Lord Howe Island offers some amazing diving, as well as being, a premier holiday destination for snorkellers.
Lord Howe is breathtakingly beautiful. At the southern end, their peaks often shrouded by mist, Mt Gower and Lidgbird soar 800 metres above the island. Below are rolling hills and cool rainforests of native kentia palms and giant banyans, the world's largest tree. The Island is also blessed with pristine white beaches.
The diving is equally as impressive. One particular long stretch called Ned's Beach has proved to be the highlight for thousands of snorkellers. Before you're even knee-deep, the water's boiling with hundreds of mullet, wrasse, parrotfish, emperors, trevally, even kingfish, all associating human legs with free eats! Be sure to bring some bread, because having fish take food out of your hand can be a real buzz. Lord Howe is at the crossroads of many currents resulting in a melting pot of tropical species and southern pelagics. A local census puts the number of fish species at 590 and different corals at 94.Popular dive sites including the Admiralty Islands are only a 15 minute boat trip from PRO DIVE's Boat Shed. The Admiralty Islands are home to over 30 dive sites with a group of volcanic formations of large pinnacles, coral reef walls and large schools of fish. Dive depths are from 15 to 40 meters, with an average of 20 to 30 meters visibility. Diving season is from Sept- May.
Accommodation on Lord Howe ranges from family-run guest lodges to self-contained apartments. Points of interest include eight restaurants, several general stores and boutiques, two banks, cinema, hair salon, liquor store, police station, museum, Wilson's Bike Hire and PRO DIVE! For the non-divers, there is bird-watching and/or photography, golf, tennis, deep-sea fishing, surfing or windsurfing. For the more adventurous, excellent bushwalking, mountain climbing and bike riding will keep the heart and lungs moving. You can also sign up for a bus tour, a glass-bottomed boat cruise or scenic flight.
