There are a couple of options for boat tours. I enjoyed a two hour tour of the southern bay which stopped at four locations where I saw colourful fish, coral, turtles, sharks and a stingray. I wish I'd also taken the North Bay snorkel and turtle tour.

The lagoon beach is great, with one of the best features being the Lord Howe Environmental Tours operating at the CBD end of the beach. They hire kayaks etc. , but also do coral viewing and snorkeling tours which we took, and couldn't recommend highly enough. Its a great way to see the lagoon, and the coral and tropical fish,...

The 2-hour glass bottom boat coral viewing and snorkelling trip operated by the Lord Howe Environmental Tours shop at the LHI's Lagoon Beach is an LHI must-do for anyone like me who love corals and snorkelling. My wish of meeting a 2-headed fish (wrasse), native to LHI was fulfilled by captain Ken who chose the right spot for snorkelling to... More

This is just the most wonderful sight, the water is so clear you can see the bottom. The lagoon is protected naturally by a reef with makes it safe for the little boats and swimming and snorkelling. You can walk for miles along the white sand and enjoy the peace and serenity. All the tour boats leave from here.

The long lagoon beach on the western side of Lord Howe has the great iconic views of the two high mountains that dominate the southern end of Lord Howe. The dive, fishing and other recreation (glass bottom and snorkel tour) boat depart from this beach a few times a day. On a busy day you might find 20 or 30... More

the highlight of the holiday was the glass bottom boat and snorkling inside the lagoon on Lord Howe Island. These guys run a very tidy, profesional business on what is very beautiful part of the world. The glass boat bottom was great , however getting in the water and actually experiencing the abundant coral and fish life was overwhelming to... More

The Lagoon on the western side of LHI makes it a sub-tropical paradise. Beautiful views of the mountains with a turquoise lagoon in the foreground. Magnificent. The beach is very very pretty. You can just chill and take-in the views, while the lagoon is a great place to swim, snorkle, dive and kayak. And it's safe for the kiddies!

This is a great spot to sit and have a BBQ or a picnic lunch. Great fun to swim around or out to the pontoon. You can also hire paddleboards and other equipment on the beach. Good fun!

From Lagoon beach you get the beauty of the two mountains that dominate LHI, My Gower and Mt. Lidgbird. The clouds that swirl around them change constantly. In front is the Lagoon, a paradise of swimming, snorkelling, water craft, coral viewing, turtle watching, sailing etc etc. If you can't find something to do here you must be dead! The main... More
