Snorkel Trips to the Solitary Islands Marine Park Coffs Harbour
Daily snorkelling trips around the sanctuary zones of the Solitary Islands Marine Park for the experienced and unexperienced snorkellersCome and Snorkel with Jetty Dive aboard one of our boats to the Solitary Islands Marine Park sanctuaries and discover the underwater wonders. No previous snorkelling experience is necessary however swimming experience is desirable! (you need to be able to scissor kick your legs)
The Sanctuary zones of the marine park have an amazing amount of fishlife, anything from the tropical varieties like "Nemo and Dory" (Clownfish and Blue Tangs!) to the "silvery" schools of fish from the sub-tropics. Turtles are common and maybe you will see dolphins on the trip out.
When do the Snorkelling Trips start?
Th trips usually start at either of two times in the morning and also some afternoons.
What Snorkelling conditions are we to expect?On it's day, the Solitary Islands Marine Park has spectacular conditions and snorkelling. However that "day" is reliant on two factors, the weather and the visibility (clarity of the water).
Surface conditions can become too choppy or the swell may make it too rough, whilst the visibility must exceed around 15 metres.
The depth of the water varies from 5 metres to 20 metres, so it is not like areas of the Great Barrier Reef that have shallow calm snorkelling.
The Solitary Islands feature is the amount of fishlife and corals in the sanctuary zones, you will see lots of fish, turtles and coral. ...But it needs to be good conditions... we explain this because we do find we postpone or cancel a few trips because of the conditions. We would rather not take you out there if we know it's not going to be good!
Snorkel guides are not always on the trips, if you require a guide, please discuss this with the shop when booking.
