While we encourage our guests to bring their own mask, fins and snorkels. We DO NOT allow the use of full-face masks on our excursions aboard the vessel, Game Changer. During snorkelling activity, the need for more oxygen requires us to breathe faster. With a full-face mask, some of the exhaled carbon dioxide may not fully exit the device and it is possible to breathe in the contaminated air. This has potential to lead to unconsciousness and fatalities. As a result of many full-faced mask incidents, many snorkel tour operators, SCUBA companies in the Australia have prohibited the use of full-face masks.

Wave Break Island - The Top Spot for Snorkelling in Gold Coast

Constructed in 1985

The Wave Break Island is a man-made island  created to protect the western foreshore of the Gold Coast Broadwater from waves, high tides and currents. This island keeps the deep entrance to the ocean permanently stabilised and prevents land erosion in the area. The Wave Break Island provides a sheltered calm site ideal for snorkelling on Gold Coast and other water activities like boating, surfing, etc.
