Less than a two hour flight from Sydney or Brisbane is the World Heritage listed Lord Howe Island.
Offering marine activities within its pristine waters and stunning surroundings, Marine Adventures can cater for all your holiday needs.
This includes glass bottomed boat coral viewing, North Bay Turtle and Nature Tours with guided bird walks, 2-Spot Snorkel and Turtle Tours, Around Island Cruises, Sunset Cruises and group packages, such as picnics, barbecues and Deep Sea Fishing.
Marine Adventures is owned and run by sixth generation Islander, Anthony Riddle. His family arrived on Lord Howe Island in 1854 and he has many stories and lots of knowledge of the marine and wild life on the island, which has been passed down through the generations.
From $55 to $75
Come and explore the large variety of fish, turtles, rays and corals of the world’s most southern barrier reef on Marine Adventures’ glass-bottomed boat, ‘Adventure One’.
As you cruise slowly to the beautiful North Bay, drift over the wreck of the ‘Favourite’, which ran aground here in 1965 and those who wish can snorkel the wreck.
While exploring North Bay you can climb up Mount Eliza, walk to the Old Gulch and Herring Pools, view the sea bird rookery (seasonal), swim or just sit and laze the day away.
The cruise includes morning/afternoon refreshments and historical commentary by sixth-generation Islander, Anthony. He also takes you on an optional guided bird walk, to show you the rookeries of the migratory birds.
