Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We went to swim with turtles with Waresports Guru. It was an awseome experience even for me who had done very little snorkeling before. Turtles, Eagle Rays, and so many other beautiful sea creatues. Kerrie took us out in the water so we had an experienced local with us. Higly recommended.

I dive here regularly and never tire of seeing all the wonderful creatures. This is an easy dive site and is suitable for beginners and photographers alike. Every dive brings different things. We get grey nurse sharks and mantas regularly visiting. Nudibranch lovers will be amazed at the huge variety of different species that are found here. A number of different dive companies do dives out here. Tweed Seasports is who I dive with but Kirra Dive and Gold Coast dive shops go out as well.

I went diving here last weekend. The reef is suitable for beginners and experienced divers. There is plenty of aquatic life below the surface. I saw a shark, ray and a turtle. Please note that the ocean is quite choppy on the reef so tablets are recommended before you dive. A wonderful little surprise just off the coast.

Had a fantastic day in the water with our guide Chris, felt safe & secure the entire time. We got to see Dolphins and a Grey nurse shark and see and touch the massive green turtles. Truly wonder experience

Do yourself a favour and head out through the heads at Tweed and take the 20 minutes to get to cook island. I saw the biggest turtle I have ever seen here. Great snorkelling and diving from beginners to advance.

Get out to Cook Island during the right conditions and you will be wowed. Dive operators frequent the Sanctuary Zone to visit the abundant Fish, Turtles, Rays Dolphins and Whales but you can access the area with little more than a SUP or Kayak off the beach.

Best during the Autumn-Spring months, with lights winds and minimal swell, take your snorkel and enjoy.
