Never before has Broughton Island & Cabbage Tree Island been accessible like this for freedivers & snorkellers!

Broughton island is situated a short 35-45 minute boat ride from Nelson Bay in Port Stephens (2.5 hours drive from Sydney). With an array of beautiful bays, clear blue water, amazing underwater marine life and set behind the stunning cliff lined backdrop and white sandy beaches, it is without a doubt one of NSW's biggest gems. 

One of the best things about the islands is that no matter the wind conditions, there is always a beach and a cove that's protected and beautiful to swim in. We are commonly joined by dolphins on the drive out to the islands, and you will most likely see Blue Gropers, loads of fish, turtles & maybe even the friendly local grey nurse sharks!

- Freediving / Snorkelling Island Coves
