour. On our way to Julian Rocks, you will experience a scenic cruise along the Brunswick river where rainforest meets the sandy shores and our resident dolphins play beside the boat.
