The Leading Boat Tour Operator In Jurien Bay

So Who Is Turquoise Safaris?

Turquoise Safaris is the leading boat tour operator in Jurien Bay specialising in Sea Lion Tours. Our guides are long time residents who know all the secret spots in and around the area. We pride ourselves on giving all our customers the most unique offshore experience Jurien Bay has to offer.                                                                                                                                  Located to the north of Perth, Western Australia, Jurien Bay is 220 km along the Indian Ocean Drive. It is a serene fishing town endowed with long stretches of beach and vibrantly coloured reefs teeming with marine life.

The thriving diversity of Jurien Bay’s marine life, its shallow water accessibility and turquoise clarity reveal a fascinating line-up of rainbow coloured fish, sponges and breathtaking corals. Protected by an arc of small islands and limestone reefs, Jurien Bay has some of the best snorkel spots you can find along the coast.                                                                                                                  While the local fishermen of Jurien’s booming cray-fishing industry head out for another catch, we are helping the next group on board for a sea lion tour. Spectacular snorkeling includes marine life explorations and plenty of opportunities for interaction with the very curious and sociable Australian Sea Lions.
