You will be at Cathedral Cove for 1 hour. This is more than enough time to explore, photograph, swim and simply enjoy this special place.

There are NO rubbish and toilet facilities at Cathedral Cove, so please be prepared to bring all your rubbish out with you. We have bins on board for small amounts of rubbish.

The boarding ramp may sit in shallow water, so you might get wet feet.

Please read safety instructions on the beach and listen carefully to staff when using the taxi - they are trying to keep you safe.

Cathedral Cove is a fantastic marine reserve, so leave your fishing gear at home. Don’t forget water, sunscreen, warm clothes, towel, snorkelling gear and camera.
