Snorkel with the Turtles at Cook Island
GOLD COAST AND TWEED COAST
Located less than 1km off Fingal Headland, the tiny volcanic outcrop of Cook Island is home to a permanent population of Green, Hawksbill & Loggerhead Turtles. You may find some of these gentle giants even getting nice close & personal ready for a photo.
From June to November, you’re likely to see the humpback whales on their annual migration. At the height of summer, the graceful ( and perfectly harmless! ) leopard sharks may be around. And at any time of the year, we are often joined by a pod of dolphins as we head out to the island.
Voted #1 Best Wildlife Experience on the Gold Coast!
