Wow! Broughton Island is so beautiful! I had an amazing time snorkeling and swimming in the water. The water was crystal clear and the weather was perfect. Our tour guide was fun! We enjoyed having him on board.

I really enjoyed this cruise and would definitely recommend it. It was the perfect way to spend the day at the island! We got to swim and snorkel through the water and saw the gorgeous wildlife underneath. The view was simply unforgettable. Everything was organized well and the crew was extremely helpful.

Immerse yourself in the beautiful blue waters of Broughton Island on an adventurous snorkeling experience!

Broughton Island forms a part of the Myall Lakes National Park and is home to a multitude of sea creatures. Gear up for a scenic cruise towards the island before the ship anchors, giving you the perfect view of Providence Beach or Esmeralda Cove. This experience is perfect for families, kids, and just about anyone who loves to explore ocean life. You will find an abundance of ocean creatures, making your snorkeling experience quite memorable. Alternatively, if you don’t want to snorkel, you can jump in for a quick swim, or even just sit back and relax aboard the ship.

The island is ideal for dolphin watching so keep your eyes wide open. These unique creatures are playful and interactive so don’t miss the opportunity to spot them.

All snorkeling gear will be provided to you upon anchoring and our crew will be there at all times to provide any assistance needed.
