Snorkeling the Tangalooma Wrecks

Saturday, March 15th, 2008

The Tangalooma wrecks are a perfect place to snorkel. The wrecks are a prominent land mark on Moreton Island, and the site is recognised as a premier snorkeling destination in the world. The wrecks were created as a shelter for boats and yachts but at the same time provide a reef for fish and coral. There are many different species of reef and tropical fish, as well as invertabrates to be seen here. The variety is comparable to marine life on the Great Barrier Reef.

The guided tour departs from Get Wet Sports where all equipment is available, eg. snorkels, masks, wet suits, flippers, mesh gloves, as well as buoyancy boards for less confident swimmers. A custom built, stylish boat whisks you to the Wrecks. Then the amazing experience begins. The pleasure of swimming amongst the wrecks and with schools of fish, literally within your grasp is exhilirating. Some of the fish varieties swimming past are trevally,kingfish, yellowtail, garfish,rockcod,bream and the resident wobbegong. There are ofcoarse tropical delights such as parrot fish,and clown fish. What a thrill to hand feed the fish, and see the frenzied activity. An added bonus are the dolphins and green turtles which may be seen in natures garden as well. To snorkel the wrecks is like bieng transported to another world.

This tour can be booked at Get Wet Sports and please check with the proffesional staff or the blackboard for daily tours and times. This is an unforgetable tour of exhilirating excitment.
