Tidal Reveal

Guided Ocean Floor Tours

About the Adventure

Explore the ocean floor at low tide! This unique experience brings you face to face with life under the world’s highest tides. 

The adventure begins at the Burntcoat Head Park lighthouse, where your friendly, knowledgeable guide starts your journey down to the expansive ocean floor. Throughout the 1-2 kilometre route, you’ll stop to discover tidal pools and the life beneath the surface of the mudflats. Along the way, listen to local tales and learn the influence of people on this landscape shaped by the tides. Total length of tour: approximately 1 hour 15 minutes.
