Sydney's Best Snorkel Tour

Cabbage Tree Bay is unique location due to its proximity to Sydney. As a aquatic reserve it hold an astonishing amount of wildlife. From meter long stingrays to tiny seahorses, Cabbage Tree Bay has it all.

As a long time resident of Manly, me and my family have snorkeled the area for many years. We know every corner, cave, and cavern in the Cabbage Tree Bay. In order to have a better relationship and understanding of the wildlife and nature here, we like to bring people on a tour of the bay to educate people on what the ocean has to offer us, so that we can better understand why would want to protect these areas.

So come along with us and experience the wealth that nature has to offer here.
