Although Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is undeniably worth seeing, it’s not the only underwater environment that you should consider checking out when Down Under. A scooter company is offering visitors a chance to see Sydney’s coast underwater. Operating in Gordon’s Bay, Sydney Underwater Scooters lets you explore Australia’s maritime world via James Bond-like, propeller-operated, mini-rockets, aka underwater scooters.
Take a guided, two-hour underwater tour in the Gordon’s Bay marine reserve. Your certified instructor will provide you with a diving mask, a quality wetsuit to keep you warm, thick diving boots to keep your feet safe from injury, and a personal scooter to propel you through the water. All you need to bring is a towel and sunscreen. Tours are suitable for swimmers of all levels from ages 16 to 75.
The bay itself is a protected reserve that is home to a variety of marine wildlife, including the eastern sea blue groper, octopus, and cuttlefish. Famous for its impeccable visibility, it’s Sydney’s only underwater nature trail.
Tours start at $115. To book, contact Sydney Underwater Scooters via its official website.
